I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.  – Flannery O’Connor

AnnLovell2016smallHi! I’m Ann. I love words, stories and books in just about any genre, on just about any topic. I also love to write, and as a creative outlet, my blog is a reflection of me.

I’ve used the blog for different purposes over the years: to keep most of my thoughts in one place, to experiment with different writing forms, to review books, and to link to my own stories and books.

For now, the blog is what it is: a place to catalogue my writing — short stories, essays, opinions, reviews, and reflections — on a variety of topics. No, I don’t post something every week or even every month. I tried that a few years back and I ended up with a lot of drivel that wasn’t worth the keyboard it was written on. Of course, I won’t promise that what I choose to post now is award-worthy, but at least it is a reflection of what I really care about and enjoy. In that way, the blog follows my life, the times when I’m creatively focused and the long absences when other priorities take precedence.

So, thanks for stopping by. If you like what you find here, come back often. If you don’t, there are certainly other places to find a good story. We’ll see how this turns out.
