I’m Vincent, and I write as a way of life.
I used to be a model student once, but I lost interest in formal education at some point. You won’t find me on LinkedIn.
I spend the better part of my day writing and reading: books, almost poems, articles, blogs.
Not for wealth, fame, or immortality. But as a way of life.
I was a golden-haired child once. I used to play quietly on my own instead of going out to play with kids my age. The world outside my house seemed so large and uncertain.
Judging from my grades, I was set to become an airplane engineer or something practical like that. But then adolescence got in the way. My father died. I lived away from my mother for a time. I lost interest in school and I took to video-gaming; romantic woes kept piling up.
I became withdrawn and began visiting rooftops, from where I contemplated the shapes of clouds above the uncertain horizon.
And then I stumbled upon some English books. I discovered the simple joy of reading and taught myself English so I could write about all things in the world.
Now I can spell out floccinaucinihilipilification without a spellchecker.
But the most important thing you should know about me is that…
At some point, I stopped trying to fit into the world and made myself my best friend.
That’s how I became a writer.
A Few Facts About Me
- I have a digital drawer full of manuscripts nobody has ever read
- I hope my work will be discovered posthumously, though I may publish one or two books during my life
- Part-time freelance writer and vegetarian
- Short, frail, pale, shy, and usually polite, but sometimes mercurial and fierce
- Have read One Hundred Years of Solitude in English about 14 times
- Don’t have a TV and don’t plan to get one
- Somewhat of a recluse
- 100% Romanian despite the wistful Anglicization of my name: my real name is Vincentiu
- Have read the Oxford Dictionary and Thesaurus up to page 452, word by word, and now I cannot remember a single definition.
- Could be dying faster than other people (but then as a writer, an early death could be a professional advantage, don’t you think?)
