A day in which I don’t write leaves a taste of ashes

I have to share something with you. No, not the money. My pockets are empty today. As well as the fridge.
I have to share with you something Out Of This World, or dreamy-super-duper-unreal-wicked-wonderful. No, not the Dumbledore’s wand!

I have to share with you…YOU! Or the part of it. 

Put aside your bored face. A word is not the same with one writer as it is with another!

One tear it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket.
‘Basic Verities, Prose and Poetry’

So I have to share with you (catch it, I know you can 😎) the part of you that you haven’t meet yet. Yes, clicking on those links can be exhausting, I understand. It is the saddest part of blogging, but it leads TO EVERYTHING.

So far, that’s all.
Oh. No. WAIT! You can’t leave without my inspirational quotes – I just want to keep you going with ‘blogging’ or ‘writing’…or whatever you are doing today ☕️😁.
What is Ray doing?
Ray helped with the renovation of the house in the backyard. And also cleaned 2 floors of the house (because the guests are on the way). Cooked 3 meals, walked dogs…

Book Review ‘The Outsider’?
Eh 😭😭: I’m still reading the book. The thing is I CAN’T read this book in the evening, because all I see is the shadow-man with the straws inside of his eyes. Ou😱ch! So you have to wait. I’ll post it anyway, don’t worry!

#1 “Language allows us to reach out to people, to touch them with our innermost fears, hopes, disappointments, victories. To reach out to people we’ll never meet. It’s the greatest legacy you could ever leave your children or your loved ones: The history of how you felt! B. L. 

#2 “A novel rough draft is like bread dough: you need to beat the crap out of it for it to rise.” Chris Balty 


#3 “I write description in longhand because that’s hardest for me and you’re closer to the paper when you work by hand, but I use the typewriter for dialogue because people speak like a typewriter works.” Ernest Hemingway 

I sooooo feel you, Ernie! writing-hard

#4 “It took me fifteen years to discover that I had no talent for writing, but I couldn’t give it up because by that time I was too famous.” Robert Benchley 

Have a great week ahead!

Read – write – blog – repeat …and don’t forget to live ✌️❤️

  1. Love love love! I so enjoy the way you twirl words around like some sort of acrobatic dance that never stops moving! I’m envious! 😘

  2. The best dialog I ever wrote was set in a car driving at night with two occupants. Something about talking in the dark that strips away everything but the conversation…

  3. Thanks for liking my post (OSCILLATION)
    I appreciate that very much.

    It shows your concern for such post.


    I still remain  the simple blogger…..

    Peace ✌and Love ❤

  4. Thanks for the kind words.

    As I view it, what you are doing is equally impressive.

    I recommend that my followers follow you as well.

    I believe that there is a calling for authors, bloggers, and artists to provide a more sincere channel of communication through writing.

    Keep it going. I know how challenging it is to write every day, but we do it with good intent and passion. That makes it joyous.

    I am always touched when my sweet messages like this reach someone. Sincere thanks. What a good positive writing that can motivate one this morning.

    Happy Sunday

    Warm regards, Patrick

    Peace ✌and Love ❤
