Brooklyn's story.

___________

Dear Japan is over. It has been for months now. Wow, I still can't believe it, I finished a story lol. This is harder than you think, I mean writing regularly and actually finishing the story? Doesn't. Happen. Often. Plus, I've seen that people keep reading it, it has now 5100 views! This is insane, especially when I see stories written in more of a stylish way, having less views than Dear Japan. Don't flatter my ego, folks. 

I've written something, moments ago, the first chapter of my new novel! (I've been tortured whether I should have kept on going with The Pursuit of Happiness but this story is like, I don't feel it. Maybe some day, when I have no inspiration for the new one, I'll give it a go). 

So, basically, it's about love. If I manage to wrap this one up (Rose & Feather: Brooklyn's Story), I'll write 2 other books, namely Paris' Story and London's Story. (Both are Brooklyn's brother and sister.) Under the same name: Rose & Feather

I think I got a outline/feeling for this. 

Just like I did with Dear Japan, I will use this story as an outlet for my feelings and for my English skills. I think that's the only way I can turn a fastidious task into a fun game. 

I sincerely hope you like this new journey with my deep characters lol.

Profile Information

A Feather On The Computer.

 

I am a university student who likes to write about anything. I am 18 years old and I am gay (which is the reason why most of my work will probably be gay-themed or gay-related). I was born in an Island called Mayotte, which is Muslim and does not support gay rights. I have been through a lot. I mainly love novels, reading and writing. I write in English, most of the time, but I also like writing in French since it is my mother tongue and I can nuance things in a more efficient. I will try to provide as much as I can and I will fill up my bio as I go along and come to this website.

Coming out has been something difficult: among my parents, breaking the news (coming-out) was not the best idea I ever had. What I mean by that is that they really took it badly and I kind of regret the fact I told them that. Never mind. Now it is done, I guess. No harm done, ever since.

My sentimental life has always looked like things you see in movies: it's never quite that simple. Like an "I love you, and you love me, there's nothing that can stop us from being happy". It's all soppy and melodramatic. lol It always was a complicate, intricate, abstruse love life. That is the main source I draw inspiration from. Inspiration feeds on many things, but the greatest inspiration of all is the one drown from sadness, anger, and melancholy.

Actually, I'd say French helps me a lot, when it comes to speak English. It might seem crazy but there are a lot of resemblances between those two languages and more often than not, people tend to tell me my English is very formal and straight to the point. It seems to me that the standard French (by "standard, I obviously mean the "grammarian French") sounds like a lot like formal English way of speaking. Of course, it is open to discussion.
