Wow. I’ve been working on this post for a few weeks and I have to say: reliving the creation of my book? Not as easy as I thought it would be. Probably because while writing a memoir about losing my brother to suicide was incredibly healing, it was also slow and raw and painful, like digging glass splinters out of my heart with my fingers.
It's been ten years since my brother took his own life. I was 24 at the time. Fresh out of a graduate program in literature, I believed words were the answer to everything. I would write about my brother eventually, I knew. What I didn’t know was when I would do it or what I would say. The first year without him the grief was too hot and too sharp to touch. I worked a series of low-paying jobs and zombie-walked my way through the days, waiting…Continue
If you think you have an excuse not to write, I have little doubt that today's guest post by bestselling author Jean Kwok will disabuse you of that and send you to your writing chair. I've known Jean's writing since the fabulous success of her first novel, Girl in Translation, an award-winning New York Times bestseller which has been published in 17 countries and taught in universities, colleges and high schools across the world. She's back with a second novel which has already been named a Best Book of 2014 by Woman's Day and Real Simple. Mambo in Chinatown is the story of a young woman torn between her family duties in Chinatown and her escape into the world of ballroom dancing--a story which may sound a little familiar after you read her post. -…Continue
At the time, I was a newspaper novice looking to network. I was a few years out of J-School. I had already befriended a handful of aspiring writers, and conversations with all of them INSPIRED me. Really. I had a number of great discussions with people who, like me, loved storytelling, sharing, empathizing. Pursuing their dreams.
The trouble with the pursuit of dreams, of happiness, of the perfect job is that doing so involves taking a step forward (hopefully), or at least in a different direction.
I found out in a roundtable newsroom staff meeting in 2011 that I would be losing my job in 2012. It turned out to be a false prediction, because in spring 2012, I was not laid off, but rather was offered a job transfer to Des…Continue
We're going a little off schedule this week on [REALITY CHECK]. In Jim's previous post about what Amazon can (and can't) do with your ebook (see "Amazon Ate My Ebook!"), he said, "Later in August I plan to publish another article that centres around Amazon, this time about print books."
Well, sometimes you're better off not planning ahead just in case something juicy pops up...and it has...and that something juicy is Amazon's new Kindle pre-order feature for ebooks.
Jim will be back to fulfill his earlier promise, but right now he wants to share some info you may or may not be aware of regarding this new tool for publishers and authors who sell…Continue
That's the slogan of the USA Network on American TV. However, it also became something of my own personal catch-phrase, as both a writer and artist — and yes, even as a fan.
Every once in awhile I notice someone online knocking fan-made works, and more than once I've read others claiming people who draw fanart do it for the built-in audience and automatic views. I do find that a…
Or do you invite them in; into the “living room” of your mind? Do you offer them a beverage, maybe a cup of coffee and a sandwich to go with that? Do you offer them a seat and then let them convince you that…
