Imprint: v. to stay in your mind or memory.
I am back to writing; which is what is in my heart. It is the only true thing I find satisfying. It is also the only thing that relieves stress and relaxes me. There is just something about the way the characters, scenes and plots written down on the page; imprinted for the rest of time on a piece of paper that transports me.
This is honestly what my stories are. They are imprinted in my mind; written on my soul. I can close my eyes and watch each story unfold. As I begin to share my stories with you I hope that you will feel the same; and always remember them not as stories or fairy tales; but as imprints - K A Petentler
Some one once told me that my mind works so differently then any one else, that it would be impossible for someone to write my stories or concepts; before I do. It had been meant as a back handed remark; however, I take it as a compliment. It is also one of the reasons I enjoy writing.
I write to tell stories. I write the books that I wish I could read; but don't exist. I am working on a collection of stories: Imprints. I write in a different way which does not quite fit the fairytale genre; nor does it quite fit into the expected. As I wrote above; they are imprinted into my mind so I thought it would be more fitting to call them that; then anything else.
The easiest way to explain it; I do not write happily ever after's. Not to say that my stories never have a happy ending; just that I do not write for the happy ending. I also do not write for the satisfaction of a reader. (I feel like this needs to be explained: movies and books too often create the ending readers want to read; how the reader wants the characters to end up. "leaving the reader satisfied"; to me this makes life and books rather predictable; and leaves me, as a reader wanting more.)
I write to leave an Impression!
