My name is Nick Christian. I’m 30 and just starting to figure out what I want to do with my life: I want to teach. And write. And coach football. And maybe do a little journalist work. And make movies.
… I guess I still have some things to figure out.
Well, what can you know about me? I’ve got a couple of degrees (finally). At the beginning of 2017 I received my M.A. in Creative Writing and English with a screenwriting concentration from Southern New Hampshire University, the same school I got my B.A. at in 2015. During my M.A. time I was accepted into the English honor society Sigma Tau Delta, which I’m still kind of stoked about.
Now, what can you expect from this blog? A whole mess of things really. I used to write a lot of poetry (That’ll probably happen more during NaPoWriMo seasons), I love sports – New England is title town, I occasionally find myself doing a movie/tv review, and lately I find myself trying to focus on screenwriting.
I love writing. I actually went to college for a business degree, but that got old quick. Writing has always been the perfect outlet for me to say what I think, feel what I feel and figure out what I need to figure out. Hopefully I can make a career out of it.
Speaking of which, I need to figure out a career. Journalism seems like an easy option. But working in publishing is something that has intrigued me more and more recently. I could also see myself being happy working in some sort of social media marketing capacity, that could be fun. Plus there is always the dream of being a screenwriter. In all honesty, I just want to find a project I can feel passionate about.
There also may be the random photo gallery or two. Sometimes I love leaving early in the morning and documenting my day in photos.
Hmm, what else? Sometimes I delight in old literature. I love the Elizabethan period (namely Shakespeare), the British Romantic era (Wordsworth, Keats, Byron), and pretty much anything from 1920-1950. The sixties were also pretty cool. Let’s just say I like books.
I have a couple of Social Media projects and profiles:
There is Remembering Homicide Victims. A project I have worked on for more than three years now (wow, time does fly). Check it out.
Then there is the Facebook page for this little blog of mine.
And of course there is Twitter;
I also have a Tumblr, but that just posts whatever I do on here.
This feels like a natural ending point for the time being. Please, stop by and say hi. Leave a link to your blog!
