• Who am I?

    I am Qrystal; or at least, that's my dot-name! Har har. (My name is really Crystal, but that's not as internet-searchable; hence, switching the C for the little-used letter Q.)

    I am here because I enjoy writing. I do this mostly for myself, but I also have a passion for helping others learn things from the things I write. Now that I am done my Ph.D. in Physics, I am stepping away from academic research so that I can indulge in some creative ways to share my knowledge and inspire the appreciation of scientific thinking in others. I am also working as a tutor, which is one of the jobs I've most enjoyed doing in my life so far.

    I have come to the point where I want to say “out loud” that I want to get back here, and write more.  So here I am, doing exactly that.

    Will I post any of the things I’ve half-written over the past few years?  I don’t know.  Maybe.  I might even backdate them (I’ll denote these as such, for honesty’s sake).  Or I might focus on moving forward instead of looking backward too much.  Hard to say at the present. (Harhar.)

    I mostly want to stretch my writing muscles again.  I need to get my fingers back to typing, so that when I do NaNoWriMo this year, I am not held back by my fingers aching from lack of use.  Seriously, I’ve barely typed a few hundred words a week in the past six months or so, which is why I think I might suffer if I jump in too quickly.  So, some short blog posts seem an appropriate warm-up, no?


    So I’m yearning for returning, as the title of this post says.  Perhaps just this short little post will help spur me forward, toward posting more, soon.
