Recently a Facebook friend shared a post with me regarding Indie Musicians versus Indie Authors. It appears our culture has a fascination and reverence for the Indie Musician whereas Indie Authors face an immediate stigma. We authors have to continually prove ourselves, whereas…

Looking Bad Is The New Looking Good

Looking Bad Is The New Looking Good

Originally posted on I Miss You When I Blink:

Here’s an advertising trend that comes up every now and then: putting glamorous apparel on models made to look sad/greasy/hostile. I’m stumped by this. Why would it help sell an outfit to show that outfit on a person who looks miserable? There must be a method to this madness, or so many designers wouldn’t be doing it. But what? What’s the thinking?

“Everyone should live in London at least once,” says a recent listicleImage published by London-based organization studentbeans.com, who serves up a great list of must-sees and dos that are tailored to make a tourist out of every well meaning graduate.

As a loyal New Yorker, I found myself wondering how London, with its terrible weather, strictly demarcated…

Self Publishing: Wannabe Writers Beware

Self Publishing: Wannabe Writers Beware

Originally posted on Giles Benaway:

While I was recently giving a workshop on the writing practice, I was asked my opinion on self publishing. I was doing the workshop wrap up and nearing the end of my allotted time, so I gave a glib answer with little depth. Later, I was asked by some of the workshop attendees to clarify my position in more detail, as a few of the participants were…

Professional or Hobbyist?

Originally posted on Suzie81 Speaks:

ImageA few years ago, during a night out, I was introduced to a man in his early twenties that was the school acquaintance of a friend. During the general polite conversation that followed I asked him what he did for a living, to which he replied, “I’m a photographer.” I immediately found the subject interesting (I love photography) and started asking him lots of…

The 5 Worst Things You Can Say To A Blogger

Originally posted on A Morning Grouch:

So, I’m no blogging genius.  When I first started blogging I had zero idea of the etiquette, cultish followings, or blogging cliques that existed.  I pretty much started this as a procrastination tool.  I’m still half-assed and hardly an expert; I have been dragging my feet even getting my self-hosted site up and running (does that even make sense?) because…

Identity is fascinating. If we didn’t find it fascinating, there would be no interviews, no memoir, no ‘I’, as such. To identify each other, we talk about interests, beliefs, our dreams, our likes and dislikes, our passions. We talk about where we think we belong, what our past has been, what our present is, and where we think we’re going. Or we…

‘And We Fade Into Darkness, Fade Into Darkness’

Originally posted on Generation Awkward:

Shelly Alekka passed away a few days ago. It was cancer that took her. It was in her stomach. It’s not like we were best friends. It’s not even like we were close. I knew her though. Not like you know someone on Facebook, or someone you met once in college. I went to school with her during the formative years of our lives. My school was private and small.…

Unbecoming a Writer

Originally posted on InkBlots and IceBergs:

There was a time, not too long ago, when I couldn’t have imagined calling myself a writer—and by “writer,” I mean the kind that gets paid to do work that’s actually published in print and credited through a byline. During that time, I did write, but I only wrote either for personal reasons (in a private journal or this blog), or for the ghostwriting…

The problem with always saving the world is that it necessitates that the world be always broken.

The problem with the world being always broken is that it surrenders the idea of it ever being better.
