Hello, I am Alexandra Wolfsbane, and no, that is not my real name.
As I have pondered much about my life as a writer, and what it will be like when I am living my adult life out on my own, I have constantly debated whether I should put myself out there. I have always wanted people to be inspired by my art, whether it be in word or visual form, but I have never been sure if it should be acknowledged in reference to me. There is a sort of mystery and excitement that I have always found in a pen name, and the room it gives to develop a personal identity is marvelous.
Now, I am not hiding. I am not lying.
I am allowing myself to discover myself through a new way. I am giving myself a new opportunity to be who I really want to be. Someday, I hope that I can be a name in the writing community that people refer to with respect and admiration. I am no secret. A lot of my friends will probably know who I am. I am fine with that. But there is nothing wrong with opening yourself up creatively with complete freedom and adventure. This is what Alexandra means to me. It is another part of me that I hope can be embraced, as I am learning to embrace myself. She is the artist in me.
I encourage everyone to do the same, whether it be in this way, or another. Find that part of you that you really want the world to discover, and share it. Learn to love it. There are so many ways in which you can do that.
I hope that sharing my insights with you can lead to you sharing yours with others. Sharing absolutely is caring. Think about how it really impacts the world. It is in a bigger way than you think.
Feel free to ask me any questions! I will be happy to answer them. In the meantime, take a look at what more I have to share.
Apart from this blog, I also write stories in my free time. Feel free to check them out and give them a read! I only have two stories published at the moment, which are not completed. One of them is co-written with a friend of mine.
Don’t be afraid to share yourself. You’ll inspire others to do the same.
