“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” ― Robert Frost
In those moments of true despair, when it feels that we have lost hope for the better, when we have forsaken our passion for life, it’s a bit tricky to look around and see what’s happening to all the others who inhabit your own little story: life does not stop. It goes on. It carries on, no matter what.
And, whether you’re willing to see it and accept it or not, life goes on for you too.
Whether you want it to or not, life goes on. And, slowly, it takes everything away. Continue reading
The last few days have been difficult for me, mostly because I wanted to write and couldn’t. There’s still a lot to go in order to get my health issues fixed, so between doctor’s appointments and sleepless nights, I couldn’t write as much as I wanted to.
There are only 9 days left and $635 to raise in order to cover the costs. There’s nothing else I can say other than the fact that if you wish to help out, you can do so here.
I just hope that people will care enough to donate even $1, knowing perfectly well that it does help me. A lot. Given my current situation (and its urgency), any contribution matters.
Also, there are still 2 spots left for reblogs here.
Once again, thank you all for your help.
In an essay about Kafka, David Foster Wallace wrote the following words, “the horrific struggle to establish a human self results in a self whose humanity is inseparable from that horrific struggle. [...] our endless and impossible journey toward home is in fact our home.”
Now, he was talking about Kafka’s works, but I think that phrase pretty much sums up what life is all about. Continue reading
Most people like to believe talent, hard work, and luck are among the determining factors of success. For a long time I thought you only need two of them.
But, actually, if you want to be successful, and it doesn’t matter if all you want is to become a great dancer or actor or writer, or whether you want to pick up pretty girls in bars, you just have to be willing to make a fool out of yourself. Continue reading
I’d like to thank everyone who donated, commented on my situation, offered advice or kind words, and I’d also like to tell you that the things are not as gloom as the dentist first thought. My next appointment is Monday, and he said that time is of the essence, should we want to recover the molar.
So far we’ve raised $545 in 5 days.
If you’d like to help me out, you can contribute any amount you like here.
Also, because time is not on my side, I’m offering 5 spots for reblogs at $50 each — which you can buy here.
Once again, thank you all for your support. I wouldn’t have been able to afford the medication, let alone the treatment, if it weren’t for you guys.
Whenever I tell someone I’m a writer, and they show genuine interest towards my “profession,” I end up telling them about all the cool e-mails I get from people. Or about the reviews my books get. Or this or that comment.
You know, there are good days and bad days. There are days when you don’t feel like writing, or days that you simply don’t want to write. But your readers are what’s most important, what keeps you going, what makes you feel like a writer even during those bad days. Continue reading
