Step by Step – A Book Writing Update

Progress is certainly not coming as quickly as I’d hoped, but steps towards “The Book” are being made. As I said earlier, the focus for what is to be my first published work (aside from my Master’s thesis) shall be my poetry. I’d been considering using already finished work, collect it and use that as the basis for the book, but recently I’ve decided to change directions a bit. As I was talking with a certain friend, my weekly story of poems, The Artist’s Tale was mentioned. It was a fairly short mention, but it did turn out to be an inspirational one. It got me thinking and it did not take me long before that thinking turned into serious considerations and not long thereafter into an actual decision (never thought I’d see the day): my first book would be a narrative poem

The Artist’s Tale is one of my favourite writing projects, one I attempt as well as I can to continue every week and to write something in a similar vein made sense. In addition, a narrative poem combines my love for telling stories with poetry, something I found to be one of my biggest strengths writing-wise. And now I can combine it all into my dream of writing and publishing a book, a dream that comes closer and closer to becoming a reality.

The actual contents are well on their way of coming together, but for now I’ll be keeping them under wraps, at least until the preparations for the writing process itself are finished. The poem collection I initially wanted to go with will still be made, but, like the other ideas, at a later point. For now, though, it’s this (totally) mysterious narrative poem that will be the main focus of the near future of my writing life!*

*(This should not negatively affect other ongoing writing projects. They’ll continue as planned!)


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.

Hi! ^_^
