My heart…

is where it should be.
Born and raised in Limburg, I swiftly put on my seven-league boots at age 25. After a stop of three years in Ghent I now enjoy the quiet life in Zomergem. The silence of the country life inspires me to write and together with my love I give bird watching a serious try. 

I work full time as a Copywriter and Community Manager at De Facto Image Building. Every day I represent various personas on different social media platforms. I write for a wide range of clients, into line or bold. To the point or narrative, both on- and offline. I believe every good story starts with listening. So when you talk, I carefully listen.

At my personal writing table I’m Stille Bliksem. From my own personal point of view I translate my observations into a column, while Stil Leven is an ode to the objects we cherish and the stories they carry within. I hope to grow as a writer and storyteller by choosing my words very carefully.

Silence is luxurious. I am a fan of words well chosen and love listening to songs and their lyrics. Amen (!) to Nick Cave and his followers. And thank you to all the picture-taking-creatures for the daily dose of inspiration. Each finding gets a special place in my online Wunderkammer. And once in a while, I disappear and lose track of life while watching movies like La meglio gioventù, Reconstruction, Ruby Sparks or Somewhere. But most times, I’m on the way. To the dream of true authorship and lovely writing jobs.

Yours truly, 
Katrien
