Day 322 – Getting ready

D

The final preparations for the Writing Workshop are being made and everything is coming together nicely. People are excited, locations are being decided and ideas are coming to life. As writers we each take a different journey when telling others the stories we create. We have different voices, different approaches. My journey started on the streets of a small town in the mountains almost 17...

Day 321 – Details

D

I am all about the small details in everything. For instance if I receive a gift I am so excited about the wrapping and the bow on it and less about the actual present that’s inside. If I would go into a store, I would admire the small details they used to arrange the windows or the merchandise. If I would go to someone’s house I would freak out about the small boxes or any small...

Day 304 – Unique stories

D

After a crappy morning I had a very insightful work session today. I am currently working on a biography (soon to be made public) that involves a lot of commitment and dedication and I absolutely love it. This is an incredible project for me and because I am a story hunter I feed my soul and mind with amazing life stories. When I started this project I was scared to death. The magnitude and...

Day 301 – Sunday…

D

It’s been a weird day today. On any other day, I would describe the events that happened today as bricks to build a perfect day, but not today. We spent the morning at the playground with Ephia, mingling with moms and kids, having coffee and watching her being happy. It was a lot of fun. We had a nice walk, delicious lunch and a friend over for drinks and stories. After Ephia’s long...

Day 286 – Saturday’s mood

D

Saturday morning. We start with a Cambridge test for my kids. Everyone gets a sticker, everyone is smiling. I’m too tired to play, I’m to tired to teach, but I go on not thinking, not breathing my exhaustion. Friday nights know me so well. They are meant to be so that they can torture me to death. I always play it safe. I do my work fast, as much as I can during the day and go to bed...

Day 277 – Aimless

D

Not in the mood, tired, empty, feeling purposeless… Shower, early morning, overslept, motherly duties… Desperate for fresh air, coffee break, planning, smiling… Lots of hugs, lunch, leaving, teaching… Children, beauty, satisfaction, buss stop… Home, dinner, lots of hugs, smiles, sadness. This is how my day would look like without using any verbs. I was supposed to...

Day 276 – The magic cat and the kingdom of sorrow

D

Once upon a time there was a cat, and this cat lived in a household full of children; in fact there were so many children that their parents gave them letters instead of names. So, the biggest child was A, the second one was B, the third C and so on until the letter H. Now, this family wasn’t rich nor poor. The parents worked the land they owned, their backyard was full of animals that the...

Day 265 – Only one hundred days left

D

This is it. The final countdown has begun. I can’t believe this project made it so far. On some days it looked like everything was going to fall a part, on other days it was pure pain to write here and occasionally I had a lot of fun making up topics to write about. I think I have finally reached the phase when I am only having fun doing it. With only a hundred more days to go, I have...

Day 236 – Busy little bee

D

I feel the need to be creative and since I’ve been having some great couple of days I decided to give myself a treat and create a new story. It seems that every day I meet new people, even if they don’t speak to me, even if they just glance at me once, or keep their eyes blocked into their smartphones. They are all interesting people, with stories worth telling, with baggage no one...

Day 221 – Writer’s block

D

If you know any writers, you will hear these words coming out of their mouths at least once. Wikipedia defines a  writer’s block as a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work. I slightly disagree, but also very much agree with that. Confusing right? The writer’s block I am experiencing right now has nothing to do with my...
