Hi everyone. I’m just going to talk today a little bit about the importance of keeping a journal if you want to be a writer.

People are just more open about sharing stuff now online than back in the days when I kept a journal and it was meant to be for me. Although I did as part of a class keep a journal, which is why I’m, I’m suggesting doing it. It’s kind of like, okay, I learned from doing it and you can learn from doing it too. But I think the reason I wanted to talk about this also, I had the opportunity to basically do an informational interview with two students at the University of Maryland.

Something I’ve done before—anyway, I made it alive and (mostly) well.
