Hi, I'm Heather. I write this blog. I have a BA in English and an MA in Professional Writing.
When I first decided to write The Ladies' Guide to Surviving Anypocalypse, I envisioned it as a satire regarding the stereotypes about women. However, the Guide didn't take long to become something else. Pretty soon it was more about survival and self-defense than stereotypes.
I am learning as I go. Generally how this works is I wonder about something in general (How does one throw a punch properly?), go out and research it (take kickboxing classes), then I write what I've discovered. I try to be engaging and a bit funny. Sometimes I write book reviews. Sometimes I post original fiction.
You'll notice in older posts the pronoun "we" as opposed to "I." This was a rookie blogger mistake: I was trying to sound more important and expansive than one chick wearing pajamas sitting in a room with a laptop writing about making the perfect Go-Bag. I thought about editing that error out of those posts, but decided to keep them. I learned from those mistakes: I don't want to erase them.
That's my story. Or, that's the part I think you would be interested in. If I'm wrong and you want to know more, drop me a line and let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to get in touch other ways, you know to tell me I'm awesome or let me know what you would like to read about, I'm also on Twitter and Facebook.
