the authoress

Hello and welcome! I'm Anika Joy, a spunky ENFP, professional procrastinator, and devout Christian. I am a devoted writer of stories and am continually coming up with new ideas for novels. I blog as a person right here and as a poet over @ the beauty of words.

Writing for me started with making my own little books out of printer paper. Then came the short stories about dragons and princesses and little brave girls. When I started writing my first novel I was (and still am) 12 years old.

Thanks for coming over and checking out my site. I appreciate how much you all support me and my writing! :)

  17. Hey, Anika! Your blog design is so beautiful gah! I've been slowly learning how to make blog designs as well as I branch out my blogging a bit...can I ask what programs you use to create them?

    I've heard good things about Bootstrap, but I'm honestly so new to all of it that I have no clue where to start :D

    1. Hi, Madison!
      Aww, thank you!!! That's great! I love it when people learn how to make their own designs - it's a sign of independence to me. :D

      I use many programs, but for all my images I use Picmonkey.com. I get the clipart and coding from all over the web for free. I usually search for tutorials for the coding.
