When you see a writer disappear from social media, what’s your first thought? Some may not notice. Others may wonder where they are—particularly if this writer has a prominent presence. These writers may be talking about tips, posting memes, or sharing their work regularly.
What does it mean to become a new writer daily? When I started writing, I was excited, invigorated, and terrified. The “newness” is what drove me to want to do better, learn more, and connect with other writers. I couldn’t wait to find new opportunities, hear about what others were doing, and find out about new techniques. I could taste the excitement. Some days it the experience sweet and others it was bitter.
