Hello dear readers,
I hope this post finds you well. I was notified today that it has been a year since I started this blog. It certainly has changed since I began both in it’s set up, but also in what I now hope to achieve in posting every Friday. Thank you to everyone who even glanced at this blog once, and thanks to all of you who are still following my posts.
I feel like I’ve found a small community where I can share my passions and ideas, and people who don’t mind hearing about them.
I don’t know about some of you, but I’m still a bit distraught over the death of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I have loved his work ever since I was introduced to him, and he will be sorely missed. I have been reading Of Love and Other Demons, and I just reminds me of the power of his writing. His writing is so clean and crisp, but there are always layers of depth and meaning. Salman Rushdie, another famous author who uses magical realism (the type of writing that Garcia Marquez was so famous for) said that, “he was the greatest of us all.”
If you’d like to read the article that Rushdie wrote, I’ve posted the link here.
I’m back to working on getting fully prepared for school, and I get more excited every day. I’ve known since a very young age that writing was my passion, and finally having the chance to make it part of a career is more than I could have hoped for. I’m going to work on getting more ideas on paper focusing on what I want to achieve by the end of this two years. I just can’t wait to get started!
Have a phenomenal Friday, dear readers!
