Deliciously enlightening where writing is concerned, scathingly self-righteous where fellow writers are discussed.

1. Take care of yourself. Sleep well, eat well, exercise well.

2. Be a genuinely nice person to yourself and others. It doesn't matter if you can discharge 1000000 megawatts of sex energy from your mudra if you're

The main difference between authentic self-help books and patchworked once is in the authors. Authors who don’t practice what they preach speak empty words. They leave no marks on their audience’s memories. The example of books written by false teach ...more

When a jaded writer takes on huge ideas, the first thing they do unto those ideas is to distill them down to its atomic elements: boy meets girl, girl loses boy, girl…is a powerful demon princess who watches the centuries pass-by without a hinge or a ...more

On one side, there's a market for this kind of romance. Dark billionaire, BDSM scenes, ambitious heroine who is not a pushover.

On the other, this same market has a strict word count limit, a tight deadline cycle, and low cost production room. That i

Salah satu bukti kecakapan menulis adalah kesan ringan yang dirasakan sepanjang bacaan. Kesan bahwa karya ini dapat dimengerti dan dihayati di saat kita paling membutuhkan fiksi: sebagai alat hiburan.

I’m listening to this in my dad’s rural village. I’m listening to this because everything about this book, these series, the voice that’s reading the audiobook, are safe. All safe. Safe as cribs. Safe as faithful expectancy. Safe as Stephen Fry’s emb ...more

Even with that articulate language, I was blinded by the WHITENESS of this middle-aged, Christian, suburban version of Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, Love”. The whining, hyperbolic navel glaring.

Oh. God.

Neil Gaiman
“I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing.”
Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones

Milan Kundera
“Happiness is the longing for repetition.”
Milan Kundera

Leah Hager Cohen
“There is nowhere morning does not go.”
Leah Hager Cohen, Glass, Paper, Beans: Revolutions on the Nature and Value of Ordinary Things

Haruki Murakami
“That's why I like listening to Schubert while I'm driving. Like I said, it's because all his performances are imperfect. A dense, artistic kind of imperfection stimulates your consciousness, keeps you alert. If I listen to some utterly perfect performance of an utterly perfect piece while I'm driving, I might want to close my eyes and die right then and there. But listening to the D major, I can feel the limits of what humans are capable of - that a certain type of perfection can only be realized through a limitless accumulation of the imperfect. And personally I find that encouraging.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
