Well, I guess I should start with the obvious; I’m Alyssa, and this is my blog.

If you’re like me, you likeĀ to learn about and explore the world around you. Having grown up in a relatively small town on the southeastern coast of Florida, I wasn’t really exposed to much of the world. My parents provided me with books, television, movies, music, and the internet to take me to new and faraway places, and in those places, my imagination grew beyond the confines of my coastalĀ hamster ball.

That’s why I became a writer.

When I started to tire of reading, watching, and listening to the same stories over and over again, I learned to create my own. I wanted the world to read my words instead of the other way around. And, that is what has brought me here — to you.

This blog is a way for me to share my stories with the world. It’s a way for me to connect with people I would ordinarily never speak to. This blog is my way of expressing the imagination my parents fostered in me throughout my life. This blog is, simply put, just an extension of a brunette in a hamster ball.

Share your stories with me as I share mine with you.
