"Sir Stafford Nye had been a disappointment in diplomatic circles. Marked out in early youth by his gift for great things, he had singularly failed to fulfill his early promise." (Passenger to Frankfurt by Agatha Christie)
That's me. Or rather, it would have been, if I'd ever been singled out for my brilliance at a young age. Or happened to be a Sir with an awesome name like that. So, basically, the part about failing... that's me. But hey, no need to get bitter.
What you might (or might not) want to know about me...
I have this terrible habit of PMing people a list of errors I found in their stories... If you don't like it, just ignore it!
I speak English, German and some Japanese; I can kind of read French and learned Latin only to go and forget it the second I walked from my exam. I tried out some Korean and Hindi. I'm in my late 20ies yet terribly immature and love Tea and Sweets.
After a year of fruitless attempts of being a responsible adult and finding a proper job I'm back to my university. Still no idea where I'm going from here. My babel's tower of bordering-on-the-ridiculous optimism has collapsed. It's about time to build something new from the rubbles. It has been, for a long time. But I don't know how. I'm not Bob the Builder, you know?
Writers I admire
Writers that earn a living with their work. Yes, well, I do have some favourites:
About my stories
The Dragon Princess
A story I wrote in 2002. Basically a fairytale. People said it was too short, and I totally agree. However, inspiration hasn't quite struck.
A door to other worlds
Part of an English assignment I did back in 2002. A short story. Not very original but I enjoyed rereading it after these years... Please feel free to check out the first two handwritten pages! They have drawn frames which I took some time to make and they are probably the best part of the story, to be honest.
I was asked to continue this story, but won't be able to do it any time soon...
Elster und Perle
Ich hatte die größten Schwierigkeiten, das Genre für diese Geschichte auszuwählen... Wenn jemand bessere Vorschläge hat, her damit!! Bitte :)
Beneath the Cracks on the surfface
This story was inspired by my student job as a guard in the museum. Walking these halls for hours and hours, you do start to get ideas... (By the way thank you so much everyone who bothered leaving comments!! I really should improve the formatting... would separate chapters be better?)
A story I originally wanted to write for a friend to give it to her on her birthday; However, this has been dragging for many months now! But it's one of the two projects I'm really working on these days...
Because the Ocean swallows the Sun
They are quite short and mostly written just for the fun of it. I guess the one I like best at the moment is "Something worth saying". Maybe because it captures one of the conflicts I come across again and again. I keep stopping, keep hesitating... Keep doubting if what I'm doing is of any real worth. If it's legitimate to be spending my time on something that is purely superficial. Something I realize I'm mostly doing to please my ego. I keep wondering if there isn't actually something else I should be doing right now, some crossing where I failed to turn... well, you get the idea.
Check out some of my Art on my Wordpress blog! It's called punkteundstriche. Maybe you can find it! (I don't think this profile will let me display links, which is sad :(
