A Little Book Update. Little Girls and Tyrants

ImageI am glad to report I’m making some progress on “The Book”! It’s only the slightest bit of progress, but progress nonetheless. Slowly but surely the first in my “Strange Little Girls” series is starting to take shape. Currently only the first verse is actually finished, but words and lines and other parts are slipping in bit by bit. And it’s about time! I started that first verse a month and a half ago! Feels nice to actually see things move along. Now to get that moving past the current snail’s pace. ^_^

I am considering changing the title of the series, though. I think it’s a nice title (as well as a Tori Amos reference, which is never bad), but I’m not certain if it really, fits. I don’t know. Doesn’t matter that much. It’s not like it’s high up on my to-do list. Just something that’s been hanging in the back of my head for a bit. Might stay, might go. We’ll see.

I’ve also been planting seeds for a new story idea in my head, which, if it gets done, I plan on making part of the book. In (very) short, it’s going to be about a group of people seeking to escape from under the yoke of a cruel tyrant. It might not the most original idea at first sight, but then again, it’s only a very general premise and the story’s only in its very early infancy. It’s loosely based on actual events and has a bit of a personal side to it, so I do think I’ll be able to make this my own.

And that’s it for the day. Not quite the meat I had hoped for yesterday, but hey, what are you gonna do? I just enjoyed making the teensiest bit of progress on something other than my thesis and felt like sharing it. Plus, y’know, this way you can also be witness to this ever growing little piece of history in the making. If that isn’t something to tell your grandchildren, I don’t know what is! ^_~


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.
