The Twentysomething Story

“To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.” Joseph Chilton Pearce

Once upon a time, I read in a bright white book with fluorescent orange font on the cover, that your ‘twenties’ is the ultimate “defining decade.” Not necessarily because you’re having the time of your life, but rather these tumultuous ten years are spent making decisions that stay with you well into your thirties, forties and fifties. (Wow. What pressure!)

Since leaving university, thoughts about my craft have been the subject of several life coaching sessions and contemplation which have led to mixed-feelings and unsettling doubt. However, I’ve divinely managed to reach the same conclusion every time: I am a writer. In love with personal pronouns and narrating stories (none more so than my own). I write about whatever captures my interest at the time because my thoughts are both erratic and unrelated, so expect a lot of first-person entwined with randomness and personality.

Twentysomething Me is where I write without judgement and explore our twenties with nothing but honesty and wit. Smile, crinkle your mouth with embarrassment or email me to ask: “Why on earth did you post that?!” – I’d be happy with either reaction.

If it sounds like a journey you’d like to join me on, I’ll be updating the site as often as possible  unless I just have absolutely nothing to say and in that case, I’ll let you know via Twitter or Facebook.
