Write in the morning, revise in the afternoon, read at night

Today one of my followers said that I ‘can’t write for toffee’. Yesterday, one more – a promoter – said that my Sophia von X book cover sucks – seems it all starts well, as usually 😂. My answer is clear – these kind of followers goes to ->>>>> spam ( I actually found it in my spam lol so, I’m thinking: approve it or block it?). I’m probably too...

A love-hate relationship with the writing life…

My thriller, Sophia von X, is finally here. 👻 It took me 6 months and 3 very extensive weeks to finish the book. And now, when I’m thinking about all the work I’ve done, I’m realising I killed an insufficient amount of people.

Choose “MUST” in 2020

#takeawaykeys from the book of Elle Luna “The Crossroads of Should and Must: find and follow your passion” Picasso said about his life and work “It’s not what an artist does that counts, but what he IS.” What he did was what he was. WHAT HE DID WAS WHAT HE WAS. JOB = CAREER = CALLING. Now ask yourself: a) who you are? B) what you do? C) are you doing...

Surreal Humor & Absurdist Comedy – Why Is It So Weird?

Written by Peter Manley When we think about comedy, there are so many different styles and “flavors” for us to choose from. For example, some of the most common forms of comedy – especially in the stand-up comedy realm – are anti-humor comedy (where a dry and otherwise unfunny statement is said out of indirect humor) and insult comedy, where the comedian directly makes fun of the audience or people...
