(My second meme ever. I’m on a roll!)
So…why did I start this blog? Eight months ago my husband and I decided close up house and shop and life, all the while yelling “I’M GOING ON AN ADVENTURE!” Seriously, this was said many, many times. My almost twin brother even wrote a going away speech for me based on it. I’ve had many adventures so far, from the plethora of malls and hawker centres (think really cheap food courts with…interesting food) in Singapore, to Viet Nam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand.
BUT my biggest adventure has been a writing adventure.
I’ve spent the last eight months pouring all I have into writing my current novel, then revising and editing and re-writing—a labor of love and pain and sweat and tears and lost sleep that leaves you utterly drained (I SWEAR I rarely rhyme!). I want to write fun (and short!) things outside of a novel, about the struggles and (occasional) joy of a writer’s life. I want share my work with the world. I’m also kind of a random person and my head is often full of thoughts that I’d like to unleash on the unsuspecting internet every once and a while. Lately these thoughts have been around living in the singularly unique Singapore and things I miss from home (Madison, Wisconsin).
Mostly I want to write randomness for fun and hopefully connect with other writers and photographers and travelers and crazy, random people such as myself.
