Hello! Welcome to Allyson Writes.
My name is Allyson Curtis and I’m looking to make a career in writing. My dream career would be in the Publishing industry, and some kind of document design career would make an ideal secondary career. I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a BA in Professional Writing in Allendale, Mich., not far from my hometown, Holland, Mich.
I started this blog back in my Introductory Professional Writing class four years ago as part of a blogging assignment. I thought about letting the blog die out, even deleting my account. I didn’t really see any value in keeping this blog going, because the main purpose of the blog had such a narrow purpose. I only maintained it for the sake of a grade at first. Sadly, with time my classmates who were following as a part of the class blog project fell away. I felt like I had no purpose in keeping up this blog.
Two years later, I decided to revive this blog. I haven’t really come to the place where I want to take it down.I hope that day never comes. National Novel Writing Month, and writing, is something I believe in. I’ve decided that as long as I have this site here, I’m going to write about writing and the creative writing process as long as I possibly can.
