Cristian Mihai (born 25 December 1990) grew up in Constanta, Romania. And he’s still growing up, or at least trying to. Sometimes he writes. Sometimes he gets lucky and writes something good.  He can’t, however, draw a straight line. No matter how much he tries. Not even with a ruler. And, please, don’t ever ask him to sing.

  1. well, i must sincerely admit i wasn't expecting to stumble across your blog just like that but i assume it's only natural of you to have one considering your activity on wattpad and this sort of sites. i'm pretty glad this coincidence, let us name it, happened, though. :) post-urile tale sunt exact in genul in care ma puteam astepta sa fie, ceea ce nu e decat un plus, fiindca au o nuanta foarte personala si sincera

  2. paintlater says:

    What a great favourite painting! I would have been disappointed to find it was a mediocre one when I really enjoyed your blog so much. Pens and brushes, we share great tools. Cheers Sue.

    Salve Mihai, ce bine ca esti certat cu liniile drepte :) Eu am mari probeleme cu liniile in general…Prefer punctele :)

    Poate dialogam o data

    Hello there Cristian, you have a nice and interesting blog!Keep it up . :-)

  5. Kathleen says:

    Writing is fun; drawing stick figures about the best I can do; but I do love to sing!

    My husband and I had a chance to visit Romania (Transylvania) in 1999 and loved the people. We had fun singing familiar songs, each in our own language. Sometimes alternating verses or entire songs, and at least once, simultaneously!

  6. julieisrael says:

    Hi Cristian! I've enjoyed looking through your blog so far and look forward to future insightful posts.

    P.S. I can't draw a straight line, either. Not to save my life.

  7. Ben Naga says:

    It's my wife (plus her three sisters and her daughter) who have all the artistic talent. I am just grateful that the muse of poetry uses me as a channel now and again.

  8. Born 1990 you had better still be 'only' growing up, keep up the good work!

  9. I just discovered your blog, and I'm following you now. You have some very interesting posts!

  10. You share my favorite Painting! ^^ Nice to meet you!

  11. About those straight lines – have you tried with the other hand? Seriously, might make all the difference. If not, well, what's wrong with a ruler?? ;)

  12. Pete Armetta says:

    Love to hear you sing bud! Best of luck with your writing and I look forward to biting into your blog.


  13. jaguarod says:

    hmmm…you know what….I cant make a straight line neither!!! No matter what :D We might be brothers! :D

  14. Alex Diaz says:

    Why is “Wanderer above the Sea of Fog” by Caspar David Friedrich your favorite painting?

  15. Wow! You have a wonderful blog bud. Bio sounds really interesting too. :D

    Keep in touch. Have a great day ahead.

    Cheers! m/ :)

  16. Hi Cristian,

    I've nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award: http://thejottersjoint.wordpress.com/2012/06/08/a….



  17. hyeonsung says:

    I enjoyed your about page,leaving me wanting more:)

    I'm now excited to see more of your posts

  18. SJ says:

    Cute picture and a great enticing write up about yourself. Give me more! :)

  19. gilmarcil says:

    Ok, hello Mihai…

  20. Shalvika P says:

    Hey Cristian! I stumbled upon your blog through someone else's and I'm so glad that I did! You have an amazing blog here. Keep it up! :)

  21. iulialesley says:

    Hey Cristian :) Imi place mult blogul tau. Si eu scriu si citesc doar in engleza. Imi face placere sa cunosc inca o persoana ca si mine.

    • 20-year-old student from Germany … nu ma asteptam la un comment in romana. Mult succes cu scrisul, desi trebuie sa recunosc ca paranormalul ma eludeaza maxim ca scriitor, desi o buna prietena de-a mea scrie aproape exclusiv astfel de carti

      • iulialesley says:

        M-am mutat recent in Germania pentru studii, dar m-am nascut si am crescut in Timisoara. :)
        Paranormalul este singurul gen care il pot scrie, deoarece permite practic orice. Problema este ca sunt atatea laturi care pot fi explorate ca ajung intr-un final indecisa ce sa scriu. Am la activ 4-5 romane incepute. Experimentez cu fiecare idee ce imi trece prin cap, dar ma si plictisesc repede.

  22. Azhar Ali says:

    You write so brilliantly. Impressed!

  23. jimagain says:

    What a great bio!

  24. I love writing and drawing. Glad to know you here on WordPress.

  25. Luciana Mariano says:

    I doubt you can't draw. Who said it needs to be straight, anyway? Keep up the great work! Thanks for visiting my blog! I do the opposite: when I can't explain it, I paint. ;-))

  26. Nativegrl77 says:

    i like … " ONE"

  27. Sometimes we all get lucky and write something good.

  28. Kavish Vather says:

    You're incredible dude. I have a lot of learning to do.

  29. cswalt2010 says:

    I believe your wisdom is ahead of your age. Keep it up and good luck

  30. Your blog is beautiful, Cristian. I found you while looking for just that: beautiful blogs to nominate for the One Lovely Blog award. Take a look, and kudos for your VERY interesting work. http://teresayoung.com/2012/06/12/a-blog-award-nomination/

  31. So very nice to "meet" you Cristian! Lovely blog and wonderful writing…looking forward to seeing more :)


  32. landelusen says:

    Haha.. That line drawing complex almost had me soil myself laughing in the stockholm subway at rush hour. I owe you one it seems. You appear to be a great, witty writer, keep it up!

