My name is Yoxani Bastidas. I used to run track in High School. I remember fondly how I felt just before the beginning of a race, knees bent, the tips of my fingers brushing the dirt, eyes focused forward, and my heart pounding inside my chest like Ricky Ricardo’s bongo drum. Today I’m having some of those same feelings, a mix of excitement and anticipation, as I start this writer’s blog. I’m thrilled to start my race alongside my friend, Jessica Wakefield.
While Jessica is fanning her face in the Australian heat, I’m in Utah sheltering inside most days to stay out of the cold, but despite the distance there is something we both do. We write, and write, and write. It’s our passion!
So many amazing things are cooking here at Adventures Yet Unwritten. You will find posts from the most amazing book covers on the planet to overcoming writers’ block once and for all.
So, Jessica, let’s do this.
Hey, Jess here. While Yoxani was running in high school, I was on the other side of the world day dreaming and devouring Sweet Valley High books. Reading Little Woman and Anne of Green Gables – Jo March and Anne Shirley were my literary heroines and they inspired me to write.
Writing is an adventure, and Yoxani and I will be sharing our adventures here with you all. We hope you’ll join us along the way and share what works and what doesn’t, how you write and what inspires you to keep dreaming up stories and writing them down.
From one end of the world to the other welcome to Adventures Yet Unwritten…come and join us.
