I have the worst timing.
My interest or excitement is only ever peaked when the accomplishment of said thing I’m excited about is questionable.
Move to a new city and start over? Sure, but what about your mom’s health?
Get out there and get involved in activities? You could, but what about grad school?
Join a gym? Silly, you work late all the time, when is the gym happening?
And yet..here I am. Starting ashleyraeturner.com despite also applying for graduate school, working a demanding full time job where I write ALL DAY (which I love), looking for apartments and planning a potential move across state lines for my mother. I am committing to writing more than I do on a daily basis, to finding fresh and witty ways to talk about my true loves (or trying to at least) and putting my name behind it.
In a world where personal branding is everything I’m aware this isn’t a little undertaking. I know I have to commit, to be consistent, to care — not exactly my wheelhouse honestly. But at a certain point you have to say, why not?
I hate “intro” posts but I guess this is mine. Here we go.

Yes!!! The introduction for the woman who needs no introduction. It was great reading your work in the Omaha Star and now I get to see you in your own platform. Really excited to say the least!
Ahh you just made my heart so full JaKeen. People like you are going to motivate me to stay consistent!
I have to thank you for the efforts you’ve put
in penning this website. I’m hoping to check out the same high-grade content by you in the future as well.
In truth, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my own, personal
website now 😉
