I like this word a lot; it’s a fun way to illuminate a character’s hostility.
I used it in You May Kiss the Bride, in a scene during which my protagonists, Livia Stuart and Gabriel Penhallow, are discussing his high-handed decision that theirs is to be a marriage in name only. Livia says:

Mười mấy năm trước mình từng xem và thích Trần Khôn qua 02 bộ phim: Bản Tình Ca Trong Mưa (Như sương như mưa lại như gió) và Kim Phấn Thế Gia. Lúc ấy, bản thân cũng chưa thành thục để hiểu hết mùi vị cay đắng trong tình yêu.

Simple. Direct. Chaos. Welcome to the Ruthless Beings World, where conversations are important, love has no limitations, and judging people on superficial things will only lead to trouble.

My daughter just turned 7 months old. Watching her grow up has been fascinating, and when I FaceTime her on the road, she reaches out now, trying to touch my face. It melts me every single time.

Satchel's father, Holland, was a fatalist. That didn't help either. But you lose a wife, a publishing contract, the will to write, almost all of your hair, and for a brief run of time even the ability to speak, it colors your soul. Holland's soul was like an overuse... Read more of this blog post »

It is impossible to fly your dog or cat into French Polynesia from the USA. I worked every angle and looked into every scenario to get my 4-pound, toy poodle to rejoin the boat this summer. He flew off the boat in Ecuador, which was an ordeal in itself. I could not have him aboard for the Marques...Read more of this blog post »
21મી સદીનો સૌથી વધું ચરચાતો પરશન અને સતરીજાતીની સતત અપાતી લડત કે અમે પૂરુષોની સમોવડી છીએ..! અને પૂરુષોની સતત એ મથામણ કે પૂરુષો વગર કદી સતરીનું અસતિતવ જ ના હોઇ શકે..! પણ આમાં સાચું કોણ..?

Differentiation: It’s one of those words that all teachers seem to use, but I wonder how many of us really feel confident doing well.
