About

Hello there. Welcome to “Girl with the Green Book”. I’m Maria and I write. This blog is basically a collection of “noted notions” of mine- just ideas, realisations and also, lots and lots of poetry.

I am a huge fan of spoken word and free verse, but I love to build on rhymes and themes as well.

A lot of my work revolves around mental illness, especially with poetry I feel like we need to be the most honest versions of ourselves to create real, important writing that is much needed in the world. My experience with depression and anxiety has always made writing feel like home to me. And by extension, this little corner of online content too.

Thank you for clicking on my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay here! Feel free to comment below for any suggestions, queries or simply to talk 🙂 Until next time!

      1. Yes it is, biggest adventure is diving into people and deciphering them 😀 Irrespective of whether you like the way they are or not. And mostly they are adorable. Humans are adorable.

  1. So your friend found my friend’s blog and led me to yours. And, I am so happy she did.
    We share SO much in common, starting from our names and birth-month (Mine’s 22)! And getting excited on things, knowing the middle child concept, observations, nights, seas, etc. [Though the diary I got from mom dad when I was six, was grey.] :’)
    Loving your ‘threads’ so far, hoping to read more. Yours looks like a wonderful blog! ^-^

    1. OMG OMG your name is Maria!!! I LOVE the fact that you came here and typed this comment, it made my day! 😀 Bless our friends 😛 Which friend btw?
      That’s awesome that we share all that especially birth months! And almost share dates too 😛 I love that you have what you have in common with me, it’s nice to know you! And pfftt My first diary was blue, it was more like a notepad, then I had a yellow diary for years can you believe that it was the weirdest shade! THEN came the green one. Now I also have a new green one ’cause the real one’s gonna finish soon and when I picked the name of the blog, I unknowingly signed an invisible contract to always have green diary or “book” to write.
      ANYWHO. Thank you for liking my threads! Hope you stay tuned for more work! 🙂

      1. Hahah, yes. We almost share our birth dates too. It’s equally nice to know you, Maria. God. Same names. Eeep. AND our history on diaries. Maaan I have had the same childhood in this regard. Like whenever ammi would go shopping, she’d get a small notepad for me. It was on my bday that they got me the grey one, which was my first official THICK book. And I still have it, though in kind of a bad shape, with so many awkward memories. xD So I totally understand the thing! And have still got two new ones though I don’t currently know what for. 😀 What did you use the yellow one for?

        It was your friend ‘miss mysterious’ (she is wonderful!) who found Ghalia’s blog and mine. That’s velanedebeaute. :3

        I will surely read more. I mean, with all that Maria-ish stuff, I’d love to! 🙂 Stay awesome

      2. Oh so you’re Ghalia’s friend. It was so nice meeting her too haha!
        Well a lot of things. The reason I keep calling it “book” and not diary is because it has never been restricted to only “Dear diary, so and so happened today. Actually now I’ve almost completely stopped these dear diary posts 😛 It’s more like drawings and sketches and scribbles and just random lists (I love making lists). The green one that I use these days is an evolved form of my yellow diary I’d say 😛 Cause now the lists are “Loves of my life”, “Lessons” and “Theories, etc. But han, addition of poems has been made. I didn’t write as much poetry when I was little as I do now. But the sketches and scribbles are still the same :’)
        And YEASSS best gifts are notebooks and candles. bas.
        I’m so glad you used “Maria-ish stuff” I am gonna throw this around so much now just you watch 😛
        You stay awesome too!

    1. I think its some wordpress problem. My brother and I have been trying to fix it. Nowadays many wordpress blogs are being blocked in Pakistan one by one I’ve heard quite a few people saying their wordpress was blocked. Lemme see what else I can do.

      1. Mixture of fantasy and reality, friendship and adventure, horror and humor, detective and mystery in short fiction. 🙂 Here are some I have read and enjoyed a lot 🙂
        Bridge to Terabithia
        The Secret of Crickley Hall
        Enchanted, Inc.
        The Alchemist
        Mummy Knew (kind of depressing)
        Kite Runner
        The Scarlet Letter (not bad, read it as a course book)
        And I still read Hardy boys from time to time 🙂
        Have you read any of these? What are your interests? In books I mean

      2. i sadly haven’t read any f these 😛 I want to read the Alchemist, and I have watched Bridge to Terabithia movie. 🙂 I basically love writing that is unlike anything I’ve read before but somehow still intrigues me. I just love reading all sorts of books 😛

      3. 🙂 Good for you.
        My passion for writing and reading go side by side.
        I just don’t like books which are based on history or are dry and dull. Pleasure reading should create pleasure right?

      4. exactly, mine does too. I started reading out of course material as soon as I learnt to read properly in grade 1 or 2. I used to try and read those difficult words in my grandma’s newspaper haha 😛 and I started writing when i was about 7 or 8 so kinda the same age i started both.

      1. That’s good to hear that you are fine. A break is good, no doubt. Take your time. Its just that a lot of bloggers are closing down their blogs…and I thought, not you too.
        You got such a talent with words, especially love & miss your “threads”. Now who would like someone like that to vanish? 😉
        Have a good day and stay safe!
