Welcome to my blog!
This blog is meant to be a bookish blog, about favorite books and authors, as well as about writing, bookish items, and other literary things.

So what inspires me to write about such subjects?
Well, I'm a huge nerd book person. For as long as I can remember I've loved to read, imagine, and write stories. I think classics are the absolute best. My favorite books are The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine l'Engle, and Crime and Punishment by Fydor Dostoevsky. I also love the Bible, but it feels strange to list it with my other favorites, classifying the perfect Word of God with fiction books that, though timeless, are flawed, written by flawed men. (Was that too many commas? :)
My dream is to be published (I'm 20,000 words into my first novel!) and to gain a Christie award in my life. I spend a lot of my time holed up in Walden, the 1.8m-by-2.4m writing studio that my parents bought for me in March. So follow me as I explore questions like: How do you create a perfect character?" " Is it acceptable to use "good" in response to "how are you" "Why are quotation marks so darn cute?" and "What was Dr. Suess's real name?"


  1. Yay! You're back! I love the look and feel of your new blog...

    Also, can we see a picture of Walden? Pretty please? With a cherry on top?

    P.S. I also totally love "The little Prince." Such an awesome book!

  2. I like everything about this comment :) And yes, I will do a post of Walden soon!

  3. Would someone please explain to me the brilliance of The little Prince? Only that I read it and was like, okay that's cute but not as brilliant as what I know all my friends and teachers go on about.
