The Journey Begins

WordPress chose this title and I think it is a fitting summary for my first blog post. My blogging journey begins, my aim here is to write a book. I know it seems like a huge ambition to go from blog posts to a full-fledged book, but I feel I need the practice I will get here before publishing my work.

I will be sharing snippets of my story as time goes on, before publishing my story as an e-book. Most likely available from Amazon or similar unless anyone has any other ideas. I will also be looking for a proofreader or several somewhere down the line.

When I say my story I do mean my personal story. Something rather traumatic happened to me a couple of years ago and I feel I need to write it down to get over it, to move on and bury the past. I also think sharing it could be helpful to some other people. To show that it is possible to survive and move on, coming out the other side stronger than before. Transformed in a strange way.

    Hey, Andrea,

    Welcome to WordPress! Thank for liking my short story. You’ve set set up a blog for the same reason I have. It’s actually really helped me focus on my novel so I wish you luck with yours!

    Just read this and if you ever wanted someone to go over your work I’d be happy to do it! I love reading and have always dreamed about being an editor (I’d like to move on from just editing my friends’ essays haha)

    Hi Andrea! Thank you for liking my post and drawing me to your new blog! You started your blog for the same reason I started Learning to Take Up Space. I’ve been wanting to tell my story for decades and wanted to give others the opportunity to tell theirs as well.

    I have edited books professionally in the past and would be more than happy to help you with yours if you would like. Feel free to contact me if you need help with anything.

    Good luck with everything and you’ve earned a subscriber in me.

    Wishing you the best,
