The best way to deal with writer's block is to keep writing. Sometimes I write about something completely unrelated to my current book. That can actually help me get ideas for my current book. I also try to make sure to take care of myself. If I'm tired from writing too long, I stop and rest. Recharge my batteries. I make sure to get plenty of food and non-alcoholic beverages. I don't drink alcohol due to health conditions. Sometimes I go somewhere for a change of scenery. Being out can also get me ideas.(less)

I think it's seeing ideas that I've had floating in my head finally on a computer screen, and then paper. When I finished the first draft in November 2014, I printed it out on hard copy. That made it seem more real. I finally had finished the first draft. I knew I had a lot to do after that, but I felt a great sense of accomplishment.(less)

A lot of games are played in corporate America. The author focuses on three. First is blocks, played at the beginning level. The focus is on creativity. The second is chess, which is played at a higher level. This focuses on skill, anticipating your opponent's... Read more of this blog post »

Good introduction

Note: See your doctor before starting this or any other diet program.

When I first heard about Paleo diets, I thought it was just about eating meat all the time. I saw reports on TV of people eating stacks of meat, and not much else.

“If you look for perfection, you'll never be content.”

John F. Kennedy
“I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it's because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it's because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came.

[Remarks at the Dinner for the America's Cup Crews, September 14 1962]
John F. Kennedy

Lisa Scottoline
“I can't stand just sitting here not doing anything. You can't solve a problem by remote control.”
Lisa Scottoline, Every Fifteen Minutes

“Mermaids - those half-human, half-fish sirens of the sea — are legendary sea creatures chronicled in maritime cultures since time immemorial. The ancient Greek epic poet Homer wrote of them in The Odyssey. In the ancient Far East, mermaids were the wives of powerful sea-dragons, and served as trusted messengers between their spouses and the emperors on land. The aboriginal people of Australia call mermaids yawkyawks – a name that may refer to their mesmerizing songs.

The belief in mermaids may have arisen at the very dawn of our species. Magical female figures first appear in cave paintings in the late Paleolithic (Stone Age) period some 30,000 years ago, when modern humans gained dominion over the land and, presumably, began to sail the seas. Half-human creatures, called chimeras, also abound in mythology — in addition to mermaids, there were wise centaurs, wild satyrs, and frightful minotaurs, to name but a few.

But are mermaids real? No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found. Why, then, do they occupy the collective unconscious of nearly all seafaring peoples? That’s a question best left to historians, philosophers, and anthropologists.”
