Welcome to my first blog! And thank you for visiting! I hope you will enjoy reading this, and those that follow (I would really appreciated feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org). Please do check back regularly.
So, a bit about me… I am over 21, and, right now, that’s the best you are going to get. I am female and I live with four cats. More correctly, I live with them, to do their bidding. (Cat owners will understand.) I am also a qualified HR Professional (FCIPD for those in that world) and a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute. My full-time job (I still have one at the moment) is in that world. I have also dabbled in (and when I say “dabbled,” I mean “qualified in” – it was a moment in time – ) some beauty courses and complementary therapies. (Well, a girl’s got to try to make a bit of extra money somehow!) Which means that I can read my book and paint your toenails while giving you Reiki. (Joke! I may be a woman but I am REALLY bad at multi-tasking.)
I have always had a passion for reading. I got it from my father, he was a great reader. (Strangely, my Mum didn’t read a book until she was 40. Honestly!)
So, I like reading and I love the whole process of writing. As an undergraduate student, I wrote so many notes, I must have felled all the Norwegian coniferous forests single-handed. But writing student notes only satisfied the parts of me that physically wrote, there was no creativity. Although it did help me recall details for the exams.
I didn’t ever think of myself as creative, but when I discovered the internet and learned how to “surf,” I found a number of creative writing courses. One day, I must have requested information, because one of the companies started writing to me, and, one day, I signed up for the course. The rest, as they say, is history.
I am still studying my course, and loving it. My goal is to write books and articles and blogs that everyone will love. The blogs won’t all be about me, this is just an intro. Let’s see where the music takes us…
Love and light
