Writing for the Soul
I am not sure what made me start… writing stories… but I think I can link it to my friend’s birthday. I didn’t have any gift for her and I wanted to give her something personal and original, but I didn’t feel like painting at that moment.
I sat down and started writing. I didn’t know what the story would be about, I didn’t have any idea in my head. It was unfolding while I was writing. I was really surprised by what I had written and I liked it.
I never realized that I had writing skills. So it turned out that I had accidentally found a new way of expression. I had been painting because there were things I could not express with words. I started writing when my picture message was no longer enough for me. I wrote occasionally and rather for myself. And then one of my friends started to persuade me to add my stories to the calendar with my illustrations that I issue every year. Another friend of mine had the same idea, and then another one…
And so I decided to do this and my four stories appeared in the 2018 calendar. Thank you girls. Maybe one day something bigger will come out of this.
