I’m a writer.
Much as “the wand chooses the Wizard” in Harry Potter, Writing chose me.
Either that, or I was conditioned into it from a very young age.
I’m something of a romantic idealist, so I’ll go with the first, more poetic description.
Participating in a ‘Myers-Briggs Type Inventory’ workshop for my workplace a number of years ago, I observed that perhaps I am a “secret extrovert”. The MBTI definition of “extrovert” is basically “thinking aloud”. Instead of thinking aloud (which I do seem to do more of since I’ve had children: a topic for another time?), I write things down to clarify my thinking. Lists, Pros and Cons, Project Management by tracking progress and next steps in tables…pretty much anything I do is managed by writing about it in some form.
(But no, I’m not going to tell you which of those “types” my test results say I am. Far too much of an impression to recover from! ;p)
This blog will contain various posts about things that make enough of an impression on me to write about.
I’m a lifelong fan of books, movies, short stories and quality tv series, including sci-fi, fantasy, action, politics, mystery, family, romance, some comedy…so: pretty much most genres! You might notice some posts about those things.
In the interests of building community by encouraging people & boosting morale/ mental health, I have a Facebook page, not of my writing, but of exclusively positive memes and other people’s words and pictures:
Feel free to scroll through and see if there is anything that inspires you.
This blog, however, does not promise to be so focused on positivity. So, managing your expectations:
For “rainbows and unicorns” go to the Facebook page.
For general chatter, this blog is one of your sources.
Wishing you great enjoyment in reading, here and elsewhere.
