Whilst I always wrote or at least tried but this was kept a secret. I didn’t trust that the words in my head would make any sense on paper. Before I started this blog, it took me about a year of going up and down with the idea. As I said in the past, my psychologist gave me the push I needed making it part of my therapy.

I tried talking my feelings out but voicing what I was feeling was hard for me for two reasons, 1 I had a ton of dysphoria about my voice and 2 I couldn’t find the words to explain what I was experiencing to someone who only studied but never felt it. She suggested that I pick a topic I love and write about it. It’s no secret that I love books hence where my blog name came from. I promised myself that I would give blogging a go for one year.

I guess you know by now that it worked. I made friends, dealt with my anxiety, and my passion for writing came back. Near the end of 2019, I was pretty unhappy at my job, so I needed something to distract myself. Once I had a storyline, I had to figure how I wanted to write this thing. Poetry is my go-to format, and reading a few novels in verse and loved them. I said, why not give it a try. I told my idea to my friend, a better writer than me, and he encouraged it, and that is how Turning Paige came along.

    1. So thankful for that comment! In the last months my stats have been getting lower and I was starting to feel Blogging isn’t a place where I can belong

  1. Turning Paige is a great title, very clever 🙂
    My stats have gone down too lately, maybe it’s just the world adjusting a bit at the moment, as places open up and people get away from screens a bit. I’m hardly reading anything at all lately, other than have-to work stuff.
    Hang in there. I love your poetry posts best too.
