Welcome stranger

   So here I’m supposed to tell you a little more about Important Nothings, (ahem) my blog. What it’s about, why I started it. All the stuff.

    I’m Olivia, an average human bean with a love for all things literature. From To Kill A Mockingbird to The Hobbit to Jane Eyre to A Wrinkle in Time to The Westing Game… THE BOOKS. They’re all spectacular. So many of these rambling little posts are about books. Readings. Ravings. Reviews.

    And then many are about writing. Since I also do that. I might even share some of my recent scribblings, which will be a surprise for all of us, since I tend to hate sharing my work with anybody. I’m currently working on a YA fantasy novel, which is progressing at a brisk and encouraging pace… more like molasses than anything else that comes to mind.

    About the name, Important Nothings. I knew I wanted to start a blog, but was stuck for inspiration in the title department. And then I stumbled upon a quote by Jane Austen (one of my favorite authors of all time). She wrote this in a letter to one of her friends:

    “Which of all my important nothings shall I tell you first?”

    I loved it!!

   I’ve set myself the official goal of posting the first of every month, but I tend to adhere to that more or less strictly as I’m in the mood.

   Thanks for stopping by, I’m so glad you’re here!
