I'd like to welcome guest blogger Marijke Westhoek (her English name is Morgan Silver) to the site. She's recently finished her first novel, The Chess Club, about a chess club that solves crimes, for which she's currently seeking an agent.
Writers are a special kind of breed. They observe the world and its inhabitants, they notice things normal people don’t and they explore worlds that normal people wouldn’t even think of. They don’t miss anything, in fact, they see more than there is to see. Normal people will never understand them and the writer does not mind. The writer pities the normal person for not seeing the array of colours they get to see, which are far more than the colours of the rainbow.
