Miscellaneous Mum - Trying to find the objective correlative, everyday
Reading. Writing. Parenting. Creativity.
Hello! I’m Karen Andrews. You’re after some information? I am happy to help.
This site is primarily about two subjects: family life and my love of reading and writing.
I was born and raised in the small town of Kempsey, New South Wales. I live in Melbourne now. City life is great, but I miss the country as well.
I was raised a strict Catholic. Now I suppose I’m what they call ‘lapsed’ but let’s not get into semantics, okay? I think I still shock members of my family by what I’m willing to talk about here. I’m pretty open.
I enjoyed university so much I had a Master of Arts (Literature) by the time I was twenty-one years old. In sum: I am a book nerd.
A few crappy things have happened to me to round me out a little as an individual. I used to have an eating disorder. I have a mild form of anxiety (GAD) and there’s been a few illnesses along the way that are too boring to mention but are in their own way still relevant.
I spend far too much time on the computer and have done so ever since since the 1980s.
I am a writer. I try not to be too pretentious about my writing and I’m certainly not here on Miscellaneous Mum. If I had a dollar for every time some snark has written to say, “You call yourself a writer? Don’t you know how to write a complete sentence? YOU’VE PUT THE APOSTROPHE IN THE WRONG PLACE!” it would be a nice addition to the coffee fund. I am very serious when it comes to my offline work, but this has always been my playground. Fine? Good.
Speaking of my offline work, you can read more about it here.
Hate mail and spam are deleted immediately. Just saying.
Part of my ‘Living List’ has a philanthropic goal – so if you’re interested in seeing how I plan on achieving it, and what I did before implementing this goal, click here.
For old-fashioned snail mail – which I adore – I can be reached at:

From the dictionary:
[It is] something (as a situation or chain of events) that symbolizes or objectifies a particular emotion and that may be used in creative writing to evoke a desired emotional response in the reader.
The phrase has been around for a long time but is known primarily from the famous essay by T.S Eliot on Hamlet. At its essence, I suppose it is the ability to make meaning found by observations of life and making sense of these within your own personal context. This is what this blog seeks to do.
Nope – you’ve made it all the way to the end. Bravo!
