I'm Melissa and I'm a writer in process or a progressing writer. I started writing poetry first. I was invited to start contributing to Helium by my cousin and with half a heart and little knowledge I signed up.
Wow, I learned right off I didn't know much about poetry, let alone writing professionally. However with the help of many patient writers, I'm proud to say I've evolved to being a so so writer and not so bad writer of poetry.
I'm still in the learning process, but I am branching out towards freelance writing. I do have a passion for the pen and the flair of emotion which comes from being a temperamental poet.
The journey is a singular one, as each person evolves differently in their writing capabilities. Yet, there is something to be said about the unity that comes from being around others who share your joys and passions for writing.
Where I'm heading right now is still up for debate, but hopefully it will always involve writing and eventually something far greater in the field of poetry.
