Wednesday Write-Up

I just finished writing a 93,000 word book and it was a roller coaster of a project. However, it is far from being done. I still need to write a query letter, a synopsis, find an editor, send it out to agents & publishers; a long way to go. However, the process of writing a novel got me thinking that I should write more on this blog. This is an outlet for me to write whatever I want on whatever topic I so choose. With that being said, I have decided that every Wednesday, I will post a piece of writing. There won't be a specific topic, but I think it's important that I continue to work on my writing and perhaps give a better insight into China or my life that may not be conveyed through just pictures. 

For anyone who might read this blog, I'm open to any suggestions about topics or things that you would be interested in reading. I know my audience is small, but I'm always open to feed-back as this site is meant not only for me, but also for those who engage with it. So please, leave a comment on this post or under the Contact page, you can send me a direct message.

Side note - I'll be in Japan from December 23rd - January 2nd. The smog and monotony of spending the past two Christmases in Beijing was the primary factor in deciding to spend Christmas 2017 in Tokyo.
