The brain thinks words.
The hand writes words.
The eye reads words.
The ear hears words.
The logophile loves words.
Some logophiles have no brains,
Some have no hands.
Others have no eyes,
Others have no ears.
Yet: all logophiles love words.
She died on 17 October 2011.
I had a dream to become a story writer since early childhood. And yet: I never took the courage to follow Mark Twain's advice to throw off the bowlines and to sail away from the safe harbour. But when my mother died I knew: the time has come. I must become a writer.
So, this website is dedicated to my journey to become a writer. I have oodles of stories in my head. But I know that the road to success will require hard work and dedication. And in between, I must still survive financially.
Update March 2013
2012 turned out as black a year in my life as 2011. My own health took a dramatic dip and I was in and out of hospital several times. On 22 January 2013 I had a light stroke. For several hours I was not able to speak coherently and could not use my right arm. That was a serious wake-up call!
