Literature is not innocent

“When one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question, “What does it mean?” It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable,” said Rene Magritte about his painting The Lovers. As you understand, we’ll talk about surrealism, but not about Rene Magritte in particular, although he was one of the most plagiarized artists, the true surrealist with witty and unexpected ideas. Today I’d...

I write what I can write, when I can write it

What do you think about the title of this post? It does sound like you, doesn’t it? Well, why should you stress yourself with all that bloody writing when there are millions of amazing things online – movies about witches, horror series with zombies, historical romances to-die-for, political chats, blaming humanity tweets… Who is creating all this stuff? How do they do it? You don’t have a damn minute to...

Being creative is hard

I believe that creativity is some kind of human magic because AI and robots still can’t achieve our imaginary level. However, being creative isn’t easy and doesn’t come naturally. The problems with this kind of magic: it isn’t random, it has nothing to do with inspiration, you aren’t born this way; you can train your brain to be more creative. How? By doing creative work (in your field) over a...

The Path of Writing. The Path of Ray.

The Path of Ray is not only about writing. It is also about reflections, connecting with oneself and the world. The path of yellow and orange, of sharp speech and bold ideas, of silly pearls of wisdom and hidden truths, healing and awakening. The greatest writers often say that their stories come from a source beyond the thinking mind. How do we access that source? How we cultivate our ideas?...

The Secret of Quantum

written by Ogunwumi Abimbola My friend had a breakup today (don’t worry, Suzy has a break up every other week; two cups of ice cream later, and we’ll be hunting for her next boyfriend 😉). Anyways, in between tears and sky-high scoops of ice cream, this was the summary of her ranting.  “If I had known Dylan would have been worse, I would have just stayed with Jack”.  “If I had...

Over the edge

#1 So Absurd It Must Be True, Book 2  is here! Finally💃😂! Now I can take 1-2 weeks’ break… and forget about writing for a while. Kindle price 0.99 and paperback 8.99 (one month only), but because of COVID19, prices may vary or be different, depends on the time, country, and Amazon’s decision. OBS! I haven’t checked the print version yet, because the delivery time is much longer. If you’d like...

Because you are currently here…

I’ve found the best way to revise your own work is to pretend that somebody else wrote it and then to rip the living shit out of it. Don Roff The revision of So Absurd It Must Be True is done. Yesterday I sent the book to the proofreader. Book 2 consists of 23 short stories only, but they are longer. I believe the paperback should be 200-210 pages. I have...

My latest review – Sophia von X

★★★★★ Sophia Von X is a work of fiction in the suspense, mystery, and parody sub-genres, and was penned by author Victoria Ray. Written for mature audiences due to the inclusion of some explicit language and mild violent scenes, this highly amusing tale lightly mocks the action thriller genre whilst taking readers on its own wild and suspenseful ride. Our central characters are Sabina and Thomas, who find themselves brought...