  33. bellesogni says:

    I think you're a little cutie and I wish you all the best!

  34. luveana says:

    I can't draw a straight line either :)

  35. Jeni Johnson says:

    Clever about page… :) a

  36. I also love 'Wanderer Above A Sea Of Fog': http://laurajenkinson.wordpress.com/2012/05/21/re

    I'm really enjoying your blog!


  37. StetotheJ says:

    “Wanderer above the Sea of Fog” by Caspar David Friedrich is indeed fantastic. Very nice blog sir.

  38. ham says:

    Just want to say that I really love the tagline in your header!

  39. Considering I'm a bibliophile and literature grad student, I LOVE your literary-minded blog! You've got flare, Cristian.

  40. Julia Vasinda says:

    Another Christmas baby! I was born the 24th! I'm excited to read more of your blog, this is all info that I need and have been too lazy/busy to research lately!

  41. Lilly Sue says:

    I love the comment about how you are still growing up…shouldn't we all still be growing up. If we are all "grown-up" what fun would that be? :)

    Short and sweet "about."

  42. Don't feel bad if you can't draw. All I can do is draw stick men and not that good at that even.

  43. your tagline is amazing. i love it.

  44. ochie says:

    " He can’t, however, draw a straight line. No matter how much he tries. Not even with a ruler."


  45. Let the line draw itself; let the song sing itself. And who can tell the dancer from the dance?

  46. Jazz: A (sort of) Foreword by Cristian Mihai. If you haven't read it, I urge you to do so. Good stuff man. Thanks! Thanks as well for visiting the blog of an indoor hobo. The straight line can only do so much, as it's destination is already set. If you ever "grow up", I will likely stop reading. It seems you have found your calling here, and hope I can do the same somewhere down the road… Great writing. Best wishes.

  47. Bookworm says:


    I'm new to your blog, but I honestly think you deserve this award nomination! Congrats and keep doing what you do best-sharing your knowledge and your talent [you ARE talented, you know!]


  48. Bookworm says:


    It would have helped if I included this link, right?! What can I say? my trigger finger is too fast this morning ;)


  49. Christian your writing is amiable humility as a disembodied idea. You words are bubbles blown into the space of innocence. The persona I hear is as simple and as pofound as a child's mind, a mind whose eyes can see the bubbles for what they are; resplendant, shining spheres of joy and magic. The child says "look!" and for a moment those of us who have grown so used to our eyes, adults with jaded eyes, can be here now and see the world as wonderful. You can still see magic and that is a profound ability.

  50. Well, Christian, I started a new little blog where I planned to drop my fuzzy and often crudely edited photos. Just a place to "keep" them where I could go back from time to time and look at them again without having to search my hard drive. Then, I kept noticing this interesting and intense little boy's face show up on the blog's "like" list. It is you. I don't quite know what to say here. I read a few of your posts about writing. They aren't really about writing. They are about finding who we are as humans and, only secondarily, communicating that information about the human condition to others. I am seventy years old. I don't believe I have read before in my life such an analysis of the introspective process written with such clarity that the reading of it seems to rise off the page in absolutely unfettered prose. I am astounded that this level of understanding could come from a boy of your age. It's incredible. I will read on, child. You make me happy. :-)

  51. beautywalk says:

    I make art, sculpture, painting, dance and have recently started writing but I can not sing nor am I very good at math. It is great to meet you. Yotaki Beautywalk

  52. georgipaech says:

    Hi there! I have nominated you for 'The Lovely Blog Award': http://1001kidsbooks.wordpress.com/2012/07/02/181…. I really enjoy reading your blog, and your thoughts on writing.

  53. Sciencelens says:

    Hi Cristian, just wanted to drop in and say how much I'm enjoying your blog – informative yet entertaining. Glad I found it! :)


  54. I fully agree with this; writers are a diverse breed.

  55. gardeniahung says:

    Keep Writing…Blogging is the Spice of Life!

  56. Gigi Galore says:

    Very cute:) Enjoy everything! Especially your passion! :)

  57. lissa16b says:

    Absolutely love your blog. I'm excited when someone loves and appreciates books and writing as much as I do. You really make me feel like someday my goal of publishing a book will happen. Keep posting! This stuff is golden Cristian!

  58. Hi Christain…don't worry about being able to draw a straight line. Just draw curving lines. They are just as good as straight lines but just not as straight. Singing is learned. I don't think anyone will ask you to sing but some day you might want to try. Practice is key and, of course, you really really need to fill your lungs all the way, let out the air, and be the note! Well, if you think about it, and listen to any modern music most band members can't sing either, You are not alone.

  59. sewnsusan says:

    i want to read your book just because your about page is so good!

  60. EllaDee says:

    i commented somewhere (lost now) that I downloaded your free short stories via Smashwords. They were all excellent but I enjoyed Memento Mori particularly. I've now invested a whole $0.99 x 2 on A Sad, Sad Symphony & Remember. E-Books make writers so accessible – thanks.

