I went to school to be a “creative and professional” writer– both for my bachelors and MFA– but I drained all of my creative juices to finish my masters thesis on time. As I put my pen down for a break, inspiration completely atrophied. I became a writing teacher and I found meaning through teaching writing rather than the process of writing.
However…when I was in Japan, I LOVED writing about my experiences abroad as a teacher and traveler– everything was new, exciting, strange, magical, daring, and refreshing. Welcome back, Becca’s creativity.
Though I’m still not ready to share my fiction with the world, here is some nonfiction I`ve published over the years, as well as one small poem about a big tree.
