Many a writer has been quoted as saying, “I write because I have to.” It’s not about money (there isn’t any) nor is it about publicity (most writers reach fame posthumously). It’s more so about the innate need to write. As a thirsty man reaches for a glass of water, a writer reaches for a pen.

I’ve been writing since I learned the alphabet. Every now and then, I come across a poem or short story I wrote in first grade, fifth grade, or high school. Looking over the unsophisticated prose of my juvenile musings, I sometimes cringe at my poor rhymes or hyperbolic metaphors, but overall, I recognize an unrelenting quest for meaning, whether through a poem about a junior high crush, a short story about a homeless man, or a satire about the students in my AP English class. And the quest continues.

I’ll not be the judge as to whether what I’ve written is worth reading, but regardless of readership, I can’t stop writing. And thus, I have a blog.

What is my blog about? Perhaps it’s about nothing. Complete minutia. Maybe it’s about everything. Life explored through a micro-microcosm of one girl’s blog. Or perhaps it’s about one girl’s most-Quixotic life and all the juicy details. Most likely, though, it’s complete minutia, and I’m OK with that.

    Hey Anaka!

    Don’t know how I stumbled on your blog, but thoroughly enjoyed reading it! Have spent 2 hours this morning already 🙂 You have a neat style of writing and an eye to pick up seemingly little but wondrously beautiful things from the rigmarole of daily life.

    Tell me some of your fav Kafka stories and any good books you’ve read recently. Would love to hear from you.
