The name Amelia means “industrious” and “fertile.” These are two very nice qualities to have. I like to think that I am living up to my given name in both respects, although I do not yet know how well qualified I am in the second part. I would certainly admit that I consider myself a rather “industrious” sort, as I never stop writing. For all the good it might do me, at least I am consistent and diligent with my industry.
My middle name, Grace, may not be so well-deserved on my part. I do not consider myself particularly graceful. Although, my friends would agree that I do have a certain unusual sort of grace in the realm of being a rather fine conversationalist. Come to think of it, I have quite a few individuals in my circles that call themselves my friend. I like to think of them as good acquaintances. A true friend is hard to find, and so I try not to be too quick to truly label any one certain somebody a friend until I am truly certain that he or she deserves the high praise of such a mantle.
Some people are of the belief that I write strangely. I don’t know how else it is to properly go about my craft. I am mindful of grammar and sentence structure. While I take my artistic license with language every once and awhile, I don’t think there’s anything technically wrong with anything that I right. But my style is, I will admit, a bit out of the ordinary in our day and age. I don’t plan on changing it, though. It is my voice, and I like it just fine.
I am Amelia Grace Lockhart, and I approve this message.
I wrote something sort of like this on a personal blog back in 2011. I have no idea if it’s still published.
