“Be Mysterious: Writers in Masks” features Lua Fowles

A couple years ago I went Venice to attend the carnival! It was magical- walking through the narrow streets of Venice, surrendered by masks and the instant feeling of liberty took me over.
Being a writer means wearing lots of mask; I am the girl who is blind with love, the villain who wants revenge, the mother who lost her child even the angel of death, I wait for the darkest hour and collecting souls one by one…
I live in a city with many masks, Istanbul is my muse… I love its mosaic structure, how it’s the true bridge between Europe and Asia, bearing the traces of both cultures. It’s good to be me, I’m a writer with many masks and living in a city with many stories to tell…

  2. What a beautiful mask! And thank you for sharing a bit about yourself. Two places I desperately want to go: Venice and Istanbul. *sigh*

  3. Wonderful writing Lua. And historically a huge connection between Istanbul and Venice. Lovely piece: congrats to you and to Mercedes for coming up with the idea.

  4. Aww.. What a short paragraph! Wish it had been longer 😛

    Really beautiful words you have there! …And I think, the mysteriousness of it all makes readers very curious.
