Let’s Write!

So here we are again. A month since the last poem and post. A month since my vacation during which I hoped to give my writing a major boost had begun. Things turned, slightly differently than expected. My destination was Lebanon, so no doubt anyone somewhat familiar with the country can imagine the hurdles that one tends to encounters, most prominently: daily problems with electricity and water, a car breaking down for one reason or another every other day despite (or possibly because of) various repairs and traffic that can only be described as anarchy. Then there are the (to be expected) unexpected numerous visits by and to family and friends, not able to break through the language barrier as effectively as I’d hoped and the scorching hot sun shining down on the land…

Don’t get me wrong. I’ve had a wonderful couple of weeks there! It’s a no less than gorgeous country that never fails to paint a breathtaking view, whether it’s with its great mountains, its mighty cedar forests, its brightly lit towns and cities or its ancient ruins. I’ve seen some amazing sights and had some fantastic experiences. Simply being there and especially seeing my aunts, uncles, cousins and other family members again after nearly a decade has been absolutely incredible! I can say without a doubt I am incredibly happy I went!

I just thought there would have been more quietly sitting on the veranda, sipping from the little coffee cup, viewing the mountains in front of me and having my hands run across the keyboard, just writing away. As the number of posts during the past few weeks has shown, it’s pretty clear that didn’t happen and behind the scenes writing progress has unfortunately been lacking as well. Now with the vacation over and life turning back to its regular schedule I’m not much further than where I left off.

So here we are again… Now what? It’s easy, really. Now, we write! I shan’t make any promises about what and when I’m going to write (let alone finish!), neither to you nor to myself, not until I know I can keep them, anyway, but write I shall! So like I said back when I first started this blog: let’s get this show on the road!


Yeah, I know… Still as punny as ever! ^_^


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!

    That’s the thing with Beirut. It keeps your mind so busy that you find it difficult to get any writing done. Even when you have nothing to do, your mind is in a constant restlessness, just like the city itself.

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! ^_^
