A NOT SO EASY PATH

With a design degree and few opportunities during a down time, writing became a natural direction despite my true passions. Through the process, I eagerly dove into editing, formatting, and designing book covers even though I had little knowledge of the industries, other than a few design programs.

Looking back, my first novels were a monumental mess as I spent years trying to acquire a writing style that complimented my thoughts. Although disliking social media greatly, I realized I had to find a way to display my work. Prior to writing, I loved giving up and moving on, but after two years in, I had become a full blown creative addict, and it bothers me immensely that I haven’t found professional happiness. Despite designing my own site, writing novels, and creating digital layouts – my personal favorite – I’m still the invisible waif who can’t translate. Without a charismatic personality or an eye-catching resume that resonates, I created Paperwaif as a place to share my work with other individuals who love to write and design.

Paperwaif has now become my life project, an obsession that grows with each page turn. If you love creative directions and want a place to escape the blues, you’re welcome to join in and share your ideas. If you need somewhere to turn to because you can’t relate to the interests of those around you, I truly understand – Loner Lane is my middle name. For years, I have been on an island by myself. No one likes what I do, nor cares, though sometimes that’s the greatest part. Interests and achievements are quickly dismissed because they are created from fiction and fantasy, but what a bland world this would be if we were all alike?
