Does it really happen ?!!

i just wonder if a person can fall in love with two at the same time, as i started to see that more often lately , and honestly i started to sympathize with thos epeople, as for me i'm totally against that ,, you just fall in love with one, and that's your soulmate, you just can't fall in love with th esame intensity with two at the same time and say that god created us this way , and it really hapens...you see now a guy telling you that he is so madly in love with his wife but he also is so… Continue

The Window Has Other Views

Some people see beautiful trees with different shades of green or amber red, overwhelming color everywhere, a baby blue sky with fluffy white clouds slowly moving over the horizon. Most people will see the trees, these colors, as a reason to get up in the morning and take on the day, to bask in the beauty of the earth. Most people look out the window and see a scene that they want to dive into and expirence first hand. They want to feel the wind in their hair and the warmth of the sun on their… Continue

Writers are often asked where so do you get your ideas? What inspires you?

Answer - inspiration is everywhere. You may say that’s a cop-out answer, but I have heard countless writers say inspiration is everywhere. I admit, there was a time I felt it was a cliché until I learned to look at the world with the right attitude. When I opened my heart to the world,…

Making Peace with the Writer's Mind

A few years ago I suffered a moderate depression. I get them now and then, and certainly I come by them honestly, as anyone who knows me can testify. Usually I go to bed for a few days and then shake it off, but in this case, after a month of lolling on the couch watching bad TV and mumbling about the pointlessness of all existence, my Best Beloved suggested… Continue

Never Forget

Kate makes her way through the darkness, her feet falling where they should completely from memory. She's made this walk many times before over the years. Even in the dark, she knows the way as she follows the worn path through the trees.

The grass is wet so she slows her pace. She chooses her steps carefully as she moves around the obstacles in her way. The darkness enveloping her, the chill in the night air making her tighten her favorite black sweater around her body. The moon the… Continue

COVER GIRL: Animal Magnetism

There seem to be a ton of beautiful, important looking literary fiction jackets out there that prominently feature an illustrated finch or a sparrow. Birds really seem to do it for people. Here's what I'm talking about:

They're pretty and stuff, but I prefer pure manipulation in my animal covers. Go ahead and gimme puppy… Continue

Cursing In Tyler Texas, a Grievous Offense?

This blog first appeared on The Huffington Post on 7/28/09:

Occasionally, a local story makes national news; some are worthy of the attention while others aren’t. The local story I’m about to share certainly does not merit national news. Not because it’s not my local story--after all, I live on Long Island, but because it’s… Continue

Moving and Writing Just Don't Mix

I'm moving to Texas in ... six days and counting. Going to pursue my Ph.D. in technical communication and rhetoric. For a few months, a new screenplay idea has been percolating in my head, and I finally sat to begin outlining the story, but life is getting in the way. There are things to be packed. Family and friends to say goodbye to. Finances to secure. Worries to stress over. Yet my story stays in my head, taunting me, asking, "Don't you still love me?"

And I do, which is why I… Continue

I was a small girl once, I still am. Just not as small as when I remember the best times. I was small and pale and had wild blond hair. I was fearless in a different way… the way children are allowed to be because they haven’t been tainted or jaded by the world yet and everything is still exciting and new and you were encourages to be imaginative and explore the world at your level. When the bush on the edge of our property was more than a bush. Instead it was a secret place because it covered… Continue

Not really a Screaming Fan but …

I never was the kind of teenager who greeted the Beatles shrieking and shrieking and shrieking, the kind of mental state which for the moment excludes everything and anything except the presence of the adored one. (Although I do have to admit to a sneaky urge to fawn over Alan Rickman… but we digress…)

But over the last year or so I have to admit that I've acquired something of an affection, as well as a deep admiration for his acting skills, for David Tennant, the Tenth Doctor… Continue
