Greetings! My name is Alyssa Grace Moore. Welcome to my blog!

This blog will take you on a journey through the creative writing process—the pitfalls, the writers blocks, the blocks on your writers blocks, and ultimately how to achieve the dream of becoming a better writer, and hopefully help you on your way to publishing your own novel!

To give you a little bit of background on myself, I graduated with my Master’s of English (M.A.) in Spring 2016, and my Bachelors of English (B.A.) in Spring 2013, with a cognate in creative writing.

I knew I wanted to be a writer in first grade when I boldly stomped over to Mrs. Martin with my determined, eight-year-old feet, and told her I wanted to be a poet.

Her response? An inspiring, “Poets don’t make very much money.”

And thus the dream was born.

Pretty good origin story, right?

Long story short, I am a creative soul with many creative interests: dancing, singing, acting, occasional painting, costuming, etc. The thing is, however, that writing is my creative passion and my calling.

I am currently working on my first novel. I can’t give too much away, but if I said the words “Norse mythology” and “Loki,” they might give you a pretty exciting place to start. 😉 (More info to come in future posts!)

The point of this blog is to inspire you in your own writing process. Writing is a solitary activity, therefore it is important to know that you are not alone in the process, even when sitting at home alone tearing your hair out over the perfect word or comma placement.

In addition to Writing Tip Wednesdays, I hope to create Travel Friday posts in which each Friday you will be greeted with a lovely little travel essay that will inspire you to go have an adventure of your own—think of it like your creative non-fiction cup of coffee! I hope to also discuss some of my more academic thoughts on topics like literary theory and its application not only in writing, but in current events around the world.

These are the types of things you can expect from this blog, and as I have new ideas, I will update you all!

Thank you for stopping by. It was lovely to chat with you, and I hope to see you again soon.

With Grace,

~Alyssa Grace Moore
