Hello! I’m Anna, a 23 year old graduate from Scotland. My aspirations include, but are not limited to, the following: write well, travel widely, eat great food, learn more, smile often and run a marathon (someday).
I decided to start writing this blog, thinking of it as a place in which to gather all my thoughts – thoughts about culture, world issues and art as well as my own personal ideas, creative writing, and expressions. In short, Word and Whimsy.
I always wrote diaries when I was younger. I loved writing stories and poems too, but somewhere along the line, I sort of stopped. Recently, I was really keen to get started again, and since I put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard more often nowadays), I’ve well and truly caught the writing bug again. And I love it. I think writing is one of the best ways of self-expression, and in rediscovering my love of writing, I am rediscovering a love of learning and a passion for the things I love most in life.
I hope you enjoy my writing, and maybe find something here that sparks your own interest, like it has mine!
