from where comes the love,
comes the pool of fear,
the fright of interrogation,
from where comes the mourning,
comes the spirit,
i hear the bells,
and it shows,
from where comes the whistling,
comes the pool of tears,
the laughter we hear.

This is what I've been doing tonight:
The mermaid braid is hard to do. They all look better on straight hair, but I will be doing a fishtail braid on the side now and then.…Continue

How right or how wrong does it get when Gertrude Stein appears in the movies? I had a second look at Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris -- and compared his Gertrude to her twin in Alan Rudolph's cult classic, The Moderns:…Continue
First, the confession. For years--decades even--I've harbored a small, secret, but acrid judgement about the self-publishing world. I confess this now, red-faced in front of my dear friends and esteemed authors who have gone the self publishing route. Please forgive me. I'm confessing a dirty secret here and I've developed a new outlook. And even you fine self-published writers with beautiful, well-written books have to admit that the self-publishing process has created a certain…Continue

1. Kicking your boyfriend’s father’s butt might not be good for the relationship.
2. Sometimes following your heart means breaking some rules.
3. Getting trapped in a grave with three dead girls is not a walk in the park.

solid, but soft within
structured but flexible enough
to be bent or guided in
there they were
all perfectly connected to each other:
banana stems soldered at the hip
like a can-can chorus line
(with fruit to offer instead of a…Continue

for four years, i lived everyone else's life
perhaps for twenty-six years…
but here and there
i would act out my own dreams
i fashioned a healthier body
i spent more time at the beach

Someone once told me that every step in the literary ladder has similar stresses, hopes, and disappointments — just at different levels. Before you’ve been published, it feels as if the world will be a better place and your life will be transformed if you just get that first “yes” to a submission. Then, if and when you get that “yes,” you begin to worry about whether you will ever get another one. If and when you get a second acceptance, you wonder if you can keep the momentum. And if you’re…Continue

Well, let's just build a blanket tent in the living room, why don't we? Let's just tear the whole house apart while we're at it. And ask for hot chocolate. And resist bedtime. RESIST RESIST RESIST! Well. . . .
Mom hides out in the bedroom reading Anna Karenina. She (Anna) and her husband are not getting along so well. She's gotten herself into a fix. Meanwhile the upper-class Scherblatzsky (or whatever her name is) girl, is at the spa trying to get over a broken heart. Good…Continue

1.If you think "you have it". Well, among 1000 people, less than one is a writer. The other 999 are wannabe writers. To Want it and to Make it, is as different as to Volunteer and to Have to.
2. Because your best friend did it. It does not have to be that way. We sometimes become authors for all the wrong reasons. Because we are too famous and too rich. Because we are academics. Because we can afford it. Because we have all the right connections. Because we took lessons on how…Continue

I stumbled upon a blog close to 2 years ago. Making Baby Grand was Dina Santorelli’s way of sharing the writing/ publishing process with her readers. Dina offers weekly writing tips to her readers as well as supporting and featuring other debut authors. I am so excited to introduce you to author/editor/freelance writer, Dina Santorelli. Her debut novel Baby Grand had me hooked from page one and did not disappoint.
