Hello! I’m Melissa, an aspiring YA writer who recently graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in English. I have a particular soft spot for children’s and young adult literature, especially stories containing magic and/or monsters.
This is a blog about stories: reading them, watching them, writing them, using them to make sense of the world. I find it easier to talk about stories than to talk about myself, so I’m going to try using stories as a way to talk about my life.
The name ’emptybees,’ in case you were curious, comes from my initials (MTB). I was very impressed with myself when I came up with this.