  61. What a cool blog. I loved it So creative. Well done!!!!

  62. Too many singers in this world, but not enough brilliant writers like you. You’re on the right path. And straight lines? No big deal.

  63. Julia Kovach says:

    Very cute write-up. It made me smile, Cristian. Thank you. Singing is over-rated anyways. Besides, you can't be brilliant at everything! xoxo Julia

  64. Buna ziua! Jazz is still king in my book. Improve has a heart, live has a pulse. Exploration is life. But, I believe, there are some things too large to seek and explore in this life. Unlocking the next life is the key, and that one is supplied to us. For everything else, search on and enjoy what you find.

  65. judith zinis says:

    Interesting. Did anyone ever tell Chris he looks a bit like Orhan Pamuk, the Turkish writer and Nobel Prize winner?

    Lovely blog you have here. Brilliant writing.

  67. paintpot55 says:

    crime, cemetery, death, short story, mistery –

    your beauty haunts me.

  68. Your books look intriguing! I just purchased Jazz for my Kindle Fire – can't wait to read it! Love your bio, too. I promise not to ask you to sing.

  69. nackynice says:

    You are sooo sooo cute! reading you blog! looking forward for following more from yours.

  70. Tapish Gupta says:

    The blog is simply amazing! You're a master in playing with words. Loved it.

  71. makuand says:

    Love you blog. Very interesting reads.

  72. Hello. I love your blog! So glad that I discovered it…I love to read and I love books so I can't wait to see what's to come!

    ~Lifestyle and Thoughts Chick

  73. Hanna says:

    What a cute introduction! I have just found your blog, but it's so good.

    You are a talent, I guess.

  74. Greetings Christian

    Long Time Fan,

    First Time Caller,

    If I could have your autograph, it would be an honor.

    I am a self-centered, greedy, person, and want to sell it on E bay.

    p.s. I promise you, I am totally heterosexual,

    But if you could sign a pair of old underwear,and send them to me,

    I would be greatly honored to have them also.

    The last minute bidding frenzy, masses of crazed, mouse-clicking, women (and small number of men,) promise to take your Fruit of the Loom's and get me that diamond tipped cane I have always wanted.

  75. Love the blog. I could not draw a straight line with a ruler either until an old retired art teacher told me to use the opposite hand. I am right handed, so I switched to the left. He said the myth was, if you can draw a straight line with a ruler using one hand that is the hand you were born to use. And I know that. Was left handed until I went into the First Grade at elementary school and the teacher didn't know how to teach a left handed student, so she made me write right handed.

  76. Jean Alphin says:

    You have a nice blog.

  77. gonerustic says:

    Just wanted to say I really like your banner – the notepaper edge looks great! =D

  78. I'd love to give you an autograph, but due to monetary constrains I can only e-mail you one. Or something like that. Or put it in a bottle and hope it reaches its destination.

  79. Don't fret too much about the growing up Chistian. I'm 56 and still feel like a bewildered six-year-old most of the time, and the world seems to make steadily less sense rather than more.

  80. jennaisme says:

    *Sings* Come on. Sing along ^w^

  81. alicematilda says:

    Nice to meet you Cristian. Really like your blog, so glad that I happened to stumble upon it!

  82. yeloCAR says:

    Straight lines are tough… stick figures are impossible.

  83. Hey man, cheers. Love the bio. I bet you're a kick-ass singer, and straight lines are seriously over rated. Most of my lines look as if drawn while seizing.

  84. Jordi says:

    Why "Cristian Mihai" is that your given name, a religious denomination, or is there a Mihai out there with little devil horns and a tail? :)

  85. Jordi says:

    OMG, I just saw you wrote a book. FOr REAL?!? So cool.

  86. Dear Christian, keep writing ;-) Greetings from London …Jacqueline Erasmus

  87. Mrs. Mutton says:

    Ah, Romanian, *and* a fellow "Christmas baby"! I *must* follow your blog! (One of my favorite priests is a Romanian.)

  88. I am the 936 person to like this blog. I suppose I should go check it out. Stay tuned. (I know you are just poised waiting for what I'm going to write, aren't you?)

  89. Cai says:

    Glad to see I'm not the only one who sucks at drawing straight lines even with a ruler. And to think I used to call myself an artist.

  90. D says:

    This is a very fun and interesting blog.

  91. roadwax says:

    You don't need a ruler, Cristian. The world is round. Following! :)

  92. Dear Cristian,

    With regard to drawing a straight line, I am in the same boat with you. Greetings from Indonesia!

  93. vijayofnvw says:

    I read about how straight lines challenge you and how you "did my best to pour greatness into every sentence I wrote". i am same. No, I am not referring to my post that you were good enough to like. Many things you have written about sync with my thoughts and feelings. Maybe writers draw from a common consciousness? I have been on your blog for a while now and I plan to return often. There is so much to love, admire and learn. Good going, Cristian!

  94. jenkakio says:

    Between you and I, I can't draw a straight line either….and sometime I write something good…but that's far few in between. LOL

    I love your intro. Sweet, short, and straight to the point.

  95. jaxpress says:

    Your blog is a wonderful place to come and take in all it has to offer. I wanted to show my appreciation by nominating you for the Reader Appreciation Award. And, we're all still growing up, some of us just don't know it :).

