Oh, so you’ve stumbled upon my little universe. Let’s get to know each other.
Well, for starters. My name is not Kate. I’m not a writer. I’m not a Mrs. And I’m definitely not as reckless as you would expect.
So who am I and what am I doing here?
To answer the first half of the question: I am a 20-year-old creature with an undying love for the English language–a love that brought me to choosing English Philology at university. I was born and raised in Narnia, also known as Poland, and that’s why my real name is Katarzyna, which is too long, too formal and probably too complicated to pronounce for you non-Polish speaking folks, so you’re all welcome to call me Kate.
And as to what I’m doing, the answer is simple: like most of us, I’m trying to figure things out. And in the meantime, I like to create people who don’t exist and complicate their lives (unless I’m too busy complicating my own). I observe things and produce strange thoughts 24/7. My mind’s always busy with something and writing is both my safe haven and a fast lane to insanity.
I’m pretty sure I’ve been writing ever since I learned to hold a pen and before that happened, I was probably already writing in my head.
And yet–I feel like I still haven’t earned the privilege to call myself a writer.
Which solves the question of why I’m here. And since you happen to be here at the same time as well (what an absolutely amazing coincidence, isn’t it?), please feel free to enter my world of controlled and reasonable recklessness. I can’t promise you everything will make sense here, but I’ll do my best to keep it interesting.
Only one question remains. Why Mrs Reckless? Well. You’ll probably find it disappointing, but there’s no deeper thought behind it. It’s just a nickname borrowed from a song Reckless by You Me At Six, one I was absolutely loving at the time of creating this blog.
Disappointing, I know. But I’m a strong believer that there isn’t a thing that cannot be fixed with a little dose of fiction–and for that you can head here. (It’s always a good time for self-promotion, right?)
Mrs Reckless is someone I’m hoping to become. On this blog, I don’t want to be quiet and careful–though there still tend to be the quiet periods, when I’m too lazy or too uninspired to post, and sometimes I’m still too careful and uncertain, wondering for ages whether or not I should just hit “publish”. On this blog, I want to take risks and see what happens, I want to scream loud and be heard.
