Hi! I’m Laura.

I’m a writer, reader and enthusiastic general hobbyist.

I love discovering new things, experimenting with cooking, and honing my various crafts (generally with enthusiasm but no great expertise). I’d love you to come on this everyday adventure with me.

The purpose of this blog is to keep up some steady reading, writing-and-publishing habits, to explore different topics, styles and techniques, and keep myself accountable on my bigger writing goals. When possible, I also want to write more about exploring around my home and beyond. I hope it brings you joy, as you read about my life, the universe and everything.

Caution: literary references ahead!
