The paper is devoted to the creation and function of description in the prose by the author, as well as about the mutual relations between the categories of description and storytelling. The function and structure of description is compared to the childhood game niebko (also known as a sekret), referring to the title of one of her novels (Niebko, 2013). The author considers the (not only artistic, but also psychological) genesis of the dominance of description in her prose. She points out the methods which she used to “liven up” descriptions in her prose, so that it is not too static and “boring”. She considers descriptions as a tool to “deepen” experiencing her own existence, as well as that of the reader – and so their mystical and therapeutic aspect.
