My love for writing started with diaries. Probably encouraged by my mother, I started writing in dairies on a daily basis as well as I could at that time. Complete stories. That then resulted in writing down existing lyrics, creating lyrics and eventually poetry.
FROM LUCY WITH LOVE
In the end I’ve come to the point that I want to get more out of my passion for writing. I retrieve more then a large amount of satisfaction out of writing for everyone who can’t find the right words for it. Somehow I just know how to process text in such a way that it captivates and inspires people. Where others can’t find the words, I’m able to tell how to transfer the message in the best way after just one conversation with the person in question. I want more than just sending out e-mails. The Dutch don’t use the saying “Wie schrijft, die blijft!” (“Who writes, will remain!”) for nothing…
I myself don’t originally come from a family of entrepreneurs, however my parents are known for their hard work ethic; hard work and diligence. For this reason I was taught that you must be willing to work, before you can actually be rewarded. The urge for the entrepreneurship might come from my grand parents, whom had their own company after World War II. Blood is thicker than water, so it shows.
Ever since I was young the language always has intrigued me.
I watched a lot of BBC, bought English magazines and had a pen pal in England. At school English was my favorite subject. In my career I mostly enjoyed the period of time in which I had international contacts.
Since it’s the third-most-common language in the world, I thought “I might as well add it to my work!”.
Of course it will probably attract a wider range of public, but the main thing is that I enjoy writing it.
My work can be recognized by my personal approach. I strive to win the attention of people, while something might not even belong within their interests at first. To succeed at inspiring, captivating and motivating people through text is my best reward. I see personal approach as a key. I hope this will partly result in putting a signature stamp on my own work.
