Hoy voy a escribir una entrada algo diferente, porque me siento muy onírica. Me gustaría hablar de los sueños y la creatividad, pero no conozco mucho el tema.

I can write pretty much anywhere, with or without distractions. I can write to music or watching television. I've written at Chuck E. Cheese, surrounded by insane munchkins hyped up on pizza and sugar.
But editing? I need silence or instrumental music when I'm editing. I n... Read more of this blog post »

Your marketing game is outta whack.
First and foremost, you gotta market the fuck out of a book before it’s published. You have to build the hype. You have to get people invested in that release day. Once the release day hits, you celebrate it like it’s Christmas. THIS BOOK IS RELEASED. IT’S THE B...Read more of this blog post »

I realize I have not written much about homework the last few years. Not because it is not worth writing about, but because I do not really give it.

When I was a kid I wanted to be Sheila. She was afraid of dogs, reluctant to swim, and a brat to her family, but she saw the world in an original way. Her closet could become an elevator; she yearned for a rug that looked like a rose; she laughed at the world's stupidity. She was real and fun.
