What I enjoy about writing is choosing the words to use. Carefully sifting through them, like a coffee grower sorting the finest aromatic beans. Or a jigsaw enthusiast working on a challenging puzzle, trying different pieces in the spaces to see if they fit. Reading is escapism for me – I know I’m into a good book when the world around me fades and I’m transported to another place.

This blog is about both writing and reading, because I can’t choose which I like the best. There may be random things occasionally. I hope you enjoy my blog! You can also follow me on Twitter @nsfordwriter.
