Of writing and the Weekly Wrapup

When I was a kid I used to dream about being a writer. No, not about being a writer as much as writing a book. I really wanted to write and publish a book. Or a couple.

In school the Finnish classes were my favorite thing. Mostly because of the essay writing. Especially I loved when we were allowed to write stories, fiction, something of our own. The fact based writing felt a bit wrong to me. I never felt I had enough data to back up my writings.

When I turned 13 I got my first computer. The main thing I did with it was of course writing. I would write "books". I would write short stories. Poems, diary, anything. Most the time I just wrote.

I got familiar with Internet and this thing called World Wide Web in late 1997 and found out it was great for two things: Connecting with other people and publishing. I could write what I wanted and publish it right away. My first websites were filled with my poems and short stories. (Some of the people close to me, who thought they were wise and knew all about the world, would say my poems were too personal.) I also started to keep these little online diaries, before I knew anything about blogs.

As you can guess, writing is still something I love to do. In times I think I could write that book, though now I also think I could as well publish it myself. Perhaps one of these days I will come up with something. Fiction or fact. And maybe it will be an e-book, self published in the spirit of the Web.

Last week on tasselflower blog (eg. Weekly Wrapup)

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Lapsena haaveilin usein kirjailijaksi ryhtymisestä. Tai ei niinkään kirjailijaksi ryhtymisestä kuin kirjan kirjoittamisesta. Koulussa lempijuttuni olivat äidinkielen tunnit. Lähinnä ainekirjoituksen vuoksi. Erityisesti tykkäsin kirjoittaa fiktiivisiä ja vapaa-aiheisia aineita. Faktapohjaiset tekstit eivät oikein iskeneet. Kun täytin 13 sain ensimmäisen tietokoneeni. Pääasiallisesti kirjoitin sen avulla. Kirjoitin "kirjoja", lyhyitä tarinoita, runoja, päiväkirjaa ja mitä tahansa. Kunhan kirjoitin. 1997 tutustuin nettiin ja huomasin, että se on loistava alusta kahdelle asialle: Yhteyksien luomiseen ja julkaisemiseen. Kuten voit arvata, kirjoittaminen on yhä tärkeää minulle. Joskus ajattelen, että voisin kirjoittaa vaikka sen kirjan, vaikkakin nykyään ajattelen myös, että voisin julkaista sen vaikka itse. Ehkä se vielä syntyy. Yllä myös listattuna viime viikolla tässä blogissa julkaistut kirjoitukset.
