Storytelling is a large part of this blog, and also part of my heritage. Thanks to my one fourth Mi’Kmaq and three fourths French descent, storytelling was my ancestors’ way of carrying on family traditions, and it continues in my writing.
Living on a tiny island off the coast of Canada, one would think that a person would have very few stories to tell, but that is not so. Many funny and interesting things happen on the island of Newfoundland, and I am here to share them with anyone who wants to read about them. With that, I must admit, I write a lot.
I always wanted to do an English degree, but never got around to it. But never say never. I write from my heart, not from what I was taught. I confused school teachers by writing endless essays when they only wanted two or three pages. Since most of them were too lazy to read all the pages I wrote, they just gave me great marks…
I hate math but I have always loved English. I love to read almost as much as I love to write.
In this blog, I try to post stories about things I find funny, things I may have heard that were amusing or weird, or things that generally piss me off. I make it my goal to try and write at least one post per work day. Since coming to WordPress, my writing has begun to evolve (at least I think so). I began writing mostly autobiographical works, but as of late, another side of me has emerged, a side that writes horror and suspense stories as well. Hopefully this is a good thing.
So stay tuned, read, comment, criticize the world of SightsnBytes. Nice to have you on board.
p.s. The picture in the header is a shot of the community in which I live. We are totally surrounded with trees, but if you look real good, you will notice houses among all the green.
