This is something that is heard on many occasions, and in my surroundings it is heard especially from students, including me. Why such a low self-esteem attitude?
Peer pressure, you’d say? What about parent pressure?
I Think WAY Too Much!
This French quote from François Mauriac very much describes my main motivation for siding with evil characters in my stories. I can’t really translate it though, because in English it won’t have that same impact it had on me, you see… The French language has a particular (charming and poetic) style that I just can’t reproduce in English. But basically, Mauriac tells us that he prefers to write on those who are ‘evil’ and unconventional instead of those who are good and virtuous.
I can totally understand why. (And I totally understand Mauriac thus that’s why I’m in love with his book, Thérèse Desqueyroux).
When I think of arranged, it reminds me strangely of my childhood, when everything was… arranged. I mean, I was very obedient, followed the rules, predictable… I have been ‘arranged’ in a particular way.
And I was fond of the Smurfs storyboards!
So well arranged, right? I don’t have the whole collection though.
Sorry for I’m a bit late in this week’s photo challenge. Anyway these days, I’ve mainly been indulged in…
Yes, in the thickest of all school books I’ve ever had to study! It’s nicknamed the ‘dictionary’ of sociology. I’m fortunate that the subject is interesting… ^^
Getting serious about my studies hehe.
An Evil Nymph.
I’ve reached 50k words too yesterday night ^^ (did you see my winning badge on the right??) but hell, my novel is nowhere near ready! I feel like I’m still halfway in the writing. I reviewed it briefly yesterday and realised that I have much much to edit and all that. But really, I thank NaNo because thanks to this challenge I am now determined to finish the story and maybe next year or when I’ll be ready for it: I’ll go and publish. My dad told me he’d help me if I do.
I’d never thought that I’d come back to teens’ books.
I usually read young adults or adults books, you know those which are 400+ pages As an avid reader since I was born (yeps my mom did the reading for me until I was grown enough to read by my own – I was so excited at that time and frustrated that I didn’t know many words), my reading levels went up very quickly. I read teens books when I went to secondary school therefore at 11 years of age. I read R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike, well there were so many. But NO Sweet Valley or things like that! Yeps at that age I was also very picky about books… and authors! There was a time when I would only read Pike’s books and no one else. Of course that changed. Then at 13 I think, I started with literary books like Jane Austen and Charles Dickens and Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo and…
On one of my inspiring nights, my pen started to write…
Alright so I wrote about 2 pages recto verso + half next page…
I was writing about my life in all… how it changed/evolved since I entered secondary school when I was 11.
And you know what. My teenage life has been full of impersonifications! I guess I’m still trying to find my true self…
Anyway, I think I’ll copy what I wrote so that you can get to know a little bit more about me personally… I feel the need to type it down…
