Profile Information

Lynn Papilio - strange name, isn't it? But it expresses everything I am: Lynn, a nickname that was given to me, and Papilio, the Latin word for Butterfly. Papilio does not only express my love for different languages, but also reminds me of what my mum used to tell me all the time: "You're an ugly caterpillar, but don't worry - you'll become a beautiful butterfly one day - you'll spread your wings and fly!"

I believe that's exactly what I did.


Now that we got that out of the way, I might as well talk about myself a little more.  I am almost 17 and currently live in the United States - as an exchange student..  which is absolutely fantastic! Originally, I'm from Germany, and unfortunately, after nearly 10 months, I will leave the US in about 2 months. But I'll come back after finishing school in Germany because I absolutely love it here. And don't worry, as soon as I set my mind on something, I'll do it. Definitely. Without any doubt.

Well, writing has always been one of my greatest passions - I started with diary-entries that more and more developed into poems or songs. That is mainly what I write now, but I currently work on something bigger - maybe a novel, but I'm not sure yet. You know how that is - you write something and don't know where it goes - sometimes you end up with a poem or a short story, and sometimes it's just too long to qualify as a short story ;)

Anyways, since I am in the US, my poems have become a lot more positive - and with my poems, basically my whole approach to life has changed and become more positive, which is great. My previous poems and stories have always been depressing, and I am glad that now I am able to focus on the positive side of things, though sometimes I can't help it and my hand just kind of writes (or types, now in the 21st Century) without me having any control over it. ;)

Okaaaay, right now I can't think of anything else to write about and I'd be surprised - positively, of course ;) - if anyone actually read this far. If you did, thanks for your interest!

And since you've come this far, you might as well check some of my work out, don't you think? ;)

I'd appreciate every comment or like! Whether it is critique or encouragement, every honest comment helps me to improve or just enjoy writing even more!

Thank you very much.

& hasta la vista!
