Welcome to the blog of Ms. Dakota!
I am a graduate student, soon to be teacher, and multi-genre writer who created this blog to release some of my unpublished work out into the world.
Do you enjoy reading short stories or poetry? In need of writing tips? Look no further!
Why Did You Make This Blog?
I made the decision to make this blog in January 2020. My intention when I first started was to release my unpublished work into the world. However, as I connected with other writers and bloggers via twitter, I realized writing tips/advice were needed within the writing community. I now offer writing & blogging tips as well which can be found HERE.
What Genres Do You Write?
This genre is my favorite to write. I use my personal experiences and those of my family members to create short stories. I kept a diary as a young girl and I wrote in a journal for most of my childhood. This is how I grew to love this genre.
I recently started writing poetry after I read the majority of the poetry section in Barnes & Noble. My inspiration comes from the following poets: Rupi Kaur, Lang Leav, Atticus, and Courtney Peppernell, to name a few.
I also use the basis of my experiences to create fictional stories. I want to explore this genre a bit more and hopefully, publish a short story anthology. One of my current works in progress is a work of fiction.
