The NaySayers

The NaySayers

Say Nay To The NaySayers! “Argh, goshdarnit, my head hurts!” I whine loudly. I feel like picking up my computer and throwing it across the room. But then, I’d have to clean up the mess, giving myself more headaches in the process. The dread of all writers, the writer’s block. It has to happen to everyone sometimes, and for some it happens more often than they would like. There are times when I just do not know what to write about, or how to…

Alien

The Alien Being Let’s say that you are different, and that you are not at all like others around you. But I am repeating myself. Are we talking about matters of the physical, or something to do with your soul being? What about your spirit man? Perhaps we are talking about all aspects of you as a human. But the heart of the matter here is that you are different from others. This in fact is a truth, and you…

7 Ways To Save Money According To Shakespeare

7 Ways To Save Money According To Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s Wit William Shakespeare has been quoted a lot. Arguably, his wit is timeless. Some of his wit might make sense, others are senseless, some are controversial, but they are all very interesting. Certainly, after reading them, I find them quite fascinating and potentially the topic of many debates and arguments. Did you read his quotes about women and shrews, for example? Indeed. There are also the ones about foolish men. But I digress. I’ll let you discover those yourself….

18 Ways To Improve Yourself

18 Ways To Improve Yourself

“Each day we are becoming a creature of splendid glory or one of unthinkable horror.” – C.S Lewis It Is Time There’s this song which I have been listening to, by Waylon Jennings called High Time (You Quit Your Low-Down Ways). It’s one of my current favorite songs. Part of the lyrics go, ” Well, I’m sick and tired of waking up sick and tired; As of today there’s going to be some changes made.” You can check out the full…

Quick Bread Recipes And First Attempts

Quick Bread Recipes And First Attempts

A Brave Resolution Something about a new year always makes me want to try something new. This year, since early February of 2019, I’ve been wanting to try my hand at baking bread. This would literally be my first attempt at doing so. I’m an average cook at best. I have some favorite recipes which I can cook amazingly, even if I do say so myself. Even so, most of my dishes are average and simply edible, nothing special to…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, ya’ll! It’s that time of the year again when Love is especially, well, loved. By ‘ya’ll’, I do mean everyone and anyone who loves. I do not ever mean to wish this lovey occasion to just lovers, or people with a significant other. I do believe that Valentine’s Day is for anyone who expresses Love in the most significant way, all the way, all the day long, all the year long! It doesn’t matter if you don’t…

Hashtags And Randomness

Hashtags And Randomness

Hashtags If your life is a hashtag, what would it be? Mine would be various: dreaming, bewildered, marching on, curious, hopeful, thankful, thoughtful, random… No, I can’t have just the one. Because that’s life, it is many things which are important, relevant, unfinished but getting there. Life is interesting, just like hashtags. Why are there hashtags? It is so we can follow those which are of interest to us. See? “Interests“. Being Random I also can’t help but think that…

Familiar Dreams Of A Writer

Familiar Dreams Of A Writer

I have a set of rules I made up for myself when I first started to think of writing as not just a hobby but a possible career option. It might not worked out quite that way, but I mean, dream big, right? Part of these rules go like this, in no particular order – When feeling particularly uninspired, write about things which you are familiar with. Personal experiences are a good start, but at your own discretion of course…

These Pesky But Relevant Questions Here’s a question, “Do you have to be a traveler in order to be a good writer?” How about, “Do you have to experience Love and Heartache in order to write a Love Story?” Or, “Do you have to be old and weary with the world at large to be able to account for your life’s experience and make it believable?” “What about tragedy, do you have to experience one in order to justify your…

Narnia, Reality And Fiction

Narnia, Reality And Fiction

“All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.” Source: “The Last Battle” (1956) As C.S. Lewis Tells It Sometimes, I wonder if my real-life experiences influence my fictional works, or if my fictional…
