Sara Dalengren Sara Dalengren's blog:

Kristina ställde en intressant fråga i en kommentar igår som fick mig att fundera. Hur skapar jag karaktärer och hur gör jag för att lära känna dem?

För det första så tänker jag mycket på karaktären ifråga. Jag funderar över hur den skulle reagera i olika situationer, hur den uttrycker sig och hu...

C.E.   Wilson C.E. Wilson's blog:

So far I’ve re-written the prologue through chapter 12. What is worrisome and fun and exasperating all at the same time, is when I come to a page that doesn’t have any marks on it. Did the editor miss something? Did I do something wrong and actually write a page correctly? How’d I do that? How ca...

I am! And thanks so much to everyone who’s responded so far—there’s been a great deal of interest in this, so much so I’m a bit overwhelmed to be honest, but other commitments have drained my time, energy and motivation to the point where I don’t feel like doing anything other than sleeping by th...

Michael Ripplinger Michael Ripplinger's blog:

“What’s your favorite book?” “What’s your favorite movie?” “Who’s your favorite music artist?” These are tough questions, and I can never give a single answer to any of them. But how about this one: “Who is your most favorite character in any story medium — book, movie, folk story, whatever?” Alt...

Aurora Rey Aurora Rey's blog:

Like most girls raised in the South (or GRITS, as we’re sometimes known), I was raised to be compliant. Smart, sure. Sassy, even. But when push comes to shove, don’t.

Don’t challenge the status quo. Don’t challenge your elders. And whatever you do, for the love of God, don’t make others uncomfort...

Question:

When I got hired at my company, the human resources department interviewed me and sent me into my now boss’ office for a “final interview.” He asked only one question, if I knew how to “run interference” for my supervisor. I answered, “Absolutely, I’m the mom of a football player, and k...

I was living in a small town when I got my interview calls with no access to coaching classes or the Internet.


On the day before the first interview, I went to a coaching expert in Calcutta. He told me I spoke too fast and my answers didn’t have any m...

Elle Caruso Elle Caruso's blog:

Hai nascosto tanto bene i tuoi sentimenti

che neanche tu riesci più a ritrovarli

Sepolti come un tesoro

In qualche punto della tua spiaggia privata

Intorno alla quale hai eretto un muro

Che vigili a vista

Con sentinelle sparse lungo il perimetro.

Non abbassi mai la guardia

Non permetti a nessuno di avvic...

August 2016


I sat at Caffe Greco, staring as the raindrops dissolved into puddles. It was a picturesque day—if people still used that word. I didn’t know. I didn’t know anything about this place.


I tried to think about how I got here, how or even why. There were so many things he hadn’t told me...
