Who is this girl?

Hello.  My name is Megan and I have spent my c. 30 years on the planet in the great Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  As an adult, I have moved out of the central part of the state and into the big city of Boston and now back to where my life began.  It delights me to be back here, though if you tried to tell eighteen year-old Megan that one day she would actually ENJOY living in this small town, I would have told you that you were a crazy person.

As a child, my mother would always read to me and cultivated my love of books.  I was never discouraged from reading, writing, or dreaming of one day making something out of it all.  I indulged myself and studied English (Writing and Mass Communications) in college, only wanting to be a poet in the future, totally disregarding that the odds were stacked against me making a living that way.  Nonetheless, I maintain the dream to this day, even though my practice at writing has been pitiful since graduation… but the best thing about writing is that you don’t need to be young, beautiful, and thin to make anything out of your talents.

My main hope is that this blog enables me to improve my writing skills, to learn more about vocabulary, grammar, and (most importantly) books!  I’m terribly excited to see how far I can make this blog go and how much I will be able to grow as both a reader and a writer.  Enjoy!

ALSO – please feel free to check out articles that I write for OTHER sites, as well!

  1. That mustache is delightful.

  2. You know I remember going to the BMFA a lot as a child and staring at the samurai swords in the basement for hours (to say I was a latch-key kid would be a bit of an overstatment– I was on the bus and subway alone by the time I was ten). I used to think, Boston is so cool! Then I left and went to the wilderness and I hardly ever miss it. But I will say that growing up there certainly does things to you– and some of them aren’t even bad.

    • The samurai swords at the MFA are great. 🙂 I remember those well from childhood, too.

      I still love living in the city, though as I look ahead to having a family, feeling the draw of the wilderness a little bit more. Hopefully someday in the not-so-distant future I’ll be a little further from the city and all of its wonderful distractions. 🙂

  3. I’d recommend Alaska… but most people I’ve known from my tribe wouldn’t fair well there.

    • Also I’m a terrible speller (in english, which is an atrocious language concerning spelling) and I honestly don’t know which spelling of “fair” I should have used. I hope you’ll forgive me if I got it wrong. However, being from Massachusetts I will understand if you don’t.

      • We are pretty horrible here in Massachusetts, but I’ll forgive any misspellings. No worries. 🙂

        And — Alaska! I’ve always wanted to go there. I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to set foot there at least once while I’m alive.

  4. Oh, and I just remembered the other thing I loved so much at the BMFA was the “mummy room.” I loved all the ancient egyptian stuff. So old… so mysterious…

  5. I’m a big fan, so much so that I’ve nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award!

  6. I’m on goodreads too! I’ll send you a request 🙂 Love the blog so far, its my first time checking it out. Keep it up.

    Hi, nice to meet you 🙂 You have a great blog here!

  8. You were right; I had been nominated for that particular award already. I did however accept another award as I said I would. It was a lot of work. As such I thought it might be rude to automatically nominate you for this other award. However, I did add you to my blogroll (under the subcategory: “The Readers”). Keep writing and reading. I look forward to your next poem.
