I’m always dying to know what other writers are currently writing. It’s just special to know what kind of story is currently being born, what story will one day adorn the bookshelves in local book stores. And since people have already expressed curiosity as to what I write, I’ve made a special shiny new page for you to explore. It’s at the top of the blog, right next to the About Me page. Feel free to let my pet dragons guide you or have cookies along the way.
Let me first tell you that I have a huge imagination that is usually filled with Skittles, pet dragons, unicorns, castles in the sky, candy floss and triple rainbows. I’ve written short stories about a Japanese hit woman and an android who is about to go to the scrapheap when she and her captor get into a hover car crash. The first full-blown story I wrote was a chick lit story for NaNoWriMo which I wrote in Dutch. Once I discovered I had the writing speed of a ninja, I became eager to finish my projects which were mostly fantasy. When I was studying Creative Writing at the uni of Kent a new pet project jumped into my mind and started rearranging the furniture. For a while I wanted to write some sort of modern Nancy Drew type story and when I was trying to sleep (it always happens then) the first page of my story trickled into my brain. I had to get up and write it down and that became the beginning of The Chess Club. A story that blends humour, mystery, quirkiness, Skittles and sarcasm.
If you’re working on a story, tell me about it. I like hearing about your projects or how your word count is progressing…or not. And if you have any questions for me, I’m right here in my writing lair. Just don’t pull the bell, my pet dragons are napping.
