About Me

Hi! My nameself is Lisa, and I am so happy you decided to visit Reading, Writing, and Random Musings. I am here to share personal book reviews, my encounters with authors, details on my journey as a writer, and miscellaneous other tidbits as they strike my fancy. My goal is not to bog you down with another blog, but to either entertain you or make your life easier by sharing my triumphs and struggles in the literary world. As I  researched other blogs in preparation for writing this one, I  realized that brevity is key! I will share in as short and concise a manner as possible!

I have always been an enthusiastic reader, even as a child. It is a way for me to unwind from the everyday craziness of life, and something I look forward to every night before I go to bed. I read a wide variety of literature across many genres. I’ve found that the book I think I would like the least, ends up being a favorite (Hello, Hunger Games!).

In August of 2013, I started to write my first novel. I was done thinking about the “what if’s” and ready to act! I finished my first draft a year later, and I am currently working on revisions (which is a somewhat overwhelming process for me). As I continue to pursue writing, I find it inspiring and motivating to connect with people with similar interests. It helps to hear the stories of others, their challenges and what they did to overcome them. I hope that by sharing, I can help others in a similar situation, and I’m hoping that somewhere along the way, someone will offer some advice to move me forward.

I always love to hear from people, so please feel free to look around and comment! You can also find me on twitter @rwrmusings. Hope to hear from you soon!

    Hi Lisa,

    After checking out Reading, Writing, and Random Musings I can see that you’re a fellow bookworm! I’m Courtney from Cotopaxi and we are passionate about adventure, making a positive impact, and inspiring others to do the same. Right now, we’re on a mission to discover the best & most beloved adventure stories.

    For me, the mention of adventure novels brings to mind the obvious big sellers such as Into the Wild and Lord of the Rings. No matter what your personal adventure fantasy is, there are some stories we can all relate to. I’d love to hear which adventure book you feel no one should go without reading.

    For this project, we are looking for a select number of passionate people, like yourself, to write a post on their blog that discusses their favorite piece of adventure literature and how they carry the book’s lessons with them.

    Let me know what you think, I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

    Adventure on,
