Welcome! I’m Allison. I write here at Mind Joggle about books, reading, writing, creativity, learning, and anything related and in between.
I’ve always said that my dream job would be reading books for a living. Well, that and writing books and becoming a world-renowned author. Easy enough, right?
I didn’t quite go either route, opting instead for a “practical” writing career that more easily pays the bills. Nonetheless, those dreams of long, cozy days composing the stories that play out in my head persist—as does my love of great books, writing stories, learning interesting things, and discussing it all with others.
What is Mind Joggle?
The name Mind Joggle is inspired by Emily Dickinson, and in a tongue-in-cheek way describes what I aim to do here: get inspired, get thinking, get creative, all while indulging in the hobbies I love most. With two young kids and a busy household, it can feel hard to do all of those things, but building an outlet to connect with others who share the same passions seems like a good start. Hope you’ll join me!
