Are You a Guiding Light?

Are you a guiding light for others? By that, I mean, do you encourage and help motivate those around you? Or do you pull them down?

An encourager says things like “good job!” when a task is done right. And when it isn’t, they say something like, “you made a great start, so now, next time if you just do…

Who's Afraid of Writing?

In honor of Halloween I’m addressing the ghostly presence that haunts all writers: the blank screen/page. I haven’t thought about this specter for a while because I’ve spent the past few months submerged in a novel revision. However, last week I hit the SEND button, delivered the book to my agent, and unwittingly invited the spirit back to my…

On Death and Driving Lessons

I was two weeks shy of my 27th birthday when I moved back to my parents’ Toronto home after living away for nearly a decade.

Returning home was as hard a choice as it was an easy one. Hard because the idea of coming full circle felt like a failure to me; easy because I needed somewhere familiar to crash (and a warm bed and good food didn’t hurt, either).

Illusive Principle(s)

Last night, in a dream, a woman (a stranger to me) asked, “Tell me, why do you care about the illusive and principles?”[1] I told her it was because the illusive is the web that holds this existence together. It is the invisible; the nothing that scientists are now saying is something – especially at subatomic levels. It is a beauty of sorts; one that we do not know and cannot see, thus, consequently do not necessarily care about. But in that illusive is the essence of being,…

The Mindsets that Keep You From Starting (and Finishing) Your Book: Part III

You've written your book. You made it through the first few chapters and all the way to the end. You read and revised it, and now you're ready for someone to read it. This is a big moment—your book is no longer an idea in your head; it's a story that someone can read and experience. Talk about a…

Four Issues To Ponder Over For People Looking For Quality Limousine Hire In Sydney

. the little front bedroom .

cracked  window looks at clouds, the mountain.

ledge, dead moths stretched out in

all their softness, stunned by light.

 

sewn curtains stir memories, indicate

a private place to weave and mend

a dream.

 

here are the items, the installations,

here are the photographs i take

each day. here are the worries

placed in the cupboard, with notes,

for you to read.

Are You Underestimating Yourself?

Are you underestimating yourself? Are you underestimating your talents while overvaluing what others can do?

For example, maybe you’re a great interior decorator, and people, over the years have come to you for advice and everything you’ve told them has been exactly what they…

[NETWORKING FOR INTROVERTS] What are you afraid of?

Photo courtesy of Stuart Anthony via Creative Commons

I've been thinking about fear lately. When I attended the BlogHer '13 conference in Chicago, Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook and author of Lean In) urged us to "Write down what you are afraid of, then go do it." I thought about what I wanted to do but was too afraid to do. At the moment it was to blog about race. My fear was that, as a white person, I would be…
