Having Dinner with a Friend

Hello Everyone! How is everyone’s day today? Though this may be a little off topic, yesterday I met up with a close friend of mine, Kelley, to have dinner and chat about our woes, our current writing projects and life.

It was a lot of fun hanging out with her. It made me realise that this was something I really needed. Everyone should have at least one friend they can pour out their heart and soul to and vice versa. Life is too short to be lonely and without at least one friend in your life, don’t you think? Please like, comment and share if you liked this post.

Recognising Good Poetry and Writing

poetic-pen

Just a few days ago I came across a poem (on some kind of family and friends forum) and I liked it so much I wanted to share it here. When it comes to poetry and novel writing, I am a very picky reader. If a poem does not grab my attention within the first few sentences then I usually do not read it to the end, which I think almost everybody can admit to doing with regards to other things.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy mother's Day

Well, today is Mother’s Day! I would like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to my own mother and all mothers of the world, even those mothers whose children have already left the nest and expecting mothers. Although, Mother’s Day comes once a year, you should love and cherish your mother all year round.

Though I’m currently not on Saba to wish my mother a Happy Mother’s Day face to face, I intend to give her a call and read her a poem I wrote some time back, which I will share with you all as well. This is quite a metaphorical poem, which is something that I do not do very often except here and that is because I truly do love my mother ( Both of my parents actually) just as I love life itself and even more. After all you only have one mother. Remember that. 😉 Continue reading

Projects: My Current Works in Progress

Hello Everyone! So far I have three works in progress and they are all novels. I haven’t made a poem since the last poem I made in December, Friend…less, and will not bother to try writing one unless one comes to mind naturally. I have not written any of my own music lyrics in quite a while either. I know of course it was last year but cannot remember exactly when. So it has been quite a while. So I decided trying to focus on my novels since lately I have been getting some more inspiration with those. The novel titles that I am busy working on writing the manuscripts for, are listed below:

Novels

1. Starting Over

2. The Forlorn One

3. The Perks of Having a Little Sister

And all three of my novels are of different genres. My intention is to be a Best Selling Author one day. I know it will take time and practice to hone my writing and story-telling skills in order to even dream of becoming a Best Seller, but I shall one day succeed. You all just sit back, wait and see. 😀

My Inspirations

shower_thinking_by_little_miss_boxie-d3jmo0n

I cannot speak for anyone but myself but I think at times writing and getting inspiration can be a challenge. Especially, when your inspiration does not come regularly but in spurts. I think I already said something about this in one of my earlier posts, but I only write or do anything when I have the right inspirations and I am in that right frame of mind which comes whenever it wants to. But, when it does come it can be either a very short spurt of inspiration or sometimes, which this does not happen very often, it can even overflow. Does anyone else have this challenge when it comes to writing?

Anyway, I have noticed that  when I am taking a shower this is time when my inspiration usually comes. There has been many occasions where I had to rush out of the shower to write down my jumble ideas and words. Actually, it even happened just yesterday where I received inspiration to write about a certain event that occurs in the second novel I am writing, The Forlorn One. And I stayed up until after 4 a.m. getting all my thoughts together and typing it all down. Of course it does not happen all of the time but it have happened so very often that I am lead to believe this.

My guess is ( and this is only my guess) but I am more susceptible to ideas and inspiration because during this time is when I am the most relaxed. The one thing I enjoy more than food and sleeping is taking a shower. And therefore, I am more open during those times. Though it may seem really weird to say that I get most of my inspiration while I am taking a shower, it is what it is, lol. Or maybe it’s not so weird. Please tell me your thoughts. I think it would be really interesting to know how and when others get their inspirations as well. Would you mind sharing?
