I feel overwhelmed 80% of the time. I am clumsy, I sport a new stain on my shirt on the daily, and I am known to forget, misplace and straight up lose all of my possessions. However, when I sit down and put pen to paper or fingers to a keyboard, I’m pretty damn eloquent. Writing is one of the only times when my mind feels at ease, when the anxious thoughts quiet from an uproar to a rumble, and I can actively explore, compartmentalize, and contemplate. Writing is my lungs letting go of the breath I forgot I was holding, my shoulders dropping to relieve the tension I had built up, and my back muscles releasing under a hot stream of water. It is my sanity, my sanctuary.
To honor this passion and to continue to seek relief from my anxiety and depression,I have finally decided to build some discipline when it comes to my practice. I write on topics ranging from my experience as a Latina growing up in a multicultural household, my unwavering love for my husband, my constant journey dealing with my mental health issues, and most recently some works of fiction!
I hope to connect with other writers and grow my network of people who find solace through their words. I would love advice and help refining and revising my work so please reach out if you have any ideas, suggestions or just want to chat! I would love to eventually be a published and a full time author. This is the way I explore and break down my world.
