About

I sit in a cube all day, hopeful to overhear interesting tid bits of people’s lives to weave into a story someday. Whenever something interesting catches my ear, I obscurely take out my secret notebook and write down what I hear. 

I’ve always enjoyed writing and wholeheartedly wish I could spend my days writing my stories and crafting my novels.

But because I have a lot going on like the rest of the world, and a regular full time job during the week, I’ve found it’s difficult to keep up with writing on a daily, weekly, or even monthly basis.

So I’m hoping this space can become a sort of exploration for me and help me keep on track while figuring out what the writing life is like and what it means to be so attracted to the written word.

About Me

Not only do I hold a BA in English, but I also have a Certificate in Paralegal Studies. I do consider myself a writer, but writing won’t pay my student loan debt and neither will being jobless while I sit at home and write and maybe get a book published. So, for now, I work in a cube 5 days a week at an insurance company while I work on writing in the meantime.

A little more about me personally… I like to knit things that range from hats to scarves to partially made socks. Baking cookies soothes me. I get a little teary when I go into a large antique store. I enjoy very spicy food; my favorite type of spicy is Mexican food spicy. And lastly, this blog would not be complete without my declaration of how much I love writing and, of course, reading books!

I reside in Connecticut with my husband and our loving but boisterous pug named Phineas. 

Happy Writing,
Jen

    That blasted student loan debt….Luckily I’m still in school and don’t have to start paying on it yet, but that day is coming. 😦
    But on happier subjects…I think your about page looks great! It really gives a sense of who you are. I love your dog too! 🙂
