My name is Celaine Charles, and I am a want-to-be-writer… no scratch that. I am a writer. There is a certain power to words mixed with even a hint of inspiration. They stir up my insides until I give them freedom on a blank page, on a new document, or sometimes on the back of a receipt or napkin. I’ve finally given into this writing side of myself, and with it comes sharing. The idea of sharing pieces of myself with the world is a vulnerable place to be. So, I have begun this blog as a place to stand and gain my strength. I hope there are some writers out there who may feel similar sparks in their own lives, and who wish to join me on this journey.
