Thank you so much for visiting The Pensive Corner!
As a licensed professional counselor, I believe that there is immense overlap in counseling people and writing fiction. Sometimes they feel like one in the same, though with one you can only influence the story and with the other you are crafting it.
My aim in writing is to capture the brokenness that exists in all of us and display it with a sense of normalcy. There are no superhumans, and, while I understand to drive to conceal oneself, true healing doesn’t happen until you are fully seen.
My main intention for this blog is to chronicle my journey in becoming a professional fiction writer, but more than that, I hope to bring an empathtic perpective to the brokenness that pervades humanity. I will be posting snippets of my current works-in-progress as well my insights into the connections between therapy and creative writing.
Thanks for joining me!
