An origin story —
My 8th grade teacher asked us to write a 5-page story. So the nerdy me started writing. I never planed it, but a dystopian world just appeared into my head. In a second. I was transported to it and met the main character, discovered the plot and, of course, faced the villain. It was like magic.
No secret there – I’m a Potter fan.
This dystopian world was no Hogwarts. It happened in space, on a ship with no magic. I stopped with those 5 pages, but the story remained in my mind, a project for the future. Sometimes you need to give yourself time; you need to get yourself ready to write SOMEBODY ELSE’S STORY.
A new idea caught my imagination. 8th grade, before Christmas – I start writing, on a small notebook, my ”late middle ages” Fantasy Series. 3 volumes out of 8 planed are finished and I am looking to get them published. They are in my native language, Romanian, and I will get them translated as soon as I get a solid Romanian Fanbase.
Just novels? —
I wrote short stories, poems and a children’s book for school-projects and competitions as a teenager in Romanian, English and French. Won some. Awesome.
After highschool? Medical school. My brain was busy reading millions of pages in preparing for my exams so creativity kind of decreassed. I did find the time and energy however to write on somebody else’s blog: medical articles and answering people’s medical questions (for free).
Yes, please. The funny me is the English me. It’s the Screenplay me.
New Year’s Eve 2016/2017 I promissed myself to get off my ass. I will never become a published writer if I sit on the couch all day, right!? So I started writing my first Screenplay – TV-Drama. Wrote the whole season (10 episodes, 1h Drama)! I loved the story so much that I even wrote the the first 5 episodes in novel form (1st Volume of a planned 4-Book series).
I am currently working on a fancy cover letter and a writer’s CV so I can send my first English novel to publishers in the UK.
All this while working full-time as a jolly medical resident.
Medicine is my passion but writing is my life.
