Hello blogging world, I’m back!
A few years ago when I began this crazy journey as a new self-published author, I started – as most people do – with a blog. This blog was under the title ‘isabellamodra.com’ and worked for the first year when I was committed and lots of things were happening in my life at the time. However, as most writers/bloggers do, I became lazy. I posted less and less, I advertised less and less, and my motivation for blogging has slipped. That was because I didn’t know what I was trying to achieve through a blog. Was I trying to advertise myself as an author or as a traveler? I switched between the two when one was less active than the other. And let me tell you, A LOT has happened in both categories in the last 5 years. In other words, the blog was a little scattered.
So. This new blog I’ve decided is going to be not about my writing or my traveling, but about ME. About both in equal fashion. My dream in life is to become a successful fiction novelist with a stable enough income to be able to travel the world. So far I’ve become a quiet sensation, meaning my books are very highly complimented, but not highly discussed. I started off with a science fiction novel, I now have a completed trilogy, a stand-alone urban fiction that won a Wattpad award in 2015, a half-completed paranormal trilogy and several fiction drafts in my back pocket. As for the travel aspect, it’s been one hell of a ride. I traveled Europe for 3 months when I was 18, spent 1 winter working in the Rocky Mountains in Canada when I was 20 and another 2 winters the following year and now, at 23, I have visited around 30% of the world (my primary destination being Canada of course).
I’m hoping that through this blog I can give my online fans a little insight into the things I’m doing and working on, as well as just sharing some of the knowledge I’ve acquired over the years of being an independent traveler / author.
Thank you for visiting my blog, and stay tuned for more posts!
