Dear Mohamed what’s is your routine at the Moment?
I am currently working on my master’s thesis on radical feminism in the Moroccan women’s story. It’s a long and exhausting topic… and it needs a deep analysis… so I’m working hard.
Besides that there is writing stories. I try to maintain a yearly routine in writing stories. I try to be as different as possible in writing. All I do is follow the passion that gives my life meaning.
what’s not particularly important for all of us?
I think stopping wars, in Syria, Ukraine, Yemen, woo… war is terrible. Then deal seriously with real world problems such as climate deterioration, nutrition, international politics… We have to deal seriously. Sometimes I feel the world’s population is living behind phones: on Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok… forgetting the real world problems.
new start, new beginning, what will be essential and wish riles will literature, art play?
The role of literature is important and effective, but I do not believe that literature can change the world. These are exaggerated utopian ideas… But literature will make us more humane, more accepting of each other.. especially in Arab countries, or a country like Morocco, where the influence of literature is almost non-existent. … We in Morocco live in cultural corruption… Literature, or art, must change its owner before thinking of changing the world.
what do you currently reading ?
I am a chaotic reader, I switch from one text to another.. but I read now “ The Norwegian Wood“ by Haruki Murakami, I love this genius. I’m also thinking of re-reading „The Bell jar“ by Sylvia plath.
wish quote, text will you propose to us?
“ I write in order not to forget, to keep things alive in the heart and in the mind“.
Mohamed Khalfouf/ Morocco.
