For New Year’s I decided I was going to blog every day. Whether it was poetry, a short story, how things in my life were going.
But I didn’t.
On Jan 3rd, my step-father passed away after a battle with kidney cancer.
Since he got ill in August, a lot has happened: I turned 19; I started my second year of university; I wrote and published a novel; I became Deputy Editor of CCCU Her Campus, and much more.
Since he passed, I’ve published a poetry book in his honour, and am currently complying one about him. I’ve started a short stories collection, I’ve started seeing someone, I’ve written blog posts about my step-father, I’ve written a lot of poetry, I’ve been to his funeral, I’ve been going to work and to university throughout all of it.
But I didn’t blog every day.
He loved reading my work, so as a tribute to him, I will blog every day of February: about anything and everything, so he can read it from his laptop in the sky.
