I'm a Writer...

I’m a writer. However, I’m a terrible writer. I sit in class and look around at all these creative, intelligent, grammatically correct writers who have so much more potential than I. I write thoughts that turn into sentences which turn into paragraphs, but unfortunately that is where they end. I see students write 50,000 words easily where as I can barely write 50. My stories are all the same as they depict a broken girl who has no hope left for herself. I can not steer away from this platform. I’m a writer….a terrible writer.

- The Life of a Writer


  1. This is a brilliant piece of fiction crafted by an unreliable narrator who clearly underestimates the power of her own voice.


  2. I think we all feel this way at some point. The best advice I have ever heard is to keep writing. If you just keep at it, your sentences and words seem to figure themselves out. :)

  3. I agree with professor bradford! I think your concerns are baseless. but I totally feel the same a lot of the time. I get intimidated by my classmates and compare their strengths to my weaknesses. In reality, all we can do is enjoy the process of writing and work on improving our craft. Silence your inner critic and keep doing what you are doing!

  4. i want to read a blog post about your "Jesus Adventure!"
