I have been passionate about the written word since I was a little girl. I chose to study another discipline when I was in college, but I’m finally coming back to myself–if I can describe it that way.

I’ve only recently begun writing poetry again; after a nearly decade-long absence. This blog (originally known as A Room of Her Own) has been overhauled.

If you enjoy poetry and fiction, you’ve come to the right place.

The name of the blog, Pen & Ink, is just a simplification of what I want to do with this blog. The hope is the blog will help me grow as a writer, we’ll see how that pans out.

I leave you now with a quote from my favorite writer, Virginia Woolf; perhaps it will inspire you as it has me:

“So long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters; and whether it matters for ages or only for hours, nobody can say.”
