Oh the Pretty…

First, can I just say that I see irony in the fact that my last post was about the anger I'm dealing with and this one is about pretty fingernails... I guess I'm a woman of layers.

Anyway, several years ago, I got into in to Jamberry nails. There was something about the paradox of tending goats wi... Read more of this blog post »

MCU Phase Four

Marvel unveiled Phase Four, which will contain six movies and four TV shows (all sadly on Disney Plus, so you'll have to pay extra for them...admittedly it's tempting at this point, with them being in continuity. Dang you).

I'm gonna stick to the movies.

Histoires parisiennes


Rester à Paris durant la saison estivale n’a jamais été un souci pour moi car (je sais, je le répète chaque année) j’apprécie le ralentissement de rythme dans la capitale et cette ambiance « vacances » qui y règne. Quel plaisir fut donc de découvrir que le BHV MARAIS met à l’honneur en ce moment...

Call Me Twice – Paula Abdul 900 Number (1980s)

One could argue that greed is just a fact of the 1-900 number life, that the entire business exists to give as little entertainment as possible for as much money as possible. There are no charitable 900 number services that I’ve found, no services that prioritize the customer’s experience over th...

Our Deadly World of Post-War Politics

Although my main academic focus was theoretical physics, I always had a very strong interest in history as well, especially that of the Classical Era. Trying to extract the true pattern of events from a collection of source material that was often fragmentary, unreliable, and contradictory was a...

3 Ways to Help Hurting People Heal

My first picture of manhood was my grandfather, Jerod Hastings Rolle, who was also my larger-than-life superhero. And the most impactful words he ever spoke to me were, “Son, whatever you do, be a good man.”  I had no idea those would be the last words my grandfather would ever speak to me again...

Keeping it Real (Enough to be Believable)

Even though fiction is, by definition, a story that describes imaginary events, places, and people, and, anecdotally, the writer is only limited by his imagination, the story still has to be believable.

This means that the rules within the story (no matter the genre) have to make sense.

VEGAS, BABY! In which Bad Girl explains how an imaginary Vegas hotel rocks the latest Goddaughter

By Melodie Campbell
Whether to use a real setting or make one up?  That is the question.
Butchering Shakespeare aside (which I do cheerfully, if not cleverly) all authors have to decide whether to set their novel in a real place or not.  There are advantages and disadvantages to each.

Тюленуване

Ние сме тюлените.
Последни,
Останали на този бряг.
В сърцата – романтици безнадеждни,
Не ще ни сребролюбци разберат.





Ние сме поетите, поредни.
Късче усмивка дай ни и летим.
Стиховете в пясъци безследни,
На всяка следваща вълна шептим.

От катерачите на Камен бряг,

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
