INSIDE THE MIND OF AGATHA CHRISTIE
I think the reason that I always loved Agatha was because, as she said “I don’t like messy deaths … I’m more interested in peaceful people who die in their own beds and no one knows why.” ‘She was a curious young girl that often suffered “episodes” which alienated her from other children. (It was later determined by neurological experts that these “episodes” were Epileptic seizures)’
ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE
Now, one of the world’s most beloved authors; known as the “Queen of Crime. Her plots are possible, logical, and always new.” She shows us an apparently impossible situation and we go mad wondering ‘How can this be happening?’ Then, slowly, she reveals how the impossible is not only possible but the only thing that could have happened.”
HOW AGATHA CHRISTIE DUNNIT What was the secret to Agnes’s success? she had a ‘trait’ of epilepsy, the ‘hypergraphic-ness’ Writing her way through stresses, of times, using her imagination, became easier to define. A curse or a gift, what do you read? a talent for words came easily, in deed. It was her purpose and passion, to create, to pick up her pen, before it was too late. An addiction for writing, her insights to express, sharing puzzles with others, as a means to de-stress. Victoria Healing ~ 14.9.2021 How Agatha Christie Dunnit
WHERE HER CREATIVITY CAME FROM
(Temporal Lobe) Epilepsy in inborn writers, is shown to result in a behavioural phenomenon called Hypergraphia. The tendency toward extensive and, in some cases, compulsive writing.
I absolutely understand her addiction, as I have the same attribute.
