If You Must Know

Hi everyone,

I know I’ve said “Hi everyone” before when I started this blog back in November 2014, and “Hi everyone” has a level of comfort and casualness…to me, anyway.  I’m here in WP because I was writing a novel last year until it was stolen by a hacker in late October.  I had over 1000 pages in that short time and at most, I was typing around 30 pages/day (I was really in the zone when I wrote.  What can I say? My heart and brain were faster than my fingers).  I was writing late into the night, tired, satisfied with what I had written so far, turned off my computer, and the next morning, it was gone.  Moral of the story: Don’t leave your WiFi on when you’re working late at night.  More about this (and ways to protect yourself) can be found on my “About” page with some comments from my first dip in the Community Pool.

I’m a logical person, so I figured that if someone were to make money off my novel, they would find out that it’s on the internet already…for free! I also try my best to not put myself out on the internet; before the hack was for self-protection, after the hack was for privacy.  Because I desire to maintain self-protection and privacy over the web, this is all you will get about who I am.

I began writing Elle's Adventure in China (EACh) in June 2014 as a fun summer project, but as obstacles kept interfering with my plans, I forked and forked more options. I took writing this novel much more seriously in mid-July, and want to have it officially published someday in my lifetime. As many artists put their hearts into their projects, so do I. I did not start out liking to read, but a professor suggested a book for me for homework a few years ago, and it was an amazing book. Since then, I read for pleasure, and I hope my novel, Elle's Adventure in China, does the same for as many of you as possible. The same thing goes to writing. I did not like to write until I took a course where the professor and papers made me love to write. I hope every one of you find what makes you happy and dedicated to work. In May 2015, I started my other blog, Read and Write Here (R&WH), as a place to post other things that aren't China- and Chinese culture-related and not EACh. I share some of my memories and experiences from student teaching, irregular participation in Daily Prompts, etc. I'd like to have regular people and bloggers to write book reviews and post it on R&WH someday. Keep reading and writing!
