Yesterday was my BIRTHDAY Blonde & Clueless’ers!
I had a great time waking up early, bumping my toe against the chair, stumbling over the wire of my hair straightener almost landing my face against the door. #Blöd&Clueless
You: “So Evvy, did you get a lot of prezzies?”
Me: “Ahm no, we’re not in Bavaria…”
You: “I mean presents…”
But that’s not what birthdays are about once you turn 29. It’s about enjoying the company of your loved ones, friends, having a little wine, …
But I am very excited about one present I got.
And it happens to be the present I gave to myself…
Yesterday morning I went to the print shop around the corner to print….
MY VERY OWN BOOK!
That’s right. I have written a book. My debut as an author. And probably the only one I will write since it’s my poor little life story until now.
Or at least 40%.
I should reconsider my PR before I make this official. Some parts are rather… shocking.
Anyway back to my memoires. Knowing me a little you probably assume it’s chick lit right? NOPE! No ‘Sex And The City’ or ‘Fifty Shades of Gray’. I wish I had the brain to write such bestsellers. I would be filthy rich.
My story turned out a little bit more complex and therefor I will never earn big ass $$$$
“No no no, positive thoughts Evvy!” What you reflect to the mirrors of the Universe, you will get back tenfold!
So I am happy to tell you it’s THE BEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN! Move over J.K. Rowling. I’m taking over your throne with a BANG!
You: “So Evvy, what’s it about exact-ly?”
Well, it’s a feminist manifesto, disguised as a tragic love story.
(Oh right that reminds me: #metoo )
It’s a ball of wisdom disguised as a naïve narrative.
It’s a BESTSELLER disguised as a BOOK!
Ok, that last thing was maybe a little exaggerated. But I am pretty sure I have written the new Bible. This is some Ultra New Testament shit fo sho.
You: “Has it got anything to do with the blog?”
OMG yes! How did you know? I am so proud of you You-San! I taught you well. Yes, that is exactly right. The story I have told on this blog, referring to the Australia-China-Japan-France-Canada-Berlin bit, is basically the chronology. So it is very much about traveling for wisdom and a lot of references to spiritual and paragnostic pickings, the Universe, religion, philosophy, etc. But it is also a touching love story of which you don’t know the depths because I never mentioned that on the blog. Truth revealed: The blog isn’t even half the story.
Anyway, I think it’s super cool, I am very happy with it unregarded of what will happen to it now. My options being:
- publishing it
- handing it out for free
- burning it
- passing it on to my (grand)kids… Or cats
- keeping it under my mattress…
- … more suggestions welcome!
I want to thank my awesome friends and roommates here in Berlin for speeding up the process. My main goal to come to Berlin was to write this book. I needed to remove myself from my comfort zone and close myself off somewhere else. As in a creative bubble or fever cabin to sweat this story out. I gave myself until the end of the year to write it but I started 18th of August and finished 18th of October. Right in time for my birthday.
My new room worked it’s magic on me. Ever since I left Prenzlauer Berg and moved to Wedding the writing process shifted into a higher gear. I want to thank Amos for letting me stay in his room and leaving his creative AMOSPHERE! Also for wishing me good luck on the writing while he was away. By the way, check out his record label Index:records he’s a real mean music maestro.
And of course my in house roomie Addison who will become world’s most famous music producer one day. You can check out his ‘COSMIC COMPOSITIONS‘ on Facebook, Instagram, the whole shebang. And give the pages a like when you’re there alright? Very creative house here!
I am sad I will be leaving this place tomorrow but luckily I already have a new room to move to and thus the story continues!
Well the story of my life, that is. The book is already printed and I don’t want to make any more adjustments 🙂
So for now I say good bye. Until next time. Let me know if you would like to read my book. Any suggestions on what I should do with it next are very welcome.
By the way spanks a lot for the mad birthday wishes y’all! ❤
