Day 268 – Childless mother (part III)

D

Stomach pains, vulnerability, headaches, inability to smoke, depression… peeing on a stick. Doctors, visits, wrong diagnosis, fury, collapse… peeing on a stick. Happiness, fear, pain, smoking, denial… peeing on a stick. ” I am better than this. I should have been better than this. This can’t be happening to me. Not to me, the girl who always advises other stupid...

Day 254 – Blank

D

My mind is blank. It’s like a blank page waiting to be filled, or emptied of nothingness. I can see some dots, even a comma here and there, some words nicely rounded by the pen, but no real content, no meaning. It’s just empty. Sometimes I wish human kind would have thought of inventing a better word for nothingness. It’s too plain, it’s too boring, it’s unpleasant...

Day 253 – Busy little bee

D

My daily book was winking at me this morning. It had so much stuff to tell me as soon as I opened it. It said, with an ironic smile, that my week looks a little to full and I should cut something out. Said and done. Two phone calls later I had managed to fill the pages a little more, so I guess this week will be at least challenging. They say you are healthiest when you are happy and busy...

Day 237 – Dead silence

D

Shhh… all the noise from the outside world disappeared today. I am alone… at last. I tried to fight it at first, went to the window, opened it and focused: nothing. Nothing can bring back the noise for a while. Maybe all that is left is silence, a dead, cold silence. I hear anything that’s dead must be cold; there’s no other option. I think death is warm. I think she comes...

Day 130 – Upcoming interview and a new short story

D

After all the racket and stretched nerves with which I have been blessed last week, this week has been kind and easy on me and has offered a lot of peace to think and recuperate. So, after a lot of sleep and being lazy mostly, I am finally ready to get back to work and enjoy the silence of the nights while doing that. One of the main things on my to do list is the upcoming interview for The human...

Day 107 – The kind of writer I think I am

D

Yesterday I was talking about things that inspire me, places I encounter and people I sometimes meet. Today I will tell you one of the things that inspires me the most when I am writing short stories. I am fascinated by the human sorrow and people’s life stories. Each and every person I know has a particular story and something they have suffered greatly for, either if it was a dead pet or...

Day 106 – Never ending choices and their beginnings

D

What should I talk about first? Should I tell you about the wonderful afternoon I had yesterday drinking wine and eating chips in Piazza Santo Spirito, talking to artists whom I love and inspire me every time we spend time together, or about the wonderful morning I had today having coffee with some of the writers from my Writers Group talking about writing and new projects? Tough choice. Or maybe...

Day 49 – Time issues

D

I had an amazing, normal, beautiful day. The man of the house was out shooting an event, so us girls were left alone and unsupervised. We had lots of fun in the garden this morning and then an interesting ride with the bus in the evening. This day passed in a blink of an eye and because of that it made me think about my time issues. I have always been fascinated with time. Either I hate it or I...

Day 24 – A piece of me

D

I have been working on a short story book for a year now and the pieces of the puzzle are coming together quite nicely. I still need a 36 hours day, so that I could work faster on it but, until then it’s slowly but surely progressing (really, if you find hours that I could buy like in the supermarket, I am willing to pay the price hahaha). Until that one will be released into the world, I...