  96. haha I love this. If I ever meet you I promise you that I will coerce you to sing. I have a special way of doing that to people; me and my good friends vodka and Korean Karaoke.

  97. Love your blog and have nominated you for a Beautiful Blogger Award—

    No worries if awards aren't your thing. Just wanted to give you a nod.

    Have a great weekend!

  98. I love your blog…we pretty much the same, except you are a better writer…lol. I love that you hunt and share your information on publishing. It's helps others, and I try to do the same as to help others reach their dreams. I follow you today because you are AWESOME.

  99. oopsjohn says:

    Good Lord, Cristian – over ten thousand followers! And wonderfully exciting in-depth posts almost every day! Do you ever sleep?

  100. Keep me posted, love your first post, and do hope to read more!

  101. Carolyn Lane says:

    What do you say when you get *yet another* nomination for an award? (Apart from thank heavens that virtual mantlepieces don't need dusting). I've nominated you for the One Lovely Blog (again) because – well – you're doing great stuff. Of course you know The Rules – but if you need to refresh, they're on http://carolynlane.wordpress.com

    Thank you for the pleasure your writing gives me – and the wonderfully apt illustrations

  102. Carol says:

    I was born in the 1950s and I am still growing too!

  103. Straight lines are way overrated.

  104. Cristian, I have nominated you for the Inspiring Blogger Award. I’d explain why, but that would be unnecessary because I think a lot of people will agree when I say your posts are awesomely inspirational and filled with knowledge that can quench one’s thirst for information. Follow this link to acquire your award at your convenience. http://wp.me/p2tQ7q-37

  105. Love your About page. It reminds me of the (writing) voice of a dear friend.

  106. Crysloves says:

    Hahahahhaah! I totally cannot draw a straight line to save my life!! Funny never heard anyone else.say that. :)

    Christian Keep Up the Good Work :) :) :) I Have Faith in you Sla`xt My Friend. I had Traveled Down a Long Har Road, it was Quite the Journey, that Drove this Lil Indan Girl Nuts. I Know you can do this…Just Believe Within Yourself as I had :) You'll get your " Dream "…

  109. Plan to visit your blog more starting in the near future. I want to encourage you to keep writing because you do an excellent job. I especially enjoy your book reviews and like the fact that even though the reviewed book may not be something I normally would read, your review makes me want to check it out. Keep up the good words!

  110. Jim Brennan says:

    Great site, Christian… such practical advice with feeling and honesty. Wonderful! Thank you and keep it up.

  111. I've come to you by way of SaneSamantha. I can't wait to learn from you… even tho you're like waaaay younger than me! :>

    nice bio

  116. Elise says:

    HI Christian,

    Yes, growing up is overrated. Your ad below your bio is well placed! I expected a video feature with you in it! Your blog is very impressive.

  117. I've only read two posts and I am in tears. (the inspirational kind)

    Gratitude for putting the thoughts in my universe to words on a screen and now that little lump of "ugh" has transformed into "ahha!". Them's the best! Have a brilliant day!! x

  120. pamvbradford says:

    This is Paul.


    I got an MIT degree — in writing, if you can believe it — back in 1978. What did I do after I got the degree? I wrote, and wrote, and wrote. I filled an entire book case with writing notebooks. I probably averaged about one thousand words a day, so I got to a point where I was holding on to ten million words of prose, more or less. Then, just about three months ago, I threw it all away.


    By throwing out all those notebooks, I threw out that constipating little voice in my head that kept saying, "Is this good enough? Is this really and truly good enough?"

    Is there a point to all this? Maybe not, except to give you a tip of the hat for being sane in an endeavor where I was stark, raving mad!!!!

    A writer writes because he NEEDS to write; but there's no guarantee that anyone will need to read what he needs to write!


  121. Best 'about me' intro to be read. Look forward to delving further.

  122. Hey we share the same birthday, even though the year is different. Yes I am older than you, but I also feel like that I am still growing up!!

  123. Yaz says:

    Nice to meet you Cristian!

  124. Christian I liked your Jazz Excerpt. I was surprised, you write older than your age. It could be sit back 40 years. But not just time wise, you write like an older person. What I like about your writing is what I like about all good writers, it puts me in a different place and time, and keeps me there. Thanks.

  125. danbelton says:

    Oooo, I dunno – I reckon I'm perfectly average at both….But in all serious check out chaps like, say, Billy Childish….

    I can't draw a straight line with a ruler either.

  127. Hi So cool and quite interesting writing…try and try and it is possible to draw straight line…LOL….

  128. Teju says:

    Hey Chrisitian, you are super talented and your blog.is super awesome! I'm so glad to have stumbled upon you! Stay in touch :)

  129. Wow, you are inspiring! I wouldn't have guessed you were so young. I appreciate your posts about writing – they have helped me with my own quite a bit.

  130. swimwithnic says:

    You're trying to grow up? I know for sure a part of me will never grow up…I won't allow it to.

  131. johnydecali says:

    1990? Wow, you write like you have years of experience of writing. Keep the posts coming :)

  132. I never thought that being able to draw a straight line was necessary for writing – having a basic knowledge of grammar such as knowing the difference between it's and its is pretty useful though! Great blog.

