My Blog

Hi! And welcome to my blog.

Here you can find examples of my writing progress on the different short stories and novels that I am writing, excerpts of my work, articles and flash fiction scattered all around. The topics I talk about are wide and diverse, but they tend to focus on Literature and stories.

Don’t be shy to comment, ask and share my work with the whole world 🙂

I want to post a brief text about the Star Wars stamps I just found in Portugal. I saw the announcement on the Star Wars fanpage of Facebook, in Portuguese. What is this?! The announce was really short, just a photo, a short sentence and where to buy them, the Portuguese Mailing Services, known as...

Red Moon

It was near the midnight when the moon rose in the sky. There were no clouds to be seen, yet there was a sense of cover up over our heads, like if something could protect us with an incorporeal body. The dark of the sky quickly turned into vivid colours and rays, beams and beacons...

Adaptations, yes or no?

Since I was a kid, I have heard a lot about this very topic, with opinions against and in favor of the creation and use of adaptations. Mainly about books. Since the arrival of the Internet to our lives, these opinions have get kind of… p Powerful (a nice polite way to say crazy AF,...

The Girl from Shibuya

Tonight is not my night 

Some weeks ago, I wrote a few words in my diary. At the time, they seemed accurate for my state, fitting perfectly to what I was feeling. And, in fact, it is what I was feeling, but they were not accurate. Those words were these: “I have only managed to write 500 words today. I...

Open for Holidays

The year had ended and a new season unfolded in front of her eyes. The air smelled fresh and warm, with the leftover flowers still filling the fragance with infinite colours and tones. Happiness was the dress and the hair was free, wild and made out of gold. The future threw at her freedom and...

Who I Am

Know a little about me!

My name is Victoria and I am a writer. Or, at least, I am working to be a professional one in a near future. I love stories in any form or shape, from Literature (including narrative, poetry, drama), to movies, videogames… I do also love analysing all these types of stories, with an academic background of Literary Criticism.

I started writing when I was 11 and I found it so amazing I knew at that time that I wanted to be a writer, and I have worked on it since then. I am currently writing my second ever novel, with a bunch of short stories also as WIPs.

I try to analyse and think about any aspect in life, and then I try to reflect all of my thoughts and experiences on my writing work. And this blog of mine is just another aspect and platform in which I can share what happens in my busy mind with the world.

I hope you like my posts and let me know any question, doubt or suggestions in the “Contact Me” section!
