Imagine a World Without Time

While I’m working on the formatting of So Absurd It Must Be True, Book 2 (yay! it’s almost here!), try to imagine this world… without time.  In Schrodinger’s famous thought experiment, he imagines a cat in a box with a flask of cyanide. The flask will be broken – and the cat poisoned – if an atom of radioactive material decays. We know that it will decay, but when is...

Shame-less by Nadia Bolz-Weber

(nonfiction) #takeawaykeys If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive. Brené Brown, Daring Greatly Alert! Long post, if you can’t read it now, save for later! This book is for women who are almost-enough, who are struggling every day of their lives to be perfect, to deliver the image of the good mother, sexual goddess, ideal companion, and out-of-this-world-body. This book...

About time, love… and faith

This post is based on the book of Martin Hägglund – “THIS LIFE: Why Mortality Makes Us Free” (non-fiction; philosophy) I guess you know that everything you do is divided between the past and the future. Every tiny moment. An hour. A minute. Or second… That means you are never be able to seize NOW as a present moment. Even when I am writing these words to you – today, at...

The Concept of Nothing

written by Aaaron Boluwatife Nothing, as used in everyday speech, means the absence of something. For example, “There is nothing in my pocket” 👇🙀! In this post though, I will not be talking about “nothing” as the absence of something, but as the absence of everything. Everything you know… including yourself. You’ve always imagined what this world will be without you in it, right? Now imagine the world without anything in it....

PANTS DOWN!

Quotes about writing, part #2 A person who publishes a book will fully appears before the populace with his pants down. If it is a good book – nothing can hurt him. If it is a bad book – nothing can help him. Edna St. Vincent Millay I’ve always considered writing the most hateful kind of work. I suspect it’s a bit like fucking — which is fun only for...

10 Eye-Opening Writing Rituals from Great Writers

The author should die once he has finished writing. So as not to trouble the path of the text. Umberto Eco The truth is (social distancing or not), I am still a very disorganised author. How could I publish so many books? 🤨 I don’t know.  That’s why I’m diving in into some rituals of the greatest, in hope to learn a thing or two… or to find the answers.  Kazuo Ishiguro...

Anita’s Pond

This is going to be quite long post, mostly because of 1,5k short story I’m sharing today. I’m still working with my thriller Sophia von X… I may need one more week before I’ll hit ‘send’ and leave it to proofreading team. Its so many details, heroes… and words 😂 (=60k) – the story is also a bit crazy (read: I’m not so sure anymore about the genre 💣👽). As you...

Discover the power of stress-free productivity

There’s a beautiful Sanskrit work – Samadhi OR समाधि – which roughly translates as a state of oneness, or complete absorption. How often do you experience such a feeling when you write? You know… that golden moment when you get entirely lost in your own words, and the page fills up effortlessly. The great challenge for us, soulful scribes, is that, all too often, the state of Samadhi alludes us. Our minds swirl with...
