Ι hope I am in the right place to introduce myself. I am Ysis and even if my pseudonym sounds Egyptian I come from Greece. Being Greek is not very popular nowadays, I don't know though if it was popular in the age of Pericles either. I have been off and on writing since adolescence. Writing for me is like an allergy or like a chronic disease. When I finally feel that I have got rid of it, it reappears. What I have written until now is fairytales ( both for children and adults), some short novels which look like free poetry (it was not my purpose), many starts for ambitious novels, one start for a less ambitious novel (I know the story, the characters, everything, but I have confused the narrative line, so I have set it aside). I have an obsession with detail - I could describe the weather or the scenery for ages but I guess that I have to decide finally whether I want to become a meteorologist or an author.
Even if my mother tongue is Greek, I am trying to adjust to the Globalization Era and try my luck in a foreing language (which I love very much, I admit). The reason of my presence here is to see if I can swim in a foreign literary environment (learn from it, receive critiques, ask questions and - if I can - give answers). Thank you for accepting me.http://www.squidoo.com/greek-debt
