Make Words Dance with Moleskin

by Roxanne C.

I was invited to the Make Words Dance Workshop by Moleskin, held at a little booth inside Kinokuniya, Ngee Ann City, Singapore. The task was simple and fun – make up a story and imprint it onto a Moleskin cahier using only any of the 150 stamps provided. At the end of the two-day workshop, all cahiers would be collected and exhibited in store somewhere (I’m still not sure where and when, but I’ll let you know when I do). I was missing the boyfriend, so I wrote a story about love.


With lovely Elrica!


And off I go! Selecting the stamps to use was pretty therapeutic, actually.


My story titled, “Love,” in the making.


Tadah! It’s finally done! Now for a picture and then to add to the collection of completed cahiers behind me.


And there you have it – my favourite page of my book!


I had a really fun time at the event. Writing is one of my first loves and will be for a long time. So you can imagine how happy I felt inside when I was invited to this event, and to write my own story, no less. Of course, it wasn’t something philosophical nor argumentative but with 150 stamps, you really don’t want to spend twenty hours coming up with a literature essay.


The topic of love only came to my mind when Elrica, the lovely babe who invited me, told me at the booth that I could write any story I wanted. With all the people I meet nowadays, and how delusional they are about love, I decided to write one filled with hope and maybe one day, someone will chance upon my story and remember that his or her life was once meaningful and simple. Thank you Elrica and Moleskin for having me attend the workshop!
