Gone Camping (again)

Hello everybody :)forest-falls-1443347_960_720

What have you been up to, except for watching football (given that the European Championship is going on atm)?

Seeing that my favourite Teams (Wales and Iceland, for those interested. I always love to support the underdogs) are doing surprisingly well, I have been writing.

So, it’s time for another little status update – Second Camping Edition :)

Camping, colours, crazy (good) times

 

Just a little status update, given that you haven’t heard from me in quite some time ;)

So, what have I been up to in April? (Writing-wise, of course. No one cares about the boring rest ;) )

“Hello, is this the author speaking?”

tumblr_n17kd4yjxo1rfe77so1_500Many people think that being a writer means not being very interactive by default. You sit there alone in your room, typing words into your computer or drawing character charts on your note pad. It’s just you and the story, no one else needed.

Well, partly those people are right, but partly they couldn’t be more wrong. As a writer, your chosen profession is to tell stories. And even though you always start off telling them only to yourself, you already dream about making them public one day, to share them with the world, with an audience. This is the moment when you start to realise that writing a story is not a lonely or self-centred project at all. It’s more like trying to start some sort of conversation. You are not just an author, not just a writer, you are also a story teller and a sender of messages. You are communicating.
