welcome to my ink blot kingdom
hello, my name is melanie (or just mel, if you please).
♡ i write stories, tend gardens and drink far too much tea ♡
♡ i believe in magic and daydreams and spend rather a lot of time staring moodily out of windows ♡
♡ i serve beauty, simplicity and live-lived-slowly ♡
writer :: magic-keeper :: fire-raiser
i believe we are meant for joy. i aspire to a life-more-analogue. i'm desperately fond of tea and have a weakness for old books, old typewriters and old roses.
INFJ :: Aries-sun, Gemini-moon :: HSP :: Enneagram 4/5 :: Ravenclaw
this is where i write about my journey towards a simpler life and of the magic of ordinary things; of ravens and roses; permaculture, poultry and the unseen realms.
i write urban fantasy and magical realism around themes of place, belonging and ecofeminism. i believe that stories ought to serve as both comfort and escapism but should, above all other things, restore our belief in wonder and delight.
