Welcome to Peace of Writing!
My name is Veronica and I run this little blog. I live in central Florida 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 me a deep love of travel, food, culture, and above all, writing. After I graduated in 2011 from the University of South Florida with a B.A. in Mass Communications, I came to Orlando where I got my first taste of marketing and sparked a passion for copywriting. I currently work as a content marketing specialist for a large printing company doing search engine optimization, copywriting, social media, and pay-per-click advertising.
“Whether or not you write well, write bravely.” – Bill Stout
Back in early 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 have 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 judgment 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.
