Ilustracion hecha con colores. Ispirada en la historia “creacion o destruccion” y en este fragmento.
He estado deprimida ultimamente, pero al volver a leer tan linda historia me a dado animos y me ha ispirado para dibujar. ¡Ink al rescate!
I feel like I need to tip more people when I come across really excellent writing of anything I’m interested in.
Is that as common to do in comparison to tipping people for making amazing artwork/art commissions or no? Either way does that help keep ya’ll who are writers motivated the same way it would a traditional/digital artist other then just comment feedback/favs?

A Place For Us is a contemporary novel written by Fatima Farheen Mirza; it’s the first book published by Sarah Jessica Parker’s new imprint, SJP for Hogarth. The story follows the lives of an Indian-American Muslim family living in California; the family consists of a father Rafiq, mother Layla, eldest daughter Hadia, Huda the middle child and Amar the brother and youngest sibling who in the story decides to leave their family home. The story unfolds when Hadia is marrying someone she has chosen herself who happens to not be from the same sect, and Amar returns for her wedding, he sees his family for the first time in three years. For me there are three central characters: Layla, Hadia, Amar. Layla immigrates to America and starts a new life with Rafiq, and she does so under her parents’ wishes to comply with this arrangement that they’ve made on her behalf. As the eldest daughter, Hadia has to not only set a good example for her siblings but also be a good caretaker to her siblings when her parents need her to be. For most parts, it’s Amar who needs all the help he can get and Hadia steps in and gains his utmost trust. Amar embodies the role of the outcast in the family, in that he can’t seem to fit in their family picture because he questions a lot of things, for example the religion, and this upsets his father so there’s tension in the father-son relationship which Mirza explores. The story not only explores the theme of family but also male and female dynamics as well as Indian and islam-influenced cultures. Moreover, love is a reoccurring theme and there’s different kinds of love within the story, from romantic, familial, and friendships. I can definitely see a resemblance to Layla and Majnun’s love story with the relationship between Amar and Amira, very well done!
The story is written in four parts, and in each part we see the characters reveal themselves and they are shown for who they, and this is done mainly through backstory - the narrative backstory and how the characters are affected by their past in the present. I personally love when stories build character development using backstory, for me the flow feels natural and I’m naturally intrigued to know more about the characters. The characters also feel real to me, in that they don’t try to be the hero or victim, they just are who they are. I also thought that by telling the story through unfolding this family unit, there isn’t a main character because we see the characters as parts of a whole. I also favour this method of storytelling because I for one find myself more interested in character development as opposed to plot development. I love the depth that this book went to in order to tell the story of this wonderful fictional family that I feel much love for, it’s incredible!
10/10! I cannot recommend this book enough, great storytelling, amazing character development, fantastic plot that draws you in and pulls you closer to the characters.

What exasperates me is the useless notion that I can execute a plot on paper just because I saw a dream about it. Like yeah,I write scenes in my head and all but sometimes… It just doesn’t look right on the paper! Darn it.
