It’s hard for me to wholeheartedly commit to the “About” section of this journal, because this is a blog about me.
And I am very much a work in progress.
So what does one say then, to complete the task at hand so that the WordPress autotext is replaced, without defining a concrete reason for this writing space?

“As a word enthusiast, I am also an advocate of the dictionary.

This is a blog for the nine-to-fivers, the parents, the workaholics, the in-betweeners, the young married couples, the dreamers, the doers, the trailblazers. Whether you are in a rut or focused on getting people out of them, this is a space for you., because I am currently feeling like a little of both these days, and through writing, my hope is to elevate my passions to create the best version of myself.
My first journal entry posed the question, “When was the last time you did something that made the hair on the back of your neck rise?” and I am still chasing after that very notion. Follow me in my quest to add punctuation to the end of each splendid sentence of my story-
Together, let us fill these pages, and your own, with exclamation points, question marks, semi-colons, and more. Let us edit this work in progress to reflect something that we can be proud of.
