Goblins burrowed in the earth, elves sang songs in the trees: Those were the obvious wonders of reading, but behind them lay the fundamental marvel that, in stories, words could command things to be.

Hello, my name is Sandra Harvey and this is my first day as a blogger. The idea came to me while sitting at Pizza Delight with my boyfriend today. I was thinking on all the ways to make my writing more well-known to the world, and it occurred to me that blogging could be a fine starting point.
Although I’m completely new to this online writing stuff, I think I’ll try what comes naturally to me: write what I feel. I guess for my first post I will talk a little about myself and what I like to do.
(I’m not a big fan of talking about myself, but for the sake of trying something new, I’m going for it.)
I live in the small city of St. John’s, NL. Not much happens in the run of a day here, but I love the city life. I go to a school here in the city, studying Graphic Design. Creating posters is interesting in its own way, but what I would really like to be is a writer. I hope to attend university soon to extend my skills even further.
Besides the obvious stated above, I also enjoy reading, drawing, digital colouring, horseback riding, video games, watching movies, the outdoors, and – recently – healthy food cooking (seriously, it’s much more fun than making anything that’s bad for your health).
Also, I love puppies, and would love to have one except my apartment building won’t allow pets. Very sad.
I do freelance work in both Writing and Graphic Design (which includes anything from posters to business cards to logos). I really enjoy creating things, so look me up if you need something done! I’ll be happy to assist you for a price (bills to be paid, you know). 😉
Drifting back to my earlier interests listed, I mentioned that I enjoyed to read. Though I haven’t been able to find any good books lately. If anyone has any ideas please let me know! I’d love to sit down with a good read again. My latest finished book was Shadowheart by Tad Williams, which is part of the Shadowmarch series. I really like fantasy novels, so anything in that genre would be great!
Anyway, to sum it all up, I’m a graphic designer from St. John’s with a passion to write. This is my very first post and I hope I’ve done a decent job captivating you for now. Until next time, farewell!
