My dad has mentioned this to me several times, that I need to get things published, but I was never really sure what to do and I never had any short stories I deemed good enough to send off to a magazine or something of the sort. While on a camping trip with my dad, my older brother, my step mom, and some family friends Dad and I got into a discussion of this very nature.
Eventually Dad suggested that I start a blog to help me get off my feet. It would give publishers something to look at when Googling the name Alyssa May White. And maybe through this I would find a story or two that I found worthy to send somewhere like Teen Inc. This blog is to be a stepping stone to my dreams. It will help me become known; show people that I'm here.
Despite my hopes to forge a career out of writing, it is first and foremost something I love. There's nothing I can think of that would make me happier. There's a certain integrity I want to uphold to the art of it as opposed to the industry. Love it; great. Hate it; to each their own. But I hope you can enjoy my writing almost as much as I enjoy creating it.
