My story

Hello and welcome to my blog Diary of a Hippie Goth.

I’ve never been very good at talking about myself, so I’ll be very short.

My name is Chelo, I am 25 years old and I live in Valencia, where I had studied and, now, I work. I have a university degree in Multimedia and Digital Arts and I am currently studying a Master in Creative Writing. I am a great lover of art in all its forms; I am interested in writing, painting and photography, and that is what I dedicate all my time to. I consider myself a complicated person, a person of strong contrasts; but, first of all, a great dreamer and the greatest and most ambitious of my dreams is to be a writer.


My writings

If I have to mark a turning point that marked my obsession and passion for writing, it would be sometime in the fifth grade when I read “Treasure Island.” That fantastic, wild and passionate story reached me so deeply that, for a while, I wanted to be a pirate. Luckily, my dream soon turned to being a writer and I did not get to do the sea. From that moment I started writing, so as expected, I have a lot of stories and tales stored in the memory of my hard drive.

So far, I have written two novels and I am working on two others, I have a collection of more than ten short tales inspired by Gothic literature and a large number of poems that I am quite proud of. Even so and although it seems stupid I have never tried to publish any of them, I promise to get to it soon; but, in the meantime, you can read some of them in the “writing” category of the blog.


My blog

I have not been a blogger for a long time, but I can still say that it has become an important part of my life. As you know, I write, and starting a blog was just one more step in my great passion for writing, a step that allowed me to show the world small fragments of my stories and writings.

This blog is, in a way, the living reflection of the chaos that reigns in my head. Here I write about my daily life, my travels and my outfits, about the books I read and the occasional TV series, I share photographs and illustrations and, how could it be less, here I bring some of my stories to light and I talk about my projects of writing.
