Welcome to Peace of Writing,
My name is Veronica and I run this little blog. I live in the Orlando, FL area but I’ve lived all over the world thanks to my parents’ careers in the State Department. Seeing the world at a young age instilled in a me a deep love of traveling, food, culture, and above all, writing. After graduating from the University of South Florida with a B.A. in Mass Communications, I came to Orlando where I ended up finding a career in marketing. I currently work as a content marketing specialist doing search engine optimization, copywriting and social media. It may not sound all that interesting, but I really love what I do.

Back in 2012, when I was first getting into marketing, I decided to create a blog to help me become a more confident, creative writer. I came up with the name “Peace of Writing” because writing has always brought me a sense of peace that few things in my life has ever been able to. Sharing my writing, on the other hand, didn’t bring me so much peace. That’s until I realized that it was better to be true to myself than perfect, and not let fear of judgement get in my way. I hope people enjoy this blog, but if not, that’s ok too. I know that the only way I can grow as a writer, even as a person, is to be open to what the world thinks of my work, learn from my mistakes, and strive to be better than who I was yesterday.
