Vogen, The Creator

Books & books & books & books.

People ask me what it’s like to create a world.

Well, it looks like this.

This stack of notebooks is hundreds of pages of life. It’s doodles, and sketches, and ideas, and timelines, and sharp words, and broken hearts, and gender-swaps, and intimate connections, and things that seem like but can’t be coincidences.

In here are people and stories and lives and a world that has taken years to actualize. It takes work and imagination and stupid passion and even more work, and even even more paper, ink and blood.

As I reach the end of writing this first volume of The Weirdos, I sit back and watch the world fight back against its creator.

It’s exciting, it’s terrifying, and it’s life.

So what is it like to create a world?

If it’s ever done, I’ll tell you.
