“All you have is now.”
I was reading this wonderful book today, and it was during the course of reading that this thought plonked itself into my head. So when I realised that nobody knows how things might turn out tomorrow, and all each one of us has is “now”, I thought, “Why not give blogging a try?”
Writing has always been something that I’ve enjoyed despite not having mastered the skill. I have been drawn to reading and writing since childhood, I read my first ever “book” at the age of, maybe eight, an Enid Blyton, and went on to writing one-page-long-stories by the age of nine, and never really stopped. I’m aware that this isn’t much to boast about because people might usually start off at a much earlier age, but the idea that I wanted to put across was that I enjoy reading as much as writing, maybe a wee bit more.
I’ve always wanted to be able to read more about what’s “really” happening around the world. I mean, sure I’m quite interested in politics and how the world runs and stock markets (okay, maybe not so much of that), but there are people out there, who, maybe like me, have nothing much to do with all the free time on their hands during the summer, and just “need to know”, to “keep things interesting”, to maybe “learn or read about something totally new”, and that’s the sole reason behind this blog.
I’m an amateur as far as writing goes, especially when it comes to the social forum, but want to improve and read more.
I need to steer myself into a finding my “proper haunt” (okay that’s me quoting Heaney right there) and I assumed that if I get involved with this community, I might get some help. So I honestly don’t know what I’m going to be writing about (I’m sure not many people reached this far into this article, but those who did, I’m grateful), so please do bear with me. It’s my nature to write about all that affects me in any sort of way. I’m certainly not very humourous, so my feed won’t be very funny (sorry for that). This is honestly the first time I’m doing something like this and I hope that it won’t turn out to be my last.
So that’s a little about who I am, and for all the cliché points; I’m a cat person and I love drinking coffee.
Glad we met!
Hope to keep in touch!
