A small note
I never reread my own work, because I desperately feel compelled to change every word. I am never satisfied with my writing… perfectionism is my greatest enemy. For this reason, my writing (unfortunately) contains many imperfections; typos, plot-holes, mixing of facts, etc. However, I genuinely love writing, and by some miracle, find readers willing to tolerate these countless faults and uncover meaning and expression behind my words.
For those readers, I will continue to share my writing.
So thank you.
Change is the reason her mother is a different person; the reason her pianist father plays only bitter melodies and why her outgoing-self diminished to an introvert who cannot express herself verbally, but with artistic creations.
The time she spends scrawling in a sketchbook are the moments she cherishes most. For that tiny amount of time, her broken life is forgotten –and, as impulsive as any other career decision, Grace knows she wishes to make it her future.
In order to embrace the competitive world of art, however, artists need to repeatedly alter their techniques and skills to match their opponents.
But how can somebody, so afraid of letting go, chase her unstable dreams?