  133. I really like what you have going on here

  137. Hi Christian,

    I love your intro and your writing. Amazing.

    I write because I have always loved words. I love to string words together to create a work of art that will express my innermost emotions and because if I don't, I fee I will truly explode. I write because I love to read words, hear words and feel words in each and every genre. They breathe into my soul. To me, writing is everything. It feeds my soul. It frees me soul. It gives me an avenue to share what I cannot share otherwise from deep within myself. There is so much more to say about why I do it, but, in short, these are reasons that I write.

    Please keep up the excellent work. You are a kindred spirit. I feel it.


    PS I can't sing either…:).

  138. Oh, men, Your blog is simply wonderful. Probably the best I have ever seen in my life!

  139. Very interesting blog Cristian. I found your essay on art and pain very thought provoking. Your site has so much to offer and I look forward to coming back repeatedly. All the best.


  140. Straight lines are over-rated. The imperfections are held to be admired and remembered.

    Nice blog.

  141. NeveR says:

    You're a bit awesome Cristian

  142. danroberson says:

    If you walk a crooked mile it's easy to see why walking straight lines cause some people to miss out on nature's beauty and details in life.

  143. vanjoelt says:

    hi Christ, great stuff here


  144. Andrew says:

    Cristian I want a singing challenge with you. I bet u can do great just as in writing.

    Good stuff here. Happy to be following.

  152. I just read your momento of Mori I find it fascinating, and I thank you for that! It is a good way to view death or come to terms with. But I Find it sad for the souls as well. Get back up and don't give up on these little ambitions of yours. They all amount. Thank you again. Carlie.

  153. You are an excellent writer. Only 22 years old. Such insightful thoughts so succinctly expressed. Very impressive. You have a gift. Keep using it!

  172. Jessica says:

  183. I laughed when I read that you can't draw a straight line, even with a ruler. I can't either. And here I thought I was alone in this craziness!

  184. mellow1964 says:

  188. Linda Joyce says:

    A Christmas birthday…don't you get tired of peple saying, "Gee, you must wish your birthday to be some other day." I was born on Christmas Eve. I have no idea what it's like to have a birthday any other day of the year, so no, I don't wish my birthday away. In fact, much of the world celebrates with me…and you. They light up trees and decorate. They give gifts… or have other traditions.

    As for singing…my husband hands me a hymnal in church, then turns his back to me. I can't sing a lick.


    Linda Joyce

  189. LOL. I'm with you on the drawing and singing front. Hang on, my dancing may be even worse, if that's humanly possible ;-)

  190. Hey Cristian, first of all great blog! Don't fret over the straight line, nothing in nature is straight anyway, so keep things natural with curves!

  191. jaksichja says:

    You are very gifted—enjoyed reading your blog –so far

  192. 0over0 says:

    You can't draw a straight line?!?! What did you go to school for?! (ha ha)

  193. rkpsmith12 says:

    Thanks! I enjoy writing and the blog obviously provides that opportunity. Since I'm also a tutor, I particularly like to write about educational issues. I hope I can cut through some of the crap and just provide down-to-earth information.

  194. Heartafire says:

    fascinating and fine blog, Christian.

  195. gdicm says:

    Never grow up Christian. Be like me. 'I'll forever be a boy.' Let God, our father which art in heaven, take responsibility for everything.

  196. dunkmcl says:

    Someone once told me only a madman can draw a perfect circle free hand; how that relates to straight lines, or singing, or writing I'll never know but I thought I'd mention it nonetheless.

    Great blog though!

  197. pegges says:

    nice to know that there is more people out there that can't draw a straight line. lol. greetings

  198. cohencycles says:

    I like your sense of humor… and can join you in both the lack of straight line ability and lack of tonality! neither of which stops me from doing.. Hey, thank you for stoppy by just fuffy… I want one day to be a good writer also.. looks like you have gotten an earlier start!

  199. Rosemarie says:

  239. lovelycollegegirl says:

    I can't draw a straight line either!! Even if I'm tracing over one!! :)

  240. Most things with a straight edge are painful. Who wants to draw a straight line, e? But for singing, I think that is pleasurable, go for it! Start when there's a storm outside. Thanks for liking Ronex.

  241. meenas17 says:

    My child I would never ask you to sing or draw a straight line. Even I am not good at drawing a line straight. But you can jump and play with me. Your like on my post made me happy. Visit the blog as often as you can.

    We have the same birthday! Although, I am 30 years older…

  243. I am with you on the drawing! Luckily, I can sing :). Thank you for visiting my page. I love getting visits from fellow writers and stumbling upon great material.

  244. MJ Valentine says:

    Thanks for liking my post! I giggled when I read your 'About' page- very sweet! I can't draw to save my life- us folks ought to just stick to writing, don't you agree?! MJ x

  245. Cristian, thank you very much for viewing and like-ing my illustration. I was looking through your literature pieces, and was very captivated by the story line of your, A sad, sad, symphony.

    I could relate to many aspects of the hunger to make greater meaning of what it is that I am trying to leave in this world or convey to the people through my arts, and though I have not read a single book in many years, I would love to read your book.

