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 DIY Amateur Hour) has been overhauled.

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

The name of the blog, A Room of Her Own, is a play on Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own. This blog will be my place of creativity, contemplation, and questioning. I’m hoping it will help me grow as a writer.

I leave you now with a quote from Virginia herself. 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.”
