EN/RO: This is the year of new beginnings in my writing career

DSC_6455______EN: I have always wanted to write a book. Then, after I felt it wasn’t room left for me in the Romanian literature industry, I decided I wanted to write screenplays. A much harder path in which I haven’t had many successes till now, only a second place in a short scripts contest. Yet, I kept on writing between job tasks and every day problems. Two years ago, when I moved to Timisoara, I started to write a special piece of writing. It is not a novel and maybe not even a conventional short story collection although it can be easier grouped in this category.

The first good news is that 2 months ago a publishing house accepted to publish it. My very first book will be published this year at Libris Editorial, a well-known publishing house from Romania.

I couldn’t tell you how thrilled I am. Actually, I cannot believe this is happening for real. First, I have to take the book into my hands and feel the texture of the pages, the smell of the ink print, to read again my writings. Then yes, I will believe it.

Another good news, especially for my foreign friends, is that this book will be bilingual. I wrote all the texts in Romanian and English also. And yes, I really feel that even the English texts kept the beauty and the message of those in Romanian. I will not tell you more now, just let you discover everything about it at the right moment.

The surprise was even bigger when I was notified (and this convinced me that yes, 2019 is the year of new beginnings) that I also won a short story contest so one of my short story will be published, along with other short stories, in a book called “Memento – The most beautiful Ploiesti” – a project about my home town, Ploiesti.

I will tell you more about these 2 books: when will they be launched, how you can buy them, if you want, at the right moment. I really hope people will read my writings and see in them something special, something that will inspire and resonate with them, something that will help them move forward or just live beautifully – because, in my opinion, that’s what it is about in writing.

P.S: For all of you who kept on asking me if this book is about endometriosis the answer is no 😊. Not yet! 😉

RO: Intotdeauna mi-am dorit sa scriu o carte. Apoi, cand am simtit ca nu exista loc pentru mine in literatura romaneasca si ceea ce se cere acum pentru a avea succes, mi-am indreptat atentia catre scenarii. Un drum mult, mult mai greu si un domeniu pe care nu il pot studia pe cat de mult mi-as dori si in cadrul caruia nu am avut mare succes, cu exceptia, poate, a unui loc 2 la un concurs de scenarii scurte. Totusi, printre sarcinile de la serviciu si greutatile de zi cu zi, am continuat sa scriu. Acum doi ani, cand m-am mutat in Timisoara am inceput sa scriu texte ceva mai speciale. Nu le pot numi “roman” si poate nici “povestiri scurte” conventionale desi cred ca s-ar incadra cumva in aceasta a doua categorie. Vestea buna este ca o editura din Romania a acceptat sa publice aceasta carte. Prima mea carte va fi publicata in acest an la Libris Editorial, o editura cunoscuta din Romania.

Nu va pot spune cat de fericita sunt. De fapt, nici nu realizez ca asta chiar se intampla. Intai, trebuie sa tin cartea in maini, sa simt textura paginilor si mirosul lor, sa citesc din nou textele…

O alta veste buna, in special pentru prietenii mei din alte tari, este ca am scris textele acestei carti atat in romana, cat si in engleza. Si da, chiar cred ca si variantele in engleza pastreaza frumusetea si mesajul celor din romana. Nu va spun mai multe, ci va las sa descoperiti toate detaliile, la momentul oportun.

Surpriza a fost cu atat mai mare cand am fost instiintata (iar asta m-a convins ca da, 2019 este anul noilor inceputuri) ca am castigat si un concurs de povestiri, iar povestirea mea va fi publicata, alaturi de alte 7 povestiri, intr-o colectie numita “Memento – Cel mai frumos Ploiesti” – un proiect despre orasul meu natal, Ploiesti.

La momentul potrivit va voi spune mai multe despre aceste doua carti: cand vor fi lansate, cum le puteti cumpara, daca doriti etc. Chiar sper ca scrierile mele sa fie citite, iar cititorii sa gaseasca in ele ceva special, ceva care sa ii inspire si cu care sa rezoneze, ceva care sa ii ajute sa mearga inainte sau doar sa traiasca frumos. Pentru ca, din punctul meu de vedere, despre asta este vorba in scris.

P.S: Pentru toti cei care m-au intrebat daca aceasta carte semnata de mine este despre endometrioza, raspunsul este nu. Nu inca! 😉
