Originally Elissa Barton’s personal blog, Read. Write. Listen. Create. launched in 2016.

When she was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy in 2015, she decided to start writing about how she was feeling and some of the fears she had after hearing that news. Along the way, this blog turned into a place where she could write posts about anything from book reviews to upcoming events and her writing journey.

Today, it is a mix of book reviews, upcoming concerts, pop culture news, and anything Elissa finds fascinating in the media. She’s always sure to bring a hint of nostalgia to her posts whenever she can and she’s been known to find ways to incorporate 1980s movie trivia whenever possible.
