I’m Jen! I’m a former copywriter and editor. These days, I write about the things that matter to me, when the mood strikes. This started as a blog about my knitting and my kids, and evolved into a cathartic place where I could put together all the little pieces of ideas that float around in my head and seem like they might be something significant. When enough of those build up, it usually feels like it’s time to write.
I write about my life. To quote Flannery O’Connor, “I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.” I write to process my deepest emotions and to get my most complicated thoughts out of my head so I can sort through them. If any of them are worthwhile or interesting, then I’m glad. Enjoy!
As for who I am, I’m a wife and mom. I’m an adventurous cook, an avid reader, a seamstress and knitter, and a wielder of power tools. I’m a runner and heavy lifter. I love ballet and yoga, opera and indie, the Pacific Coast, and really really long baths.
Why “Feffer?” It’s how my niece used to pronounce Jennifer. Funny kid. 🙂
