The New York Diaries: My Journey

Ann’s post, She Should Write, in part encouraged me to pursue my dream of living in New York and becoming a writer.

A little over a year ago, I made the move. I packed my car and transferred my job to New York, but things didn’t go as planned. I found myself months later without a place to live, no access to my car, no money and in a city full a strangers.

I had to rely on the kindness of friends that I had made here for food and a place to live. Things got rough, and I was super homesick for the place where everyone knew me.

Things have vastly improved now, and I am posting about my experiences on my blog, from the time I arrived, to when I resorted to dancing at bars for cash, to now: working two jobs and writing every chance I can.
