I am Alyx Jatho, the writer who wasn’t. Isn’t. I’m working on it, okay?

My goal is to become the writer who is. That is what this blog is here for: to kick me hard in the rear end until I becoming a writing addict.

That’s me over there. Or it will be when I get around to putting up a picture. Did I mention I am good at procrastination. Really it’s more of a problem of perfectionism, or at least well-enoughism. This is important to know because it is one of my main struggles with writing.

I grew up in my mothers personal library, I look back on my childhood and what I remember are the books. They made more of an impact on me than I (or probably she) realizes. I’m the child that liked to tear down the wall of books she owned, just to alphabetize them, again.

Suffice it to say, books are awesome in my world.

This blog is me writing. Me writing about books, about blogs, about random things that cross my the path of my wandering brain. It is about being the writer that wasn’t and the journey of becoming the writer who is. Sometimes it will be serious, more often it will be quirky, mostly it will just be here.
