I've decided to start a blog. Are blogs still a thing?
November 14, 2020
I turned 40 this year. When 2020 started I had a lot of plans. New York, Portugal, sky diving, getting back into shape, maybe even finding a bit of love but you know what happened next.
In March I left work with my laptop thinking we'd all be back in two weeks. It's now 8 months later. Since then, I've moved back home. I still have a great job that I feel very lucky to have. I know many people are struggling much more than I am.
I'm starting this blog because I've always said to others and myself that I would write...BE a writer.
I've called this The Late Bloomer because I have always felt that I come to things a bit later than most people. And because I want to continue to hope that I will do something that will leave a mark in the world. Create something that will remain after I'm gone. That will prove that I existed and mattered.
So this is me trying to do something. I don't know if any of this will be any good or if people will want to read what I write but in the end, at least, I'm actually doing it.
I will write fiction and non fiction. I won't edit too much. Let's see how it all goes.
I hope it inspires or at least creates a mood.
Here we go…
Oh right, I almost forgot...I'm Sylvie
