I am a fierce lover of technology. I spend a significant amount of time on my laptop each day browsing social media, researching for my current literary project, engaging in homework for my classes, including writing blogs like this for Mile Marker Review. I play video games on my Xbox One and Nintendo 3DS, one of my favorite hobbies. I even read books and stories on my tablet, immersing myself in the fictional worlds I love. But sometimes technology can be my creative downfall.

Over the past two semesters of my first year of college, I have taken four creative writing classes. Each one has helped me in various ways. If you want to write even if it's just for fun, I recommend finding one that suits you and pursuing it. They are very helpful and you will learn a lot. The only thing you need is a want to write to pass.

Stories have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Memories of my mom reading to me are some of my most cherished. Being swept away to adventures that took form in my mind was, and is, my favorite form of magic. At five years old I came to the moment that is burned into my mind. Finally, I was to learn how to translate the black and white symbols into words. Slowly those symbols began to make sense, until I could read the stories I so loved.

What is creativity? We all have a general idea about it but it's one of those words that just have so much meaning that it is hard to define but this article explains it pretty well. I would try to explain creativity in my own words but that would take forever and confuse you, so just read this instead.

Do you prefer to read a physical book or an E-book? I personally have read from both and prefer to read long books (typically over 400 pages) on my Kindle but read shorter books (under 400 pages) in a paperback. Although I do enjoy reading with the lights off and with a Kindle or Nook or whatever you prefer, that is possible. I can snuggle up under a blanket and enjoy a nice read.
