You all know, my dear readers, that my biggest dream would be being a published writer.
However, I’m not talking about me in this post!
I want to tell you about a fellow aspiring writer who is trying her best to do something I’m not very good at.
Yes, because, I read, I plot and I try to start writing…but these are just side dishes of the main course: complete what I’ve started. Something I am apparently unable to do.
This other writer instead is very good at it, so she’s just inspiring in her way of living!
Her name is Michela and she’s Italian too. I don’t know her personally as I’ve met her only once for five minutes but we keep in touch online.
A mutual friend introduced each other as, a part from writing, we have something else in common: our passion for Jack Black!
Actually even in that she’s more involved than me! She’s a winner, folks!
The reason why I’m writing this post is to prize her. Despite being very good and talented, I’m not sure she realizes how good and talented she is, so I hope I’ll manage to carve here a reminder for the tougher moments.
Let’s face the truth, we all have those nasty spells.
I’ve just finished to read the second volume of her series called “I racconti di Kel”, a high fantasy with a rather original story.
I won’t talk here of the story itself, although I think you would like it. However, it’s still a private thing and I think she prefers this way for now. Besides, this isn’t the point of the whole speech here!
The point is that I admire her, because she’s very strong and determined and very much the person I’d like to become.
I always complain I don’t have much time or I’m tired, but the truth is that I like of determination… I guess.
Michela works in an ice cream store and every morning starts her job at 5. Afterwards she goes back home and usually takes care of her niece and nephew and then she helps in the house. When she’s done with all these, or when has some spare times she writes.
She managed to finish and edit two big volumes doing as such and just for this I think she deserves admiration.
But not only.
Another reason I respect her for is something I had at the very beginning, something I partly lost after all the workshops I’ve made for years: the art of improvising and following the instinct.
Lastly I admire her for the unconditioned love for her characters. Mind, I love mine too and I get attached to my characters as well, but she’s far ahead on this point also.
She wanted to bring them alive and able to see them and touch them, so she asked to other two girls, as talented as she is, to reproduce them in drawing and in 3D.
I’ll insert in this post two pictures, one for each one of them.
I’ll also link their personal space, so feel free to have a look at their work, you just click on the pictures. I think it’s worth your time.
In conclusion, I want to thank Michela for teaching me a great lesson…well, actually more than one!
Also I want to wish her best, because although she thinks she just wrote this story for herself, I firmly believe she could go much further than that!!!
And most of all, please keep writing the third volume as I want to know how the story goes!
Since the artists whose works are in the last picture are more than one, following I’m going to list the names, clicking on the hyperlinks you’ll reach their Facebook Pages:
