Les « coeurs sur la main » n’ont pas d’histoire ; mais je connais celle des coeurs enfouis et tout mêlés à un corps de boue.
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).

So this is Christmas…
But what have you done?
That night I saw an angel fall from the sky. Her golden hair gradually lost its shine as she reached the ground. Her beautiful white gown was stained with dirt. I could not see her eyes or her face, but I knew that she was the loveliest thing that could ever exist on Earth. She looked so fragile and innocent.

After an exhausting day… which is better than this?
An evening sky to stare at… Soothing your mind, erasing your worries for some instants. When I was young I used to stare at the clouds and make out the shapes they showed me.
A peaceful period of life for most of us. :)
An Evil Nymph.

This is only a warning to an upcoming post I am currently writing and that when I’m re-reading it I feel I am tthe only one to understand it. So just a little background on my imagination…
The post is about my frustration: I’m currently in bad terms with my cousin who is abroad, a cousin with which I’ve always lived, like a brother.
It also conveys my obsession – “love” is not strong enough I guess… – for Arthurian legends; my interest in the mystery of life i.e reincarnation, past lives etc… and the strong belief that legends and myths did exist in a way…
I’m a sort of dreamy not-in-this-world writer girl.
Don’t judge me.
Accept it :)
PS: I just love writing that’s why I can post almost anything, from sense to nonsense! xD

It’s been a while since I’ve been reading Nora Roberts and recently I’ve borrowed one of her books: Blood Brothers; and I’ve thought about making a sort of praise and critic Nora Roberts post. Therefore…
What I like about her:
She knows how to capture her readers – whether they be horror books fan or romance book fans. Her writing is defined and beautiful. She has the ability to write about anything really… fortunately for me because I don’t like 100% romantic books… but at the same time she is faithful to what she has already decided: to write romance books. She knows her subject very well and does some research before writing. Very easy to read and description doesn’t make one sleep… :)
What I don’t like about her:
Her romantic stories are too… well too dreamy, “soulmates”-like, unrealistic… and when I read her books it hurts because I know it just can’t be like that in real life. She always follow the same pattern: if she writes a trilogy there are 6 main characters: 3 men and 3 women – and in each book Nora tells the story of each couple. After some time you get bored with her novels because you already know this pattern – therefore no unexpected turnover of the romantic story, no cheating ;) then you better prefer and concentrate on the background story i.e. the horror included one or mystery included one… :)
Thus her single books are better as the romantic story in them are more profounded and better told… but not for me because I don’t like romance ^^ compared to the trilogies which are full of different themes!
