Last year, I celebrated ten years of writing. Yes, I’ve been on this journey a while. I had written before 2011 but that year was when I became serious about honing my craft. I became passionate about publishing my writings and joined Figment (ha, Figment! I will always miss what you were).
The Figment Era
It was on Figment that I compiled my first chapbook, my first novella, my first fan fiction collection. It was on Figment that I started Doctrine, my first full length manuscript and received my first critique.
So, you see why I start my count in 2011.
It was during my Figment era that I edited Doctrine, submitted it, and got my first few rejections. As Figment came to a close, so did the time I had to write but never my dedication.
I was baffled and more than a little scared about what teenaged me thought.
