Every time I tell people I’m an author, they ask what kind of books I write. I guess I’m supposed to answer them with a genre; fantasy, horror, romance or maybe science fiction. It annoys me every time. Why do I have to limit myself and my art by putting myself and my work within boundries? I write good stories, isn’t that good enough?

When I’m done, feel free to put my book within your own boundries. But for now, let me out! Let me be free!

About Magdalena Wiklund

Leg. biomedicinsk analytiker och maker. Arbetar med transfusionsmedicin till vardags, forskar på antibiotikaresistens på fritiden. Jag skapade Sveriges största site för biomedicinska analytiker därför att detta verkligen är ett fantastiskt yrke som jag hoppas att fler ska intressera sig för.

  1. That’s what you should tell them, that you write good stories.

  2. No artist, whether a wordsmith or from any other art form should have to set boundaries to his/her art. Justifying art is like putting a Van Gogh painting such as “Les Tournesols” behind a window pane in a dark room to protect it from thieves and for the sole benefit of a so-called expert/collector…

    Explanation and ordering in this and that box are cheap tricks to avoid imagination contaminating the rest of the world…

    So you go and tell them: “what do you care?” because if someone asks you what genre you are writing, that someone does not know anything – nor care ^_^ When people do not understand they need labels to feel safe 😛

    Loved the book/movie poster you used to illustrate your words… perfect fit I thought 😉
