Reality is a relative concept

Recently I watched Inception again and I remembered the meaning of this movie, which is, “reality is a relative concept.” And so it got me thinking.

Secondary Characters

Today’s subject is about book characters. We all know how it goes. The main character in a book is the one whose story we follow, and as writers, the one we try to establish and make the reader care about him or her. He/she is the core of the book we are creating or the book we are reading, but our focus should not be on the main character all the time. A story consists of more characters, which are playing an important role too.

Multiple reading??!


Today’s post is about reading. I was on the internet, searching books and blogs and I noticed that there are people who read two books at the same time. Ok, it’s not something crazy and I know that it is common for some to read more than one books, but I am wondering…how someone can enjoy reading two books alongside?

Clouded thoughts


Well, there is this thing that I am facing lately that makes me feel a little off. It’s like when you wake up in a cloudy day and you feel tired, moody and a grey atmosphere surrounds you like the sight outside your window. I feel like a sunbeam hidden behind layers of clouds which just don’t let me shine. 

And the trouble is that I know what I need to do in order to change this…but it’s not really possible.

Editing Confusion



Today I want to talk to you about a confusion that takes place inside my mind. All started along with the editing I am currently doing for my first book DAZED. Until the fourth draft (which I am finishing now) everything was clear and I was confident and happy. Some time I decided to do two more drafts, as soon as I finish this one, but while I am getting closer, I am having second thoughts.

Impossible? Think again...

Nelson Mandela once said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” How true is this, right? We should never say that something isn’t going to happen because everything seems impossible until it’s done. Think about it.

The Host

Today I want to talk about The Host by Stephenie Meyer. As you can see, at the end of the page I have the review I had written for Goodreads and if you have read it, you will know how much I love this book. With few words, The Host, describes the invasion of aliens on earth, but it has nothing to do with other books with aliens. This book can stick in your head.

Writing and Editing...two different worlds.

Writing and editing…the most important parts in a writer’s life but two very different parts. Writing is the core of a writer’s life. It is where we are called to create our story, to build our characters, to give them substance and make them real, make the reader care about them and keep them interested and curious about their lives so they want to keep reading and reading and get attached with them. When we write we must be focused on that and not trouble our mind with anything else.

Supportive much?

Liebster Blog Award gave me the opportunity to talk about something important and that is support. The fact is that there are a million blogs and writers around the world and in order to be known and have your blog read by other people, hard work is demanded and dedication. But are those two enough?

Liebster Blog Award


Here I am sitting by the fire and trying to study for exams but I just don’t have it today. So, I get online and I see a mail that someone has left a comment on my blog. I read it and I smile. Riza Ponciano has left me a message saying that she has nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award and I quickly open her blog to read more about it.

Writer’s self-doubt

Well, it was about time for the doubt to knock on my door…again! I’m sure every single one of you knows what I mean. I’m talking about that little annoying voice in your mind which tells you that you are just not good enough, you are not cut out for this and as hard as you try to shut it down the voice continues screaming at you, making your confidence jumps off the window in a fall without borders. You may hear it when you are reading a good novel or when you see a beautiful manuscript or, even worse...when you are writing your own.

Time

Time is a very important factor but as important as it is, I am not sure if we use it wise. At least I know I could use my time way better than I do. “The trouble is you think you have time.” I read this quote some weeks ago and it has stuck in my mind for good. It is so true don’t you agree?

Dazed

I’m too excited today because I will talk about my first book. If you have read my posts, you may have noticed that I haven’t written the title anywhere. A reason I avoided it, was what I said in my previous post. I had uploaded it as a trial and now it still exists even if I have it as a draft on my KPD, because I still work on it. So, today I found the courage to talk about it with title and blurb and all. So…here we are.

When to Publish?

I believe this is a question many indie authors have, including me. It is a big question mark like the one in the picture, which dances in my mind for months. I am referring to indie authors because we do things alone and we don’t know exactly how these things works so our questions marks are plenty and we struggle. I have finished two novels but I am still working on them. My first is on its forth draft and I guess that I will have at least two more before I publish it. But is this enough?

Writers-Loners

First day of the New Year and I will welcome it with a post about us…writers and loners. It’s not a rule but I think it is something that happens a lot. And in my case, I fit the profile. So…writer and loner, loner and writer, are two separate things or there is a connection?
