My name is Sandra Nguyen. I'm the creator and editor of The Topaz Journal. I created this blog to keep an online space for my writing, and to connect with like-minded people.
As a child I always had a story brewing in my head but I never had the courage to write. You wonder why? I believe Margaret Atwood explained it perfectly 'If I waited for perfection, I would never write a word'.
Forty years into my journey I discovered to write is to take a journey into yourself. Maya Angelou once said 'there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you'.
And so the journey begins. The Topaz Journal gives you a glimpse of my bare soul, and if it touches your heart, then know I am only a message away.
