Scrabble tiles on a ‘found’ wall of wood. That’s all a story really is, isn’t it? A beginning, a middle and an end? What makes a story? What makes a good story? Are women’s stories different from men’s stories?

Here’s my poem Fairy Tales Are Lies to go with the image.

Created with my own photographs in Photoshop, no stock used.


bulleseye, target, wood, peeling paint, scrabble tiles, words, story, beginning, middle, end, blue, letters, photo manipulation, altered art, sybille sterk, magpiemagic, textures, grunge

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
