Writing Drea

My name is Drea and sometimes I have a hard time calling myself a writer because I feel like I’m just getting started. There is so much I need to learn and experiment with… but I am still a writer.

Keep writing, and take pride in your work, some people aren’t going to like it, but trust me, you’re not crazy, there is definitely a lot of people who WILL WANT TO READ IT. And they might actually seriously be entertained by it, amused by it, excited by it, even changed by it. In my opinion, even if just one other person took something away from what you wrote, then you did a good thing. Or even if no one does, do you? Keep writing and never stop
