The first issue of Niexter with my Unwritten Thoughts in it is out today! You can get it any any newspaper stand, plus some other places here and there.

Writing here has been something that I’ve fantasized about doing since I was little. I used to think that having my own column was just one of those distant dreams that could happen sometime in the future, but I never imagined that it would happen so soon. I’m proud to now be a part of such an inspiring publication as Niexter, and I’m elated to check it off of my list of lifetime goals.

Though blogging has been a platform that I’ve been using enthusiastically for quite some time, the printed medium has been something that I’ve admired and loved very much to read. Call me old-fashioned, but there really is something about flipping through pages with the smell of pine and ink that staring at screens and scrolling through multiple pages at a time while barely lifting a finger just can’t compare to.

I’m excited to start thinking of ideas to write in this space, and, of course, to actually write them. Most of the time, a person writes merely to express their emotions and write down their thoughts, but there’s always a rush about having work published that comes with the exhilarating idea that people will read it. While getting published certainly isn’t everything, it’s the goal that drives me forward at the end of a long day.

To give you an idea of what I’ll be writing here, I’ll have articles about a number of articles that spark an interest and some poems, along with the occasional short story. As I aspire to write more, especially in Niexter, I look forward to expressing some of my thoughts and letting my mind wander. This is where my unspoken thoughts will be written, and I hope that you’ll enjoy it as you read.