    Sincerely Yours-

  246. Jenny Cantu says:

    Hi Cristian! :) So neat to connect with you in this way after finding that you read my latest post, "The Impossible Ends When Faith Begins!" You would never guess from my name, but my parents moved from Romania to the States in 1980… I was born here shortly after and raised in the Romanian Pentecostal community.

    You made an interesting observation here regarding Romania's current state – that much has changed over the course of the last ten years. I haven't been back since 2004 and I am curious to know in what ways it has changed. So, if you wouldn't mind, enlighten me. :)

    Thanks again for dropping by my little corner.

  247. HI Cristian,

    I really enjoy reading your blog. Just want to let you know that I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blog Award.

  251. siriusblu says:

    Cristian Halo!

    I have a friend from Romania, named Valenta. Her only purpose at this point,

    as she sees it – is bringing to wider knowledge the plight of the separated Romanians behind the still existing Iron Curtain – from the invasion of Bessarabia in 1941. They live behind mine fields, forgotten, herding sheep, high in the Pamir mountains, beyond anyone's notice, or at this point, seeming care.

    We are all included, longing ghosts and all. Writing tells our story.

  252. Lorem Ipsum says:

    The word "prolific" seems to fall well short of describing your output, as far as completed books go. However, it becomes an even more amazing feat, by my reckoning, if I have indeed added up your age properly from the date of birth you have given. Well done!

  253. bluemoondreamer says:

    Thanks for the like!

  254. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I am happy to hear the situation has opened up in Romania and you can write your blog. Dianne

    You would not let us post on ‘TO ALL THE TEACHERS’ so I’m posting here.
    Sounds like you got a rough time from a bunch of teachers.
    You have stumbled onto something that most people do not know and do not want to understand….. Teachers don’t teach………. students learn.

    You are in a very small club of people who have worked this out.
    Well done.

    So great to know that I am not the only young writer out there – my birthday is the 6th Dec 1990, so am marginally your senior, but still refreshing to know that there are others my age doing the same thing ! Great blog x

  348. Hello Cristian,
    I have nominated you for the “Versatile Blogger Award”. I really like what you do.
    Kind regards

  349. dawnspitfire says:

    Oh that’s just cute!

  350. veraoleks says:

    Great blog – keep it up!

  351. Cristian, do you still living in Romania? A friend of mine here in Gettysburg asked me. Told me she reads and speaks Romanian, which I never knew about her. She thought it would be fun to know you if you lived nearby. I contend it would still be fun for her to know you regardless of where in the world you are. Now that I think about it, I have another friend, also from Romania (you would like her – she used to be a model) and she is living near here. Are all Romanians good looking???

  352. nancyrae4 says:

    Awesome blog. It’s inspiring to see what other writers are up to.

  353. Anima Libera says:

    Thank you for following. M-a surprins sa vad ca esti si tu roman, de varsta mea, din Cta. Scrii foarte frumos…am sa revin sa citesc mai mult!

    Best wishes to you and your future book.

  354. papermashed says:

    Absolutely love your blog. I’m looking forward to perusing through your many posts, and am looking forward to reading your stories. Amazon here I come. Your blog is an inspiration for aspiring writers like me.

    Thank you so very much for following my blog. I’m looking forward to releasing my first novel on amazon too in the coming few weeks… fingers crossed.

    Much luck with your ventures. I shall be visiting. :)

  355. treyzguy says:

    Digging it…although I get flashbacks about rulers

  356. One of the fascinating blogs I came across here at WordPress. Keep those wonderful posts coming! :-)

    I also nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blog Award – http://wandergeselle.wordpress.com/2013/07/13/the-very-inspiring-blogger-award/.

    Warm regards,

  357. Ruth Amick says:

    As a fellow writer, I am really enjoying going through your posts! Don’t worry about the straight line issue. My late friend, the incredible artist Beatrice Wood was loved for her works throughout the world; her ceramics were always free of perfect lines. And her well-known drawings? Charming, rather naughty stick figures…so endearing. :)

  358. Buna seara Cristian! I really enjoyed to discover your blog and reading your posts.

  359. ramblingjess says:

  360. maddy0290 says:

    Oh my God! Awesome!!

    Cristian, just so you can know why I am saying OMG! Since I was a kid, I have been saying the same line “I can’t draw a straight line! Even with a ruler!!”haha…. I was so happy when I read your about me.. Looking forward to exploring your blog more… :)

  361. Always looking forward to new post. Ann

  362. Gina says:

    Hi! I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! Have a lovely day!


  363. Donna Cowden says:

    I loved “Memento Mori!” What a wonderful short story and fresh perspective. Thanks for the follow too. I’ll be back to read more! Have an awesome weekend.

  364. Glynis Jolly says:

    I can’t draw a straight line either. I’m just clicked to follow you so I will be back.

  365. Good to meet you Christian. I look forward to reading your posts!

  366. If you desire to write a straight line, never stare at the pencil, or force it across the page, but rather focus on the point where you want the line to end and the pencil will find it’s way there.

  367. Hey there, You’ve done a great job. I’ll definitely digg it and personally suggest to my friends.
    I’m sure they will be benefited from this site.

