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
On the day I was finalizing my review of Kelly Sundberg's essay, "It Will Look Like a Sunset," I searched for her on LinkedIn and Facebook, found her both places, and sent her private messages. I identified myself as a fan, told her I was reviewing her essay, and asked if she'd be willing to answer a few questions. She was wonderfully gracious, taking time to answer my questions that same day, from Idaho, at her summer job in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. Our email conversation follows.
Bishop: You say that the publication of "It Will Look Like a Sunset" led to over 20,000 views of your blog. My guess is by now that number is much higher. The essay has obvious literary value, but also has societal and cultural relevance as an essay that pioneers the…Continue
When a Facebook friend tagged me to write about what I am most grateful that was a very reflective moment, a reminder of the many gifts in life. One very important gift was being able to realize my lifelong dream that took over 50 years to reach: to study journalism.
No doubt that high school days provide the most memories from adolescence to adulthood. Days when boys meet girls under the mango trees, heart-thumping glances, secret love notes and other forms of puppy love expressions.…
Today's short is the official trailer for "The Imitation Game" based on Andrew Hodges's 2012 biography "Alan Turing: The Enigma":
Yesterday I began a new part to my second novel The Winter Rose. This element is a 'story within a story' and I had to think long and hard about how I was going to deliver on this piece which is crucial to the story as a whole. Let me explain without giving away too much of the story at this stage:
The Winter Rose is a legend which I made up to serve the basic story line of the book. However, I want it to come across as a real story, so I'm writing it as a 'book'…
