At a meagre four years old, my mum decided that I was some kind of writing prodigy for no other reason than knowing how to spell the word “decide”. I had written a short story about a duck that decided to dress up as a swan. She even showed off to my grandma, wondering which side of the family I inherited my apparent “impeccable smarts” from. I thought – with the limited logical judgment I had at that age – that she was being silly, of course. However, I never lost my love for reading and writing. I like to think that I have a good relationship with words and the way that they can be strung together in so many different ways. I still think my mum was being silly, but my passion for writing still burns strongly.
Eighteen years later, and it only made sense to make a blog.
So allow me to introduce myself –
I’m Sharna, and I’m a 22-year-old cat and dog mum, student, and a beginning freelancer. I live in London, UK, with my mother and two cats. It’s just us; I like it that way.
I’ve always been something of a wanderer, having been raised in the countryside and promptly finding myself longing for the bustle of the city.
I’m a big fan of video games, aiming to someday pen one – or more (aspiring developers, feel free to hit me up!) someday. More recently, Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts have won my heart.
I intend to write (hopefully quite regularly!) about many different things here; games, books, love, life, travel, mental health, various franchises that perk my interest – anything that draws a twinkle of passion in me. Most of all, I intend to write to connect with you lovely people out there as I learn to steer the reins of blog writing!
