I am a contributor to the infinite stream of information that gets poured into the web each day. This is my official blog. In addition to blogging, I publish ebooks, write articles, and volunteer my editing skills to non-profits. But this is not your typical writing blog – I talk about what I like and don’t like in books, and you can take from that as you will. The how-tos of plotting, characterization, grammar and all the other nuts and bolts of writing have already been covered endlessly, so let’s stake out some new territory at Stories and Stuff, shall we?
I originally set up this blog to share my stories, which is why you’ll see a ‘Stories’ tab up there at the top. But otherwise I blog about stuff: books (mostly), ‘Why Healthy Romance Makes Bad Novels‘, ‘The Lost Art of Reading Dictionaries‘, the frustrations of writing, and the phenomena of singleness.
One last note – being a good little history student, I’ve had it banged into my head that I have to talk about what perspective I’m writing things from. So what eyes am I looking at the world through? Well, I am a Christian, a female, a Canadian, and a current university student. If you’re interested in my Christian perspective on stuff, check out my other blog, Somente a Deus. But this should give you some idea.
Harma-Mae Smit is currently surviving your typical tumultuous twenty-something years, but through it all has clung to three constants in her life: God, travel and writing. Despite her strong Dutch-Canadian roots, she’s discovered a small piece of Brazil in her soul after venturing onto the South American continent. Her love of travel, though, is rivalled only by her life-long love of writing. Her fingers felt the itch even before she could spell, requiring the conscription of her mother to spell out every word of her story that had to be written.
