Writing can heal

writing_healing“Writing eases my suffering . . . writing is my way of reaffirming my own existence.”  – Gao Xingian

Have you ever asked yourself why is it that people write? Why is it that they feel this urge?

Perhaps they do so because they don’t want to forget. Or maybe because they write differently from what they think, and only in writing do they find the freedom they so desperately need.

Hi guys,

This month’s super sale is coming to a close. Only two more days left until it ends. If you want to reach a bigger audience, if you want to support my blog, if you simply want to read some really cool books and stuff… here’s what I’ve got to offer:

Reblog – Do you have a WordPress.com blog? Have you written a piece you’d want everyone to read? Now you can have your content reblogged to an audience of over 87,000.

It costs $25 and can be purchased here. Also, you can buy as many options as possible, to use them whenever you want.

Sponsored post – I will write a blog post about your blog, or review one of your books, or interview you about your art. That’s right, this post is restricted to art related blogs/websites. You choose how you want the blog post to be, and what you want to contain. Also, the post will be kept “sticky” at the top of my website for an entire week.

It also costs $25 and can be purchased here.

And last, but not least, the e-book bundle. It contains 4 novels, a novella, 4 short stories, a compilation of essays, and a compilation of short stories. All for the incredibly low amount of $4.99. A bargain, I’d say. You can read reviews of the books here.

Oh, yeah, you can buy the bundle here.

Support this crazy, way too young, Romanian self-publisher. He could really use your help right now.

Perseverance, perfectionism, and the impossible

impossibleIn a way, I believe that all artists are possessed by this silly ambition: they want to do something no one else has thought of doing before them. They want to create something that’s unique. And perfect. And so they try, again and again, and they always fail. It seems to me that this is what truly motivates us.

We keep on writing because nothing we write is good enough, or at least, as good as we think it should be. Or as good as we think it deserves to be.

No story is ever “finished.” There’s always something to change, to add, to remove. Continue reading

Now or never

Fifty nine hours. A little bit more than two days. $322 raised so far. It’s now or never.

I can’t tell you how important reaching the goal is. For the future of this blog, for all my projects. For my career. Every little bit counts, every donation helps. It helps me pay for upgrades, it helps me pay for the software and hardware that I need.

There’s an all new Rockstar perk. It’s really worth the money.

And also, there’s the special offer for anyone who chooses to contribute $50 or more: one reblog, one mention as sponsor at the end of a blog post, alongside a short description of your blog, and listing as sponsor for the rest of the year.

I believe we can do this. Now. I believe that we can reach the goal, we can make it happen. I believe you can make it happen for Cristian Mihai, crazy 23 year old who’s been blogging here for 2 and half years now.

Help me make this happen. Help me with my dream.

If you want to help me out, you can do so here.

What we write about tells us who we are…

write

“What is the issue that is eating you up? What is the personal fear that you can’t resolve and you can’t tolerate? Are you getting old with fucking NOTHING to show for it? Then, write Invisible Monsters. Are you worried that your brain or talent isn’t capable of creating anything interesting or unique, and you’ll die and rot and be forgotten – failing everyone you love? Well, then write Diary. My point is, use the story to explore and exhaust an issue of your own. Otherwise, you’re just dicking around, playing “let’s pretend.” If you can be ruthless and honest about your own fear, you express something that other people can’t express. You can resolve your own anxiety – through research, discussion, experiment – and that freedom is what brings you back to writing.

What could you never talk about in a million years? Then, write about that.” – Chuck Palahniuk Continue reading

Last week

First of all, I’d like tot thank Matthew, Josh, Romaina, Carlyn, and all the others who have contributed to my fundraiser, or bought the e-book bundle, or purchased one of the advertising options.

There’s only one week left in the campaign, $322 raised so far.

Anyone who contributes $50 or more will be showcased as sponsor for the rest of the year, and will have a blog post reblogged. That’s besides any perk they select from the campaign page. As a bonus, so to speak.

I believe we can do this. I believe we can reach the goal.

Like they say. Difficult things take a long time, impossible things a while longer.

If you want to help me out, you can do so here.

The secret ingredient

Aspiring artists have always been searching for the secret ingredient, for that special trait that makes some artists great. After all, in a way, it goes beyond talent as an innate ability, beyond acquired skill, beyond hard work, determination, or luck.

The secret ingredient is often mistakenly interpreted as having something to do with the struggling artist’s myth. In a way, it does. Continue reading
