Hi everyone🌞

I am so excited to share with you some of my very first writings (or rather little scratches).

I have played with the idea of writing my own stories forever but I've always lacked the patience (and, admittedly, the courage) to just start and WRITE.

Being the perfectionist that I am, I always want to do things right from the beginning, but unfortunately that's not how the written word works.

Always believing that my writing skills weren't good enough, and assuming that my stories were way too boring or confusing for anyone to actually understand them and be wanting to read them, I have FINALLY realized that which should have been obvious from the start: writing is a process, and not a product.

These negative thoughts and unhealthy self-critic that teared me down and kept me from trying again were hindering that process. I was so focused on having a finished end-product that I had forgotten why I even wanted to write.

This account mainly serves as a plea to myself, to remind me not to stop whenever I'm stuck, but to take a glance back and worship mistakes in order to eventually learn from them, and grow.

I would love to hear your impressions and honest opinions and will be grateful for every productive feedback (on style, word choice, plot...whichever you find needs commenting or critic).

Some of the texts are very short, others are parts of a bigger project, and most of them are unfinished, but I hope that you will enjoy the ride through all kinds of thoughts and worlds that I have created in my head.

I am still discovering my personal style and voice and experimenting with narration. I am eager to learn new approaches and hopefully develop an even deeper passion for writing🌸
