about christy miles

Someone asked me once if I got paid to write this blog. I said no. She looked at me like I was crazy. I looked at her the same way.

When I was five years old, I knew I wanted to be a writer. When I was nine, I had a vision for my life: I wanted to write things that made people think. Today, I would only add one word to that vision: I want to write things that make people think differently.

I write about things I care and feel deeply about. I share my stories when I feel they may be helpful and when they are ready to be told, so I don’t have a regular posting schedule or “content calendar.” Although I tend to post most often on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings.

Thank you for spending time with my words. 🙂

  1. Thinking deeply is wonderful. I often think of a phrase from Harry Potter when Harry asks Dumbledore if what he is experiencing is real, or just happening in his head. Dumbledore replies: “Of course it’s just happening in your head, Harry; but why does that mean it’s not real?”