  368. Hi there! Thanks for sharing a great blog :)

  369. mk says:

    Hi , You are doing a great job. I liked your blog very much . It is my dream to write stories and books but for some reasons I have not been able to write any . My best wishes are with you .Keep up the good work :)

  370. Thomas Medina says:

    Nice to know that I am not the only person who cannot master the straight line.

  371. Silverleaf says:

    You have a ton of followers and awards. Your writing is fantastic! I’ve nominated you for a versatile blogger award. I see you have been nominated before – hope you don’t mind another one!


  372. Tisha says:

    Interesting Blog! Keep up the Great Work.

  377. aminatamarie says:

    Hello Cristian! I´m really positiv surprised :D Keep going! Best wishes!

  378. I’m an artist and even I have trouble drawing straight lines without a ruler!

  379. Drawing a straight line was never the measure of any artist worth their salt. Giotto made it drawing perfect circles.

  380. I can barely draw stick people.. Best of luck with your blog and keep writing !!

  381. thank you for being part of my journey from private to public :)) best, christa

  382. great work.. visiting again

  383. Akira Okihu says:

    Nice meeting you. I stumbled across this blog because of JPF Goodman. I am also a Romanian blogger. If you did get his comment it is nice,if you didn’t check your spam folder. Anyway,I will be vising again,to see more about this blog. Good luck with you indiegogo!

  384. raizadesu says:

    Haha! We’re same.. I can’t draw a straight line even if I have my ruler! XD
    .. I can only create straight lines in microsoft word (if you know what I mean XD) .. I really love your blog because every post you’re creating is very inspiring.. Your posts inspire me a lot! Kepp writing and inspire people like me.. Thank you very much! Thank you for everything.. =))

  385. spinoza1111 says:

    It’s easy to draw a straight line. Here is the secret: look where you’re going not where you have been.

    That’s it. Just look where you’re going not where you have been.

    The line may not always be perfectly straight, but here’s another secret. No line drawn by man or machine, using my technique, using a ruler or “T” square, or drawn inside a computer is ever a “line”, let alone a straight line.

    Do you know why?

    It is because any line drawn anywhere including a computer screen has a width w > 0 but a REAL line’s width is exactly equal to … zero. In other words, a real line is invisible.

    If a geometry teacher draws a triangle on the board and asks what is its area, remain silent until he tells you whether he is referring to the triangle on the outside or inside of the drawn lines.

    It gets worse inside a computer without line-drawing hardware, for on such a computer the lines are “pixelated” and calculating their non-zero area is quite difficult…but their area is non-zero and there are an infinite number of ideal triangles between the outside and inside of the drawn triangle.

    So. young fellow, here’s to you and confusion to anyone who talks about “straight lines”.

  386. scribblersnscribes says:

    Ah yes, the straight line elude’s me too. Not only can I not use a ruler but I can’t even get the already straight line to stay straight on the computer. And by the way thanks for the follow.

  387. Andreya says:

    Cristian, what a fabulous little blog you got here, I love your kooky style and I look forward to reading some more!! Lots of love!!

  388. rmudge says:

    I think that “growing up” has to be one of those weird myths in life. I don’t think I’ll ever quite grow up either. Don’t worry about the straight lines; lines that aren’t straight have so much more character! Life isn’t about achieving some pinnacle of perfection. Life is more about making awesome art with all of the broken pieces. Keep your dreams alive :)

  389. blueroselady says:

    Dear Cristian
    When I celebrate Christmas, I would think of you.
    Everyone is born with a purpose,
    sometimes we take a lifetime to discover it before we can pursue it,
    but You are born to be a writer!

  390. doncharisma says:

    Hey, I’ve awarded you a “The Versatile Blogger Award”, yay !



    Warm regards

    Don Charisma

  391. sassymikee says:

    Sooo many comments, it took time to be here. Hehe.
    Great posts Mr. Mihai! I can’t draw a straight line either.

    Keep it all up and all the best to you! :)

  392. Christina MacQuarrie says:

    Nothing like keeping it short, simple and interesting.

  393. Don’t feel bad about not being able to draw.. I feel like my life is but a series of failed attempts at being artistic. oh well . hahaha

  394. Hey Cristian,

    I reviewed your book The Writer: http://artsandyouthlove.wordpress.com/2013/11/16/book-review-the-writer-by-cristian-mihai/

    Thanks for making it free; getting it made my day :)

  395. Great blog Cristian ~

    In my opinion straight lines are over-rated and singing is speaking as if the words were already there in your heart = please never confuse the content with the form.

  396. nuclearmom says:

    We share a birthday :)

  397. I was born a few days before Christmas, so my birthday is often completely overshadowed by one more important than me. And you…you were born on Christmas day! Oh my!
    Happy Birthday/Merry Christmas and best wishes for the coming year, Cristian.

  398. ahgapito says:

  400. serend1p1ty says:

    Wow, your blog is quite impressive! Looking forward to new posts!

  401. JaneSirius says:

    There’s something about the way you write that keeps me coming back for more. I recently stumbled on your blog and it appears I have something other than mine to keep me entertained. Keep up with the good work!

  402. I was in Constanta in 2010. Really liked it. Beaches in the area were great…wish I could have spent some time there.

  403. Emily says:

    Now I really wanna know what happens if I ask you to sing.

