I've got all these ideas. Dreams. Goals. Things to tell. 

So I write. 

I have a voice that I need to exercise, a voice that I want to use to knife into the streaming flow of chatter that makes up our world today. I want to bring some clarity to the white noise, the static. Not to overpower other voices, but to be heard alongside them. 

So I write. 

I have stories to tell, and I believe that there is power in story. People respond to stories in ways that they can't (or won't) respond to anything else. People remember stories, emulate stories, are changed by stories, crave stories. And we live them, too. 

So I write. 

I have a lot of reasons to write, and my intention for this blog is to use my words positively, to encourage and inspire. I'm no master of poetry or prose, but I do know that I'm capable of using my words for good.

Oh, right! Who am I, anyway?

I'm Alicyn (it's like Alison, but not). I write stories (novels are my goal, but I write short stories and poetry too). I also play the violin, (and yes, fiddle too), and I like to make art, laugh really hard, be alone but not lonely, and find joy in the little things. I'm currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in Creative Writing. 

Thanks for checking out my blog, and I hope you're having a fantastic day!
