I believe this to the deepest core of my being: If you want to be a writer, you CAN. All you have to do is start putting words on a page. Don't let anyone--especially you--tell you you're not good enough. Here's a piece that came out today in the local paper ahead of the publication day for FAMOU... Read more of this blog post »

Jette Harris Jette Harris's blog:

One of the most difficult things to pin down as a writer, especially a NEW writer, is the pacing of your story. Pacing is the speed and rhythm of a story, the speed with which events take place, and the balance between each part of the story. Does the story start with a hook? Is the beginning too...

The public lynching of the most powerful civilian leader is at its culmination. The military is fed up of Nawaz Sharif and is doing all it can to subjugate, humiliate, and subvert the principal beneficiary of the system installed by them.

Detours that get you nowhere close to where you wanted to be in the first place.

And sometimes these detours can be so big and confusing that you'll get lost along the way and never really...

В голубом дыму "Дуная"

Появляются подружки
