Who reads is never alone.
Some things about me and Dutch people:
My name is my own.
I am too old in some ways and too young in others.
Life has not been kind even though I can’t complain.
Just because I’m Dutch does not mean I like cheese, that I do (or approve of) drugs or prostitution. I live in Holland, though if you would tell someone from anywhere else in my country this, they will shout at you. It’s like telling a Scottish person he lives in England (just an example).
I do not know a lot, but what I do know is of value to me. I like to learn, but I’m not very good at studying.
I write because I enjoy the freedom it gives me.
My favourite stories and writers are: Harry Potter, Sailor Moon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Fullmetal Alchemist, Shaman King, Naruto, Fairy Tail, Bleach, Sword Art Online, Ao no (Blue) Exorcist, Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji), Ouran High School Host Club, Hana Kimi, Raymond E. Feist, Patrick Rothfuss, Thomas Olde Heuvelt, J.R.R. Tolkien.
*9-9-2016* for all those who hoped I would continue
Yes, this is one of those most dreaded author notes. When I started FF I always thought I was never going to be one of those people who leave their stories unfinished/discontinued/hiatus or whatever. But now it seems life has caught up with me and no matter how much I would love to continue writing, I just don’t have the time anymore.
For anyone who wants an explanation:
It all started last year (2015). I was happy, life was good. I had a job that I loved, the shop was expanding so there was no way I was going to get the boot. I had returned from Japan a happy woman, planned and went to do a road trip through Wales and England and had money enough to plan another trip to Japan in 2016. I had a tentative ‘boyfriend’ that I told nobody about because I didn’t want to curse it (I seem to have a bit of bad luck in steady relationships) and I went to an Anime convention.
It all fell apart from there…
I am at an age where you either spend the rest of your life as a lone wolf – never married, always travelling and living alone – or you have a family, settle down and worry about your kids. For obvious reasons I disregarded the second. After a massive failed relationship and a few hopeless flings after that, I decided I was better off alone. That was until I entered a ‘relationship’ with a guy who… well… at least he was an improvement on my ex-fiancé.
Long story short, in November I found out I was 20 weeks pregnant. I lost myself when I heard that I would lose my job and when I learned the guy I had loved had been keeping a relationship on the side and could not afford to have a child from a woman he didn’t love.
Good news: my baby Harry was born a week and a half after my own birthday and at four months old demands a lot of attention and love which he receives in the form of myself and his grandparents, my sister and brother dote on him too. I can honestly say that I am a very happy woman.
About continuing/finishing my stories:
To channel Hermione “I’m really sorry about this…” and you know the rest.
Anyone wanting to continue an idea or story, let me know.
There is still hope that I will continue one day, but for now I will only review and maybe post a few plot bunnies here and there ;) Happy writing
And in the mean time:
Well, since my baby left meWell, I found a new place to dwell
Well, it's down at the end of Lonely Street
At Heartbreak Hotel
Where I'll be--where I get so lonely, baby
Well, I'm so lonely
I get so lonely, I could die Although it's always crowded
You still can find some room
For broken-hearted lovers
To cry there in the gloom
And be so, where they'll be so lonely, baby
Well, they're so lonely
They'll be so lonely, they could die Well, the bellhop's tears keep flowin'
And the desk clerk's dressed in black
Well, they've been so long on Lonely Street
Well, they'll never, they'll never get back
And they'll be so, where they'll be so lonely, baby
Well, they're so lonely
They'll be so lonely, they could die Well now, if your baby leaves you
