My name is Amie. I am 21 and I am a senior at the University of San Francisco majoring in English(with a writing emphasis), minoring in Journalism, and doing a dual degree in Education (dual as in allows me to complete a year of my graduate education as I also work on my undergraduate degree). I moved to San Francisco from Phoenix, Arizona three years ago, and being in the city has not only transformed me from a caterpillar to a butterfly, but it has also made me more excited about my writing with the plethora of inspiration and opportunities that resides in every crack and crevice of the 7 x 7 gem.
I first discovered my passion for writing in second grade, at the young age of eight, when I wrote my first story, “How the Bat Got its Wings.” I have been writing ever since, and I love it. And, when you love something, you want to show it to, and share it with, the world. So, this is why I am here. To expose my writing and to share it with those staring into their screens around the world. By the way, what I post is my writing. And all of the pictures I post are my pictures I have taken because I want my blog to be completely me. It is from my brain, my experiences, my dreams, my eyes, and my life. And, they are all true stories and dreams I have had, except for the fiction, but fiction is in a way a part of us as well even though us dark writers do not want to admit it all the time. Ha. But, I am very proud of my writing and in love with writing. We have been married for most of my life. The topics have changed from bats getting their wings by helping with the groceries to deeper and current things like mental illness, blackness, gore, and more. Like me, my writing has also gone through metamorphosis.
