This morning as I write my first blog post, I am feeling like Veronica Roth’s character Tris in the Divergent book series (and now movie) as she survives a multi-story leap into a giant net.
I am not normally a jumper . . . I am an observer of jumpers, more likely to read their stories than be the story. That’s why I am such a huge reader. In a good year I can log 100 titles and rarely read less than 80. That can seem a little freaky to some people, but if you love books like I do, you completely understand this.
I love being transported into a different world an author has created for us. I can’t remember NOT loving this. As a kid, I would bring home a stack of library books or my latest Scholastic book order and read straight through the weekend, devouring one story after another.
My love of writing came a few years later and my ability to claim the title of WRITER came even later.
I remember the day I finally said out loud to someone, “I am a writer.” It felt exceptionally good to take that leap.
And it feels pretty darn awesome to take this jump today.
