Yeah, I said I might not update frequently but not for this long. I’ve been working on finishing up my novel which has taken up the majority of my free time when not procrastinating. Ideally, I would like to finish it before I turn 19, which is a month from now. There’s really no excuse to me not posting other than me being lazy as hell and figuring out what topics to blog about.
Since I’ve named this blog BridgeMoney writes things, I think talking about why I write might be a good idea. I don’t really write for recognition, or for people to read my work. I think I just want to put my life experience to good use, rather than wasting away my time at school or playing video games. (Not that I don’t care about school anymore, I’m still at least trying to do well.)
My writing is largely personal, I don’t know any other way to make it without being inauthentic. I write about mostly contemporary settings with characters and plots inspired by my own experience as a high schooler, which is what mainly inspired the project I’m working on now. I try really hard not to come across as some emo teenager who’s overly melodramatic and sentimental, although those are the stories I gravitate towards reading.
That’s also one of my biggest pet peeves: when people completely dismiss YA books and stories for teenagers as immature and lesser than media intended for adults. I’ll do a whole write up explaining my love of the YA genre soon. In the meantime, I just wanted to write an update showing that I haven’t died and I will absolutely continue this blog in the future.
