Because sometimes everyone needs a starting point….

Everyone needs a starting point. Here is yours

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed” -Ernest Hemingway

“Existing: Because without existing what would there be to bleed about?” – S. Hollisway

The S is for short for Shae. The second part pays homage to the man whose been my father for most of my adult life (Mr. Hollis) and one of my writing inspirations, Ernest Hemingway.

My Universe Then

I’ve never had the gift of gab or introducing myself. I never had the ability to strike up a conversation with ease and feel that comfortability that some others may get. I’ve never been good at putting myself out there. This is one of the reasons I choose to stand in the shadows. I’m sure the bio will change as I grow as a writer, but for now, this is my universe as see it.

When I was a child, foolish and naive, I dreamed of leaving my mark on the world. I dreamed of getting what I could out the Earth and sucking it dry. At 23, my main focus is wondering what kind of legacy I will leave on the ones I love and the ones who love me. I learned in life that it’s not about what you can get from the world but about the community you build and the lives you affect.

My Universe Now

When I look at my son, I want to give him the world. I want him to know that he is responsible for not only his life but for all the lives he touches. I want him to know that he matters. I want to tell him all the things I wish I knew as a child and give him the security that I didn’t have. I want to prepare him for the joys and the cruelties that come with the world. I want him to thrive. But I know that for him to, I have to practice what I preach and learn to thrive as well.

As I branch into entrepreneurship in various avenues, I always come back to writing because it centers me.   I believe that writing helps me thrive. I believe it helps me continue breathing. I believe that it’s my legacy.

That’s all I have for now.
