This months “one to watch” is the stunning account of, Lilly Sparks Words ǀ @lillysparkswords.
Lilly, heralds from Derbyshire in the UK, England. Now 25 she has been writing from an early age, as she explains:
“Writing has been a part of me ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always been afraid to speak out and being a shy person, I discovered that writing down my feelings and thoughts could let people hear me, without me having to speak a word.
Writing is my way of life, it’s not just a passion, it’s a therapy and it’s my one true love, the only thing in life that hasn’t let me down, my words have healed me better than any person i know, ever has.
After everything I’ve been through in life, my writing has always seen me through and I’m grateful for my words to put a smile on at least one person’s face.
My writing is filled with magic, wonder and romance, my friends think I’m silly sometimes for believing in magic, but I don’t think there’s anything better to believe in, is there?”
Beautiful writing is encapsulated in every piece of Lilly’s writing. Her style is one of emotive short form with wonderful cadence and flow, but more than that each piece draws the reader into the tender mindset of the writer. Lilly, also uses the typewriter aesthetic to great effect and with a new and growing account, we expect to see big things from her.
This is definitely an account to watch and follow.
