Holly Goes Lightly, originally designed as a way to keep out-of-town relatives up to date on my children’s shenanigans, has evolved into… it’s still pretty much just a blog to keep out-of-town relatives up to date on my children’s shenanigans.
I have four kids: Caleb (8), Benjamin (6) and Daniel and Ella (4). I have a puppy who will hopefully some day be a dog. Her name is Kiah. I have a husband, John. He will hopefully someday be an adult. He’s a lawyer. I’m a writer. We’ve been married for over 11 years, which is a personal record for me. On a related note, this is my first marriage.
Now is the part where I answer Q & A about myself and my blog:
What do you write about?
I write pithy posts about day to day life. Nothing too deep. Occasionally, I touch on politics, religion, depression, and other things you aren’t supposed to discuss at a dinner party.
Why write a blog?
I started one day on a whim and then I couldn’t stop.
Are you a “published” writer?
Yes! A little bit! See my website: writerhollyjennings.com
Not to brag, but I’m an exceptionally fast typist and a pretty good speller. Also, I know what a gerund is.
Hobbies and interests?
Oh, the usual. I bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback.
I’m a Christian- the believe in Jesus is my personal savior kind- am interested in religious thought and philosophy.
I like spending time with my family and friends. I read fiction, write fiction, collect leaves in the fall and snowflakes in the winter. I like old movies- especially black and white film noir, and anything with Joseph Cotton, Cary Grant, or Ingrid Bergman. I play piano and am teaching myself the guitar. I recently learned how to use my sewing machine, so there’s that. I collect scrapbooking supplies and if I could, I would travel. I love the Adirondacks. I like camping in a tent and I wish peeing in the woods was easier for girls. I love NY State, but if the tax situation doesn’t improve, we could very well move to a warmer, cheaper climate.
I think my kids are pretty much the greatest.
I was never very good at bowling.
*** UPDATE: Sold all my scrapbooking supplies. It was never gonna happen.
