Beautiful blogger award nomination


beautiful blogger award

I’m deeply honored to have been nominated for the beautiful blogger’s award by Nettrobbens,  I always enjoy reading her post you should check it out!
I’m quite overwhelmed and have no idea how I’m meant to write but I’ll try my best with the points I was given as guide lines, three things I’ve learned about writing,Three, about reading and one about life. That shouldn’t be too hard 🙂

1. So, first is about a muse.
To find my creative muse, is finding more than a best friend, it’s discovering my inner-self, my better-self, and my soul. I feel complete.

2. Second is about grammatical rules, can they be bended?
If my character is one who doesn’t speak the language properly then, it would have a purpose and in that case, yes.

3. Third is once you’ve written a piece of work, you’ll never read a book the same way again.
Today, I read a book with the appreciation of someone who has toiled over a word, a sentence… I am thankful for reading a book that is on a level, a book I can learn something from, that  transports me to a place that is totally new to my universe. I avow, I am currently more critical  than prior to my writing.

Now, three things I’ve learned about reading.

1. Biographies are a wonderful means of measurement…

I love good biographies! I read one a few years back, about the Russian great soprano Galina Vichnevskaia, her life story was fascinating, reading her book gave me tremendous amount of historical knowledge, I finished the book feeling my mind had stretched out, that I had gotten a lot out of it, which is what I look for.

I usually like my characters to be human so, I’ve never exaggerated them but I don’t have that much experience in writing, I might think differently about the subject in a few years time 🙂

2. Second, readers like to read about someone who life spirals down and comes back up.

I prefer a romantic book that’ll have a build up with a slight bit of drama but I like the poetic, reflective, philosophical style, might sound boring to some, yet, to me it means I can unwind and allow myself to ” soak ” into fantasy.

3. Third, for a writer, other people’s books become textbooks.

True enough, it does! It’s the best practice ground. You learn and grow through them, it’s the gestation of your own creation.

And last but not least 🙂 one thing I’ve learned about life.

It is hard to pick up that one thing, there are so many I have learned along the adventure…

Well, the one that seems at this time the most important is, what I’ve attained through the method  of Byron Katie. To live in the ” Now ” . It is usually  the best we can do. It prevents unnecessary worries, it simplifies life and splits it to the mere nanosecond.

I am surprised to have truly enjoyed answering those points and thank you for nominating me, it’s a true ” pat on the back ” thanks!

New update ( photos ) in ” Will it ever end? ” & ” Memories of a comfy corner… ” posts

Hi everyone! I was ( last night and today ) three hours busy, with looking up on Google for copyright free photos to put in my two posts ” Will it ever end ” in ” oa writings ” and ” Memories of a comfy corner…” in  “writings “.Last night as I tried to edit it, I was having one mishap after the other, one of them is that the photos just erased themselves twice! I decided then and there that tiredness was not the best adviser and left it all for the next day, with a clear head which I hoped would bring me more luck and efficiency 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did looking for humoristic ones in relation with the text 🙂 Let me know

Mega Mindy Birthday cake

Hi everyone!

I’m posting a photo of a birthday cake which I found ( the example )
on the internet and took me three hours to reproduce, not with the usual sugar paste
but with marzipan, as that was the available ingredient.

I played around with food coloring to get to the wanted image, the cake is
the usual ” Hello Kitty ” recipe.
Marzipan is a bit of a nuisance, it’s sticky business, but you can see for yourself the results.
The birthday girl was over the moon and so was I 🙂
What do you think?

This painting is the result of having printed a photo with the ink at its near end.
I was fascinated by its tones and knew from that moment that it would be my next project, one of my favorite and therefore the easiest.
I loved every instant while painting it and did not feel the tiredness at the end.
Yet it was grueling and intense.
I didn’t let go of it until satisfied with the results.
What do you think of it?
