Thank you for visiting my profile! In case you are curious, here is a bit about me.
I’m a daydreamer that loves art, photography, music, movies and learning languages (8 so far). I’m also a nerd, I love to learn. Which is good considering I’m doing a master’s in life science (anything and everything related to the living cell). It took me a while to discover the joys of reading, not until my first year at university really, but when I did… I was instantly addicted, despite my slow pace. My favourite books include Good Omens and others by T. Pratchett, Harry Potter, Catcher in the Rye and I mostly read (Urban) Fantasy.
Even as I child I felt the magic of books. It was not just in the words, but in the unique scents of the paper and the feel of the pages. When I was ten I never got as far as the end of any of my Goosebumps novels, now I wonder if I ever read the entire first chapter. Being a dyslexic, non-native English speaker, I didn’t have the patience to read at such a slow pace but even as a little girl, I loved making (not only writing) books. As I grew older and progressed from short children’s stories of lost puppies to longer tales, I started to get lost in my imagination and rarely got anything to the page.
Lately, I’ve been inspired to start writing. I’m not sure how far I will take this new endeavour but I will start small, concentrating on one aspect of writing followed by another and so I hope to work my way up. This will be a learning process and I am a little unsure where to start. Not to mention that I am rusty writing anything but lengthy, dull laboratory reports. For now, I want to get used to writing so the storylines probably won’t be very original. But this will give me a chance to play with words and learn how to set a scene, the mood, how to write dialogues… find my own style hopefully. And so constructive criticism and comments are always welcome and appreciated.
