Oh, this was a sad movie. No, I'm not spoiling anything, my overall impression has nothing to do with an ending, or a specific event in the script, I just had to say, it's sad. There's an air of melancholy that I didn't expect (which is totally my fault since I only finished re-watching Third… Continue reading I Watched ‘Love Is Strange’.
This will be a short review, because the movie speaks for itself, and it's probably one of the best thrillers I've seen in the past ten years. Everyone involved did a fantastic job. Ben Affleck was never one of my favorite actors, even though I've always found him very good, but here, he simply nailed… Continue reading I watched ‘Gone Girl’
Oh, my God, they're back. Is it just me, or the premiere wasn't as thrilling as expected? Were our expectations too high? (Damn right, we got used to utter awesomeness) Yes, it was impossibly cool because now all the characters/actors feel like home. Yes, it was disgusting and scary and creepy (that home-made porn movie,… Continue reading American Horror Story ‘Freakshow’ Premiere

Okay, after a short while in the writing community, I am really grateful about how much I learned. I learned about myself, my writing habits, my writing mood and what interests me. I learned not to accept every possible manuscript exchange for an honest review. I learned new fancy writing words. And many more I… Continue reading Things that suck in the Writing Community, or Why we are all dicks with self-promotion.
Let's see...It had been a while since the last time I caught a satisfactory horror movie, so I kind of started avoiding them. It caused me great pain since I couldn't really feed my need for some onscreen fright, but I learned to live with it. Until a few nights ago, when I decided that… Continue reading So I watched ‘The Haunting of Helena’…
So, this one time, I was no more than five years old, and I was pestering my father about something stupid.Naturally, he didn't even blink at my impossible request.I was a rather dramatic child, so I decided it would be wise to throw myself on the sofa in despair, honoring him with a quiet, but well-prepared… Continue reading Don’t cry like a Disney princess.
Oh dear, Oh dear, Oh dear. Pure excitement.You know that feeling of frustration and almost physical chest pain of being unable to write a single word for days? Months?And you know the feeling after those long months of torture, when you finally find yourself writing whole pages without a stop? And you're so inspired, that… Continue reading Victory Over Writer’s Block
This is a true depiction of what we feel like when you strip us off our 'hottest chick' attire at the airport. Or when you make us take of our shoes at your baby's birthday party. Or anywhere.Oh, btw, I wrote a book about a girl like this, and it's free today. Click here.
This post was originally published on Writing About Writing, May 6th, 2014I like to believe that I am days away from finally wrapping up my manuscript (which doesn’t include pulling my hair over the right cover art, possible excruciating dilemmas about whether a book trailer is necessary, and also struggling night after night for a perfect synopsis).… Continue reading What I Learned From Writing My First Novel
If you're a self-published writer, then you know what I mean. I LOVE both KDP and CS, but being new in all of this and battling spawns of Satan such as 'enter tax information even though you're not a US citizen', or 'Dear Amazon, why isn't my cover visible yet' left me looking like this… Continue reading Publishing on Amazon KDP and Createspace, or how to not sleep properly for a few days
Well, okay, the first draft. Because however much in love I am with what it looks like now, it will need change. Butchering. Adding. Hating. And loving again.But the feeling is simply incredible. Exhilarating. It's 3 a.m where I am and I can't get used to the fact that I don't have a Word document… Continue reading Finished!
So this is new. I've been writing my whole life, but I didn't expect this. A story I began, started to develop into a novel, without me knowing. It wasn't my fault! Is it normal to wake up with it and go to bed with it? Is it normal to speak your characters' dialogues while… Continue reading Writing. A. Novel.
