About Me


Hello and welcome to my blog! I’m Daesse Grimes, a twenty three year old writer and grad student from the sweet clean streets of small town Connecticut. Last year I earned my bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing and am returning to school this fall to pursue my MFA in Fiction.

I love to hula hoop and craft although I’m much better at the former than the latter. My dream world is one where I am ceaselessly romping through meadows or splashing away at the beach; I am trying to convince my friends I am a woodland elf.

I’d love for the things I have to say to change someone’s life one day, and the only way that can happen

is for me to take the first step, and you, hopefully, to follow along.

Thanks for stopping by,

Daesse @TheGrimyBlues
