This is an exciting week! First, I’m on spring break this week and that’s always a cause for celebration! Secondly, I’ve officially been blogging for one year this week! Whoo-hoo!
I have to say I was a little intimidated when I first decided to start this blog. I’d never done anything like this before and I wasn’t sure if I could sustain it. However, I’m really happy that I did it. This site has basically become my writing journal (…that the entire world can potential read). I guess that’s a little weird, but it works. It’s really fun to look back at old posts and remember some of the projects I've worked on and experiences I’ve had. It’s easy to forget things as time marches on and I love that I can always look back and reminisce about some of my writing “firsts.”
Given how well this first year has worked out, I have no plans to stop. In fact, that leads me to the third exciting event this week…my long awaited trip to the Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA) writing retreat!!! Yay—I can’t wait!
This will be my first time visiting Vermont College and I already know it’s going to be an amazing trip. I’m spending the first few days with a good friend close by and we’re going to have a little informal writing retreat of our own. Then we're off to Vermont to visit with my aunt and uncle and then a jam-packed weekend of speakers, critique groups, and writing time.
I always cherish my writing time and I hope to make the most of these next few days. I’ll definitely check back afterwards and give a full write-up!
Here’s to my one-year blogiversary and a wonderful way to start year two!
