I started this blog as a writing exercise. My academic background meant that many of my writing projects are trapped in numerous revision cycles. This blog will post my first drafts of my thoughts on my life or on any literature that I am reading. It will be difficult for me to hit publish after just one revision but that is the plan. I hope you will overlook any of my errors and challenge me on any of these topics. I hope this will be an enjoyable memoir as I progress towards a fun and readable writing voice.
