I have just written 1.000 pages on Amazon Kindle Store, and it feels good!

Even though I do not have a heroic story to tell regarding my writer past, I do have some interesting facts, I would say. Stick with me and share your thoughts!😍😎

As far as I recall, started writing actively about at 19-years old, started before with diaries, suggestion of a professor to handle emotions and to enhance my physical writing, pretty bad at the time. Unfortunately, the physical writing did not improve, but it helped me to handle emotions in a better way; I still write diaries from time to time, to handle emotions.

My first book, completed, not published, was about 22-years old, it was a sequence of books since then; none published, my current books were written to be published. Sometimes I wonder whether write to publish could influence my creativity, and writer honesty. Meditations was a diary, Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor, was writing to himself, now to the world!

Never stopped writing. Even though I am an engineer, I do enjoy romances, loved poems and literature, see my poems to Ukraine; my first books were poems and romance, my last one before the ones on Amazon was a middle term: science and romance.

The most concerning part about accepting publicly who you are is that you pay the price: in science, writers are badly seen. Scientists may deny, but they consider all writing as fiction, like, “you do not belong here”, they may most likely say as inner voice. I kept as a secret for years my writing abilities, just mentioning to close friends and people I trusted, I was ashamed of my ability to write, to write about fiction.

Until, it became hard to go on just publishing technical papers. I want to express my creativity phenix in all its espectrum.

It was one year of hard work. And it was funny. Sometimes I wonder how painful it would be if I HAD to write, like, you have no choice. And makes me wonder how pleasant work can be if you find your Ikigai, as the japaneses like to call it.
