What is good reading?
Books are the best. My whole house is filled with them. I am very much convinced that you can never have too many books.
Sometimes there’s a place where it all comes together. The Dutch town of Leiden has a new place like this: Index Poetry.
As I told you in my previous blog post, I recently submitted some poetry to a Dutch writing contest, Write Now!. I was very nervous to put my writing out there and it has been quite a process.
Two years ago I started writing creatively again after a really long break.
Online travel specialist Travelbird asked ambassadors about their favourite books to help you prepare your travels.
Why does reading makes us want to write?
Poetry has a reputation of being hard to understand, but the best way to learn more about it, is to just dive into it.
I have quite an elitist taste in literature (and arts in general, and maybe just life in general). This is not a problem: everybody likes different things and I don’t have to be ashamed of the fact that I like these things. I’m not bothering anyone.
A new year and some new reading challenges! I have some cool new reading projects planned.
