Good news!

I participated in a Dutch writing competition and today there was announced that I am on the longlist! The longlist contains the best 23 stories out of 67 and I am super proud!
In two days the shortlist with the best 5 stories will come online and out of that 5, a winner will be chosen.
I am already super amazed by the fact that my story is on the longlist so whether I will be on the shortlist or not, I am proud! 🥳❤️

For the second day of this game, I chose Boy 7, from Mirjan Mous. I read this book a few years ago and found it very thrilling at the time!

The #letterA was from yesterdat but I decided to join this challenge a bit later! 😅
The letter A reminds me of my most recent finished book Amari and the Night Brothers from B. B Alston.

In this grey and boring weather, I saw my chance to finish and send my latest story for a monthly writing competition! Fingers crossed! 🤞
Now it's time to go get my book and read myself through this rainy day!

Currently reading this book by the German writer Jana Hoch. I normally do not read horse books but I want to give this one a try. Someone out there who read this book as well? (maybe not in Dutch but ok) I still dont know how I feel about the story for so far.. 🤔

I love writing, especially now in the summertime when I feel more relaxed than in the busy schoollife. 🙈

Oh and, is it weird to laugh when reading your own writings?

Guilty 🤣

hannah-leeloo Welcome to litsy. I love writing too 4mo
MelanieSolane @hannah-leeloo Amazing! What is your favorite genre to write in? 4mo
hannah-leeloo Poetry and inspiration 4mo
MelanieSolane @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks thank you so much for all the effort! I will check them out! It's quite a labyrinth here when you are new on Litsy, actually 😅 4mo
MelanieSolane @hannah-leeloo So interesting! I enjoy writing poems as well but the Inspiration genre is new to me. What does that mean? 4mo
hannah-leeloo So I write short stories with meaning of strength and courage to keep going hidden in the tale. 4mo
BooksNBowls I used to write constantly when I was younger and especially in college when there was a lot of inspiration but since I‘ve been in my domestic lifestyle I‘ve gotten into a slump! Hoping we get a new computer soon and I‘ll be inspired again. Writing on a tablet is no bueno! 4mo
MelanieSolane @hannah-leeloo That's great! I also love to write fairy tale like stories with a deeper meaning! So nice to hear other people who have this interest! 4mo
MelanieSolane @BooksNBowls Hii! I can imagine! Sometimes it can be hard to start writing after a while but don't worry! Once a writer, always a writer! I have a bit tje opposite, actually. When in school I hardly find the time to write but now in summer holidays, I write all the time! I recommend you to search for writing contests or competitions. It gives you and audience and, most of the time, also a theme that you can get inspired by! 4mo
MelanieSolane @BooksNBowls For me personally, I love to write on paper. Just a notebook and a pen makes me the happiest! I only use my laptop when I want to send it to people but when I am writing for myself, my notebook is the best! Maybe you can try it! You can take it everywhere so when you have a sudden moment of inspiration, you can write it down immediately! 4mo

MelanieSolane @Eggs thanks a lot!!! 🤗🤗 4mo
MelanieSolane @UwannaPublishme thankkssss!!! I indeed follow them on Instagram. Do they also have a litsy page? 4mo
MelanieSolane @TheSpineView nice to meet you! Yess I think writers and readers go hand in hand! Without writers no readers but also without readers no writers!! 4mo
MelanieSolane @hannah-leeloo Amazing! Thank you very much! I would love to share my stories here but since they are all in Dutch, I am affraid not many people will be able to read them.. 🤔 4mo
UwannaPublishme Writer‘s Digest doesn‘t have a Litsy page....yet. Maybe we need to suggest it to them. 😉 4mo
Elizabeth2 Welcome! 🙂 4mo

Hap! / druk 1 | Carl Hiaasen

Okay, I have a question for my fellow literature lovers:

I am writing a poem but I had some trouble finding a title.
I came up with a title but there is already a book with the same title.
Do you think that is a problem or should I just use the title if I like it?

Let me know down below! ⬇️
Thanks!! ❤️

I made this drawing of a passage from the book Amari and the Night Brothers from B. B. Alston. I loved the passage in which Agent Fiona empowers Amari. It really feels like a switch in the mindset of the main character. 🥺🙈

Pickpick

I just finished bingeing this book. I wasn't sure if I would like it because of Amari telling the story from her perspective but after a while it felt natural to connect to the story in that way.
Near the end of the book, I felt like a lot was still to happen. The story had a nice pace and took me by the hand but I felt like the ending could have been longer to deepen the ending.
Still, I loved this book and its semi open ending.
Would recommend!

MelanieSolane @ozma.of.oz That sounds interesting! Thanks! Is the challenge with some sort of list of books (something like that?) or is it people recommending books? 4mo
ozma.of.oz So it‘s a yearly challenge hosted by @Charityann ! Each month has a fairy tale, and you‘re encouraged to read retellings of that fairy tale and share your review with the hashtag! July has been Aladdin, and August is going to be Robin Hood! 4mo
MelanieSolane @ozma.of.oz oehh looks fun to me! Thank you for the recommendation. I will check it out! 4mo
MelanieSolane @ozma.of.oz I just read the information! That is just right for me! Only the printable bookmark is a big yes for me! 😁😁😁 4mo
