If you’ve made your way here, I’ll assume you’re interested in learning more about me. Don’t worry I won’t tell anyone. I like to do that too.
First off, introductions. If you can’t tell by the name of this blog, I’m Alyssa – writer, blogger, and certified geek, and Alyssa Lost in Space is a little project of mine.
Besides the occasional update on my author journey, and any helpful tips or quips on writing, blogging, and living more creatively, you can expect a lot of gushing about books, fictional lore, video games and the like. I can get pretty enthusiastic, so I hope you’ll forgive me for indulging my inner geek.
That was why I started this website rather than restrict myself to the more traditional author blog. I want to celebrate what I enjoy and what inspires me, and encourage others to do the same. I want to share everything I learn so that others can learn from my example and hopefully succeed faster than I could. I want to talk about everything that has made me the writer and creator I am today – the successes, the fails, and the struggles.
Currently, I live in Canada, though I’d very much like to travel around the world and write from a laptop with an internet connection. I love stories and story-telling, no matter the format – books, movies, video games – you name it, I’ll binge it. And I’ll take a good adventure story over a romance any day.
As you may have guessed, I’m a fantasy and sci-fi writer, and I write under the pen name Alyssa Flynn. I’ve been a storyteller since I was a kid, though it was many years before I thought to try and turn that passion for storytelling into a career, but here we are, pushing forward one day at a time.
My first self-published novel will be coming out later in 2020, and you can learn more about that here.
Sometimes I try to draw, and I love dabbling in graphic design. I also design and make jewellery on occasion. Anything that stretches the creative muscles is a good thing, and I am always trying to find ways to live a more creative and fulfilling life.
I also like to collect enamel pins and cool mugs. I swear by my franken-bujo system and I am probably too optimistic for my own good. But either way, I hope you’ll join me on my adventure.
You can also join my newsletter if you want to get a behind-the-scenes look at everything I’m working on and early, sometimes exclusive access to free stuff like worksheets and resources and other fun things like short stories and novel sneak peeks!
