Hello Mandies and Gentlewomen, welcome to the insane world of my mind.
My name is Gwydion JMF Weber and I am a young writer from Germany with goals far beyond what I should be dreaming of. I’ve been writing since I was 11, but I always loved inventing complex worlds and stories, characters came later, but now I love them as much as the other two. For a long time, I kept my work in the secluded cabinet that is my hard drive, but a while back I started publishing stuff (if posting it on a blog that nobody reads counts as publishing, anyway), but I ran dry. Not of ideas, but of motivation and work flow.
The truth is, I have too many ideas, too many concepts floating around my mind, looking bright and shiny until I grab them and try to illustrate them with worlds, then they start looking like deep-fired dogshit. Eventually I left most of my projects and focused on writing down Ideas, developing characters and environments and plotting more stories than I can count (I’m not very good with numbers, so it may very well be just 5…), but the process of writing itself didn’t go, at all. I just couldn’t do it. It all felt so inorganic, so artificial, without any rhetorical pirouettes or abstract metaphors, bumpy descriptions and chaotic structures were the only things I got.
But at some point, meaning the middle of the night on a glass of pesto and old cheese, I decided to try something out: writing in English. And the words were flowing. I don’t know why, I don’t know how, but I do know that I find the English language much more fun to use when writing. I hope this was the right decision, but I’m positive about it. I do still have an “old” blog were I published some of my German stuff quite regularly for a short period of time, so if you are interested you can find it here.
I hope to get this running soon, so, see you then.
