Two Lessons

A friend of mine recently asked if I would write something for her to use to perform for a scholarship pageant, and said that it could be centered around identity. So after finishing one poem, I wrote a whole different one. Sometimes it doesn't come out right the first time.

A Polaroid Past

I'm currently working on a new poem this week, but in the meantime, I thought I'd share something I wrote last year in my creative writing class! We were supposed to pick a picture to write about, so I found a couple of polaroids of my parents.This was one of my favorites. Let me know what you think!

This is a piece I wrote on a person I've met, but never saw outside of my workplace. Enjoy!

Why I Write

I think to help start the whole blogging thing, I'll explain why I write. This semester I'm taking an independent study with my former sophomore English/creative writing teacher, and basically I'm just going to try to write as much as I can until the end of the year. This was the first piece I started off with.

First Post Ever And I Can't Even Think Of A Creative Title

If ever there was a right time to start writing, I would probably never begin. So, instead of waiting for a correct time and place, I figure wasting precious time while I'm at work is always a good way to start off a blog.

My name is Caitlin, and I have no idea what I'm doing.
