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 master’s 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.
I’m still working on sharing my fiction with the world, but here is some nonfiction I`ve written over the years for various websites and online magazines, as well as one small poem about a big tree.
