I have finally started ‘the blog’ as I call it in my head, although its real name is Wondering Wednesday. The first part, if you know me, is about my head always being up in the clouds wondering about this and that-much to my mothers chagrin. The second, Wednesday, is my childhood nickname due to a strong but tanner resemblance to the character Wednesday Addams and not being impressed with life even at the tender age of ten. It seemed an apt name for a writers blog. This is going to primarily focus on my writing and life; with throw ins about my photography site that will soon be up and running and also shout outs to Nerdy and Worthy, another blog here that I contribute to a couple times per week.
To start out, hello I’m Erica. I turned 30 this year and freaked out over it a bit. Less about the age and more the fact I feel as though I should have more accomplished by this point in my life. It’s more than the usual distress we all feel watching those thirteen year old’s win gold medals during the Olympics while we were busy at that age sleeping in as much as possible and figuring out how to get so-and-so to notice us. My panic more comes from the fact I feel as though I’ve somehow slept through my twenties and have just now woken up and realized everyone has passed me by in both personal and professional endeavors. I’m terribly behind and I am now rearranging my life and pretty much starting over. Writing and photography have become my main focuses and I’m hoping to make a living from them now. This blog is the first step towards that new life.
My posts will include my writing about my books, how I’m being inspired or perhaps not inspired at all to write them. Excerpts of new ideas I’ll be exploring and interesting research I come upon. I will have shout outs to my Nerd posts that will be reviews of various movies and TV shows that I watch. Follow me on twitter to see the live tweets (@quietlikeastorm). My friends and I are a lively and friendly bunch on there, so please join in. Updates about my photography with when and where I’ve taken a new set. Maybe even a sneak peak. There will be the more personal posts as well-the books I’m currently reading, food I’m making and crafts I’m trying not to mess up. There will be other bits and pieces of my life that will make it in too. I’m updating just about everything in my life and about myself and you, dear reader, will see every step of the new me emerging. Stayed tuned, things are going to get interesting.
