I really need to do something, I've realized: I need to put my writing out there. Submit it to a few online magazines. Send a poem I wrote to some different places as well. Write a few short stories (which is really hard for me... but I know I can do it), maybe that sort of thing. If I start collecting rejections now, then I'll be in good shape for later on. It suddenly seems important. I'm not sure how, but it does.
So I'll get to writing and I hope ya'll have a great week!
P.S. I opened a deviantART account under the name QueenAravis
