High Ambitions

[image error]


Maggie Greene walked through the school’s lobby, bold as hot molasses on cold grits. Many of the students were waiting in that old, dusty lobby, lingering outside their classroom doors until the clock struck 8:19. There were no warning bells in the Clayton Elementary school. It was...

The Time Traveler

Oh to go back in time. What if we had the DMC DeLorean Dr. Emmett Brown and Marty McFly used to travel through time in Back to the Future? We could go back and see all the places we left wisdom laying, the places we could have learned valuable lessons, but, for one reason or another, we chose to...

Warning: Writing is bad for readers

[image error]

Aside from cutting my free time short, writing has affected my reading habits in a lot of different ways, and they aren’t all nice.

Back in the day, I’d pick up a book and just read until I reached the other cover – I’d even read the copyright statement, acknowledgement, biography...

Mo Yan: Hvidløgsballaderne

Det, der gør bogen så speciel, er, udover sproget, at Mo Yan evner at skrive kærlighed og tragedie, realisme og fantastiske beskrivelser, satire, drømme, monologer, dialoger og minder i en uafbrudt strøm af ord, der uden pause eller ophold fremmaner historien som et fantastisk maleri for dit indr...

The Snafu that created a BLANK Blog Post (with a weird Ad) & the START of a complete Website & Blog redesign

For years I’ve wanted to move my website onto WordPress. The technology felt daunting and included moving my emails to a new program. But on Friday while trying to add more buttons in the black menu bar at the top of my WordPress blog site, I accidentally published a BLANK BLOG POST. I quickly wr...

The Halloriyaan

SO WHAT EXACTLY IS "THE HALLORIYAAN"?

It's an adaptation of the traditional Carpathian family record known as a Merequitus. Recorded in it are births, marriages, deaths and other important events in the family history. Carpathians also annotate their business deals and alliances. As with all Car... Read more of this blog post »

T is for Taylor Swift As I mentioned in my theme-reveal post, this month will be all about music and how it inspires my writing. I first got introduced to Taylor Swift when her music videos for “You Belong with Me” and “Love Story” got aired on TV. I liked the stories they told. So …

I’m a Special Helper

The dog and I took a walk this morning to our local Copenhagen bakery to pick up a couple loaves of their rye bread. It’s not a pretty walk. It’s a Los Angeles city street. Lots of concrete. Not a lot of trees. This bakery makes me happy, though, with its clean white facade and […]

How I Spent My Day, Two Years After. . .

zachary-sinclair-622997-unsplash.jpg













You’ve probably heard the writing advice: show, don’t tell. It sounds easier than it is sometimes. I would like to just write, “I’m sad! I hurt! Love is so so so hard!” and have you get exactly how I feel.

Alas, it does not work that way. A skilled writer knows this. Thus, I introduce you to Barb...

My family spent this past weekend in Oita prefecture (which you’ve seen if you follow my Instagram.). The trip was partly to spend time with my husband’s cousins and family, and partly to track down my father-in-law’s birthplace in rural Japan.  It was a whirlwind of kids and busses and hotels an...

What Does Success Mean to You?

Many texts on the subject of success begin by offering a
definition of the term or by encouraging the reader to think about what success
might mean to the individual. There is nothing wrong with that, at all. It is
naturally a good idea to properly define a goal before beginning to work
towards achie...

Book Review: The Disasters

They say never to judge a book by its cover. Unfortunately, I highly did with this novel. From the alluring book cover and catchy tagline, my expectations were too high. The Disasters follow the story of Nax and three other ‘burnouts’ who got kicked off the Academy. Only to collide with a life or... Read more of this blog post »

How to Use Apologetics to Glorify Jesus

Faith is wonderful, and doubt may not always be against it. Sometimes, it is the beginning of learning. New questions can be a good thing—the laying of foundation for faith.





When you hear something—an opinion, an argument, a gauntlet phrase—that makes you doubt what the Bible says, the best thing...

SUSHI YOSHITAKE

「介紹我一家最好的日本餐廳,在香港。」外國友人這麼問我。


從前,我一向抓抓腦袋,回答不出,最後嚅嚅地:「還是去日本吃吧。」


近來,真的有改變了,不去日本,也能吃到好的,像「佐瀨」、「田舍家」、「龍吟」等等,他們用的材料已比一般本土的店舖新鮮,日本通常一星期進貨二至三次,香港高級的每週六回,除了禮拜天市場不開。


和日本同樣等級的餐廳,已不是在香港開「分店」,而是把本店「移植」過來,從裝修、師傅到食材,都和日本的一模一樣,這才算吃得過。


另外一家沒有漢字招牌,叫「SUSHI YOSHITAKE」,原名寫起來是「吉武」。他們的總店一直是米芝蓮三星,香港的一間已有兩星。老闆兼大廚的吉武正博在東京和香港兩...

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
