Let's Start From The Very Beginning.

Hello, Reader!

I'm positive you have read a ton of 'Hello, my name is...' blog posts in your time, but when else am I going to tell you vital information about this blog and myself? No time like the present! Allow me to introduce myself.

Hi! I'm Madison, and the reason I opened this blog is because I wanted to discuss with the world my two favorite things: Writing (and everything that falls under that category including: books and poetry), and Musical Theatre (especially Broadway and the West End). It has come to my attention that quite a few people who enjoy writing also enjoy theatre and vice versa. That being said, this blog is for all you singing and acting writers out there...I am one myself!

I suppose I should tell you a little about myself. Everything I love is already listed on my sidebar, and believe me, you'll be hearing a ton more about those things! You should be expecting to see a lot of photo edits revolving around books or musicals, poetry written by yours truly, book reviews, ramblings about Les Mis, things I have to say about my favorite characters (from books or musicals), quotes, song analysis...pretty much anything and everything revolving around books and musical theatre!

Yet for you to get to know me better, you should probably know my ambitions and dreams, correct? For that reason, I'm sharing with you my 'life list'! I aspire to someday have 365 items on the list, but I haven't gotten there yet.
