It took a long time for me to consider myself a writer. I still struggle with saying it. I started writing at a young age to work through feelings I didn’t dare tell anyone. I learned that once you start writing, it becomes a part of you. It’s something you always go back to whenever you are overwhelmed with certain emotions. People don’t always listen to your words, but the paper always listens to the pen.

About the Author:

Ashley Jane is a former Inmate Substance Abuse Counselor who now moves between consulting, book editing, and computer support. She still enjoys research, and you’ll often find her alternating between reading poetry books and psychological studies. While from the South, her heart still lives in Washington DC (or the Caribbean.) She loves music concerts and true crime dramas. She lives with her husband and their one child, a rescue cat named Shadow Monkey. While she began writing at a young age, itΒ took a long time for her to call herself a writer. She is currently working on her first poetry book, which will be out later this year.

  1. What wonderful page! Thank you for inspiring me in many ways. I went through something so devastating and wondered how I would cope. I find myself writing, writing, writing. Had I not gone through my experience I don’t think I would have started this journey!

    1. Thank you for you kind words. I’m honored that you like my writing. I’ve found writing to be a wonderful outlet for all those things that shouldn’t be kept bottled up inside. There is definite power in putting it to the page. I’m so glad that writing helps you too. πŸ’™


  2. I too began writing at a very young age and agree, once words enter your soul, the passion they bring rarely dissipates. I love how you say the paper always listens to the pen! πŸ™‚

    1. I think sometimes it’s just easier to write. Certainly, it’s healthier than letting it sit there. Thank you so much for your kind words!
