I love my Kindle

Ok, I know, I shouldn’t be professing love to an inanimate object, but I do love that darn thing! My Kindle is the first generation, nothing fancy (ok, it has the 3G, hallelujah!), but I love it just the way it is. I received it for Christmas few years ago and it’s the best “toy” I […]

Writing – You have all the weapons you need. Now fight!

I’ve been thinking recently of what a battle it is to write. And most of the time, it is a battle with ourselves. And a quote came to my mind from one of my favorite moves, “Sucker Punch”. It applies to so many areas of our lives, and for me, it applies to writing: “Who […]

My Must-Haves When I Write

In one of my previous posts I talked about the Inspiration and how, rather waiting for the inspiration to write, you should write first and the inspiration will surely follow.

A Perfect Writing Spot

Once upon a time I was obsessed with finding a perfect writing spot. I was only beginning to write my first novel and the level of self-doubt was off the charts. I didn’t know what to write, I feared that I will run out of ideas after each chapter, I was worried about the plot […]

Multi-tasking and Writing

I think I am not a multi-tasker. I always thought I was, and god knows at work I act like I am at least two people at all times, but when it comes to writing, I’m just not. For the past six months I’ve been working on my book and that caused me to completely […]

A Lesson in Patience

Last night an orchid I have been babysitting for exactly a year finally bloomed. I was beside myself with joy, I really thought the day would never come. You might not understand what’s the big deal here, but then you need to know one thing about me. I have a green thumb when it comes […]
