Most of you know me as a book blogger and occasional fangirl. What you may not know is that I’m also a creative writing major and aspiring novelist. I won’t lie, it’s been difficult finding the time to write, what with all the things that have happened in the last eight months:
– moving to Toronto from the Philippines
– finding a job
– establishing this blog
– reading everything I missed out on during senior year of university
– being a good daughter and sister, etc.
I love writing, and I’ve missed it. Yes, including the deadlines.
That’s where Camp Wordsmith comes in! For the next 50 weeks, Christa (Hooked on Books), Jen (Almost Grown Up) and I will be posting about our writing adventures. We’ll be checking in every Saturday with our word counts and story updates, as well as discussions on craft and inspiration. If all goes well, we may even have novels ready for revisions and beta readers by the end of the year!
We hope you’ll stop by and join us next Saturday for the first official Camp Check-In! To inspire you, one of my favourite quotes from Sara Maitland’s “Bird Woman Learns to Fly,” in a banner made by my lovely friend Alicia:
