The time has come to lay the fictional character of Sacha Hope to rest. I created the alias over six years ago, as a first year student at university. The alias allowed me to write more freely, since everyone at some point in their lives want to avoid judgement (especially from cringe-worthy writing....)
The alias allowed me to explore an untapped part of my character and in part contributed to both my personal and skills development. I think we all strive to leave something behind--especially authors, since we seem to be acutely aware of the fleetingness of time. The eternity of a moment versus the fleetingness of a decade being portrayed not only in writing, but in life all around us. So, it is in such an eternal moment that I close the book on Sacha Hope and embark on a new adventure.
