It's coffee and wine for me, please ))

Oh well, and a cake too 😁 

Hi all! / Bonjour! / Privet!

2020 was... an amazing year for me personally! First lockdown in France kicked me into the deep reflection mood. And I finally managed to silence a self-doubt monster. We were waltzing around for 15 years, my longest relationship. Anyways, I decided to get serious about writing and to aim at getting published.

I write female-driven stories. Literary fiction and noir are my genres. Stereotyping and stigmatising are themes I love to explore and play around with. At the moment, I'm digging deep into the "childless egoist" label society plasters on women. 

Currently in the pipeline: I finished a short story which I'm adapting into an animated short film script. Short screenplay is in the works along with a podcast script. An outline for a noir novel is here too. 

Seems like a lot, but 1) I can't focus on one thing (impossible, I tried everything) and 2) I wasted to much time already!

Happy to be here! Looking forward to everything ))

  • I’m pleased to meet you Victoria. I am very impressed at all you’ve got done. I too find it impossible to focus on one thing but it doesn’t mean I get lots of things done, only started or dreamed about! Perhaps I should try your trick and have coffee with my wine! Welcome to the Townhouse. We’re all a little nuts but lovely.😀

    • I'm pleased to meet you too, Kate! Well, dreaming is also a huuuuuuuge part of my routine 😁 I'm looking around the Townhouse and I love what I'm seeing!

    • Welcome Victoria! Coffee and wine for me would be like getting on the up and down escalator at the same time.

      • Thank you! Haha, well coffee doesn't have an energising effect on me, so I devour 5 cups/daily. Perhaps, it's my Armenian part: I guess we all got coffee infusion at our birth. 

        Now, wine is the other story 😁

        Your work on the "childless egoist" label sounds very interesting, look forward to reading more about it on here!

        • Hi Alison, 

          Thank you! The topic of stereotyping is very interesting for me, I love exploring it through my own experiences and stories I heard from my friends.

          • Bonjour! (That's about the extent of my French, apologies if I mis-advertised myself)

            Welcome to the Townhouse! I'm relatively new too, and started with the coffee and cake. I progressed to wine in the evening, though.

            This is a brilliantly diverse and wonderful place to visit. Everyone here is very helpful and knowledgeable. I look forward to hearing more about your projects, they sound extremely interesting.

            Good luck,

            Rachel

              Yes, I'm already enjoying the atmosphere of the Townhouse! Looking forward to finding more and connect with writers. 

              Good luck with your projects too! 

              PS: wine in the evening, yeah!
