Welcome to Brouillon d’ecriture

Hi! I’m Amanda. I am a travel loving creative writer with ambitions and dreams to become a published travel author. Brouillon d’ecriture – literally meaning “draft copy” (in French) is a place for me to compose and share my thoughts, stories, ideas, musings, and writing samples. I am hoping to receive a fair amount of feedback. This will help me to become a published travel author.

With an enormous amount of love for both traveling and writing, it has been a dream of mine ever since I can remember to write a book about travel. On Brouillon d’ecriture you will be able to find samples of my work. If you like what you read (or even if you don’t!), I am always seeking critiques of my writings. In order for me to succeed and accomplish my goal of becoming published, I am always on the lookout for feedback. This helps me to grow and learn and change my writing style to adapt to my readers.

Just a California girl living in a big world

Originally from LA, I spent a lot of time moving around California as a child. During College, I did a study abroad semester in France, which solidified my urge to write a travel book. After college I have been working as a freelance writer to pay the bills. I am hoping to soon be able to publish a first draft of my book. I am always looking for a new adventure and new people to take part with me. Good adventures make good stories, and good stories make good books! I have been to a number of countries in Europe, but I want to expand my horizons and learn more about other cultures and traditions. I believe this will be a necessary step to successfully write a travel book.

What are we waiting for? Lets go!
