Storytelling: When the Character Suffers

Recently, while having lunch with a friend, she asked me if I found it hard to write about sex.

Her question got me thinking about what I do find difficult. And I recalled the extreme anxiety that I felt when reading some of the chapters in Elizabeth George’s What Came Before He Shot Her and Donn... Read more of this blog post »

Thursday, 18th April -- I'm willing to bet when the rebuilding of Notre Dame is completed, it will look exactly the same -- I loved the video of the interior -- and the beautiful stained glass windows still intact.
Today is gorgeous here, the sun so bright your eyes need SPF 30.

Gallinas, lobos y corderos

Atacaron de noche, de la ciudadela venían y eran muchos. Ya en aquel entonces era una fortaleza imponente, y pronto contaría con el más triste y célebre de los ejércitos.

No fue difícil para ellos vulnerar la aldea, matar a quienes se oponían, y luego robarse lo más preciado. Yo fui de los afortu...

Running to the Muse

I once attended a ThrillerFest conference featuring author John Sandford, who offered some basic advice: “Write. Just write.” I’m paraphrasing here but essentially he said, “When you treat writing as a job, there’s no time for writer’s block.” The prolific novelist is 74, has won a Pulitzer Prize...

it will usually be because of one of two things.

If it’s the second one,

Varanasi Poem: Time and Life to Death

Filth, they call it ubiquitous;

obnoxious. On streets,

in heaps, in lanes, scattered.

Life goes daily, usually on,

oblivious of filth,

or death,

goes on with ease.

Unfettered feet, undaunted –

of pilgrims, of people,

with purpose, or strollers

The timeless lanes,

narrow, space ampl...
