Hey there, readers and writers! Welcome to my first ever blog post!
This is just going to be a quick introduction and an explanation of what my plans are here.
My name is Jessica, but pretty much everyone calls me Jess. I'm 23 years old, an author, and I critique manuscripts for a living. Crazy to think I'm out here working my dream job when just a little over a year ago I was an assistant manager at my local vape shop, and before that, I was a sales manager with Mattress Firm and worked in a restaurant for four years.
It has been such an insane journey getting to where I'm at today, but I wouldn't change it for anything. I've connected with so many amazing people along the way and have grown as a person and a writer. And this is only the beginning!
With this blog, I plan to share bits of my life and any writing/publishing advice I have as well as lift up other creatives. Authors, artists, editors, musicians—doesn't matter, I want this to be a place for you, too! Every other Friday, you'll see a guest blog post from another creative, where you can learn about what they do, their process, or whatever advice they have to offer. This is a place for creativity and support.

Thank you so much to all of you who have supported me so far in this journey, and for those I have yet to meet, I look forward to connecting with you. <3