  404. ernestwhile says:

    That’s a pretty awesome biography!

  405. hodagibreel says:

Pretty sure the true to life biography will lead you, and aspiration will show from now on, a known blogger with thousand followers is born. Means interesting scope and write ups. More power to you.

  406. RC says:

  411. Wow, great blog, you have grown by leaps and bounds! Congratulations on it.

  412. Deidre M. Simpson says:

    I love the book cover for Jazz. Ever since I saw it, I’ve been hearing “Smooth Operator” by Greg Adams in my head.

  413. zaffida says:

    I am still trying to understand what you blog about but there is some great stuff here. :)

  414. CrazyGuyinThailand says:

    Awesome blog :)

  415. One word, “Delightful.” Deep bows for the versatility of what you are providing us.

  416. beachblogger says:

    I love Caspar David Friedrich … thanks for reminding me of him …

  417. I thought I was the only! I can’t draw a straight line either! Rulers are pointless to me.

  418. curtisbull says:

    “He can’t, however, draw a straight line. No matter how much he tries. Not even with a ruler.”

    Made me laugh

  419. EPM says:

    Great site, Cristian. Showing all us newcomers just what can be done with the form. Many thanks for the support over at my place, early days there so all support is much appreciated. All the best – E.P.

  446. emmakwall says:

    I’m sure you could draw a straight line if you really tried :)

    Cute picture! Nice to meet you.

  447. LOL- a kid after my own heart! :D

  448. I can’t draw for the life of me.

  449. samkhan13 says:

    Dear Christian,

    You have valuable pieces of writing that are genuinely worth reading. You certainly deserve to keep blogging and decimating your work via other channels. For certain, it must be evident to you that commercial success within a certain time period isn’t the most critical indicator of how important your writing is. Indeed if you have anything at all, that you believe is going to benefit even a single soul out there at some point of time, you might as well give it to them via your blog. I support your endeavors mate! Keep it up.

    And perhaps this blog will be helpful to you as it has helped me: http://writersfizz.com/


  450. angie1001 says:

    Cristian Mihai blogul tau este minunat! Iar engleza ta este incredibila.
    Really amazing….

  451. interesting blog and mind bubbling..

  452. kinneret says:

    Very interesting. Part of my family was from Romania and I visited Bucharest with my grandfather–I think 1990. Right before the wall came down. At the time there were still some horse drawn carriages on the highway riding alongside buses.

  453. WOW! i don’t think i could fancy wrap or use some kind of fancy adjectives, ur work in here is plainly WOW!,.

  454. jeddacp says:

    don’t think ive ever drawn a straight line without the help of a ruler… then again, i also can’t draw a perfect circle :(

  455. tedwardredd says:

    I liked your facebook page. Every day you post something inspirational and I always share it. Thank you for spreading inspiration and positivity! I aspire to motivate people the way you do. Thanks! :D

  456. Samjoth says:

    Beautiful posts !!!

  457. You are an interesting young man! Excellent blog.

  458. Have been out of cyber space for a while…happy to find you once again. Ann

  459. I draw hearts and balloons but never straight lines. They are overrated and too Establishment.

    You definitely have talent, Dear Sir.

  460. SomerEmpress says:

    I like what I see here, kindred spirit. Be well. Stay inspired. Hope is well worth having.

  461. <3Verity says:

    I’ve just read the blurb for Dream City, it was pretty interesting and I thought you might like this poem – I’m also going to put it on my blog.
    By Joe Brainard
    Death is a funny thing. Most people are afraid of it, and yet
    they don’t even know what it is.

    Perhaps we can clear this up.

    What is death?

    Death is it. That’s it. Finished. “Finito.” Over and out. No

    Death is many different things to many different people. I
    think it is safe to say, however, that most people don’t like it.


    Because they are afraid of it.

    Why are they afraid of it?

    Because they don’t understand it.

    I think that the best way to try to understand death is to
    think about it a lot. Try to come to terms with it. Try to really
    understand it. Give it a chance!

    Sometimes it helps if we try to visualize things.

    Try to visualize, for example, someone sneaking up behind
    your back and hitting you over the head with a giant hammer.

    Some people prefer to think of death as a more spiritual
    thing. Where the soul somehow separates itself from the mess
    and goes on living forever somewhere else. Heaven and hell being
    the most traditional choices.

    Death has a very black reputation but, actually, to die is a
    perfectly normal thing to do.

    And it’s so wholesome: being a very important part of
    nature’s big picture. Trees die, don’t they? And flowers?

    I think it’s always nice to know that you are not alone. Even
    in death.

    Let’s think about ants for a minute. Millions of ants die
    every day, and do we care? No. And I’m sure that ants feel the
    same way about us.

    But suppose—just suppose—that we didn’t have to die.
    That wouldn’t be so great either. If a 90-year-old man can hardly
    stand up, can you imagine what it would be like to be 500 years

    Another comforting thought about death is that 80 years or
    so after you die nobody who knew you will still be alive to miss

    And after you’re dead, you won’t even know it.

  462. Really want to hear you sing now ha ha ha :-)

  463. vinnieh says:

    What a great blog you have.

  464. Matthias says:

    I can’t draw straight lines with a ruler either. I’m also only 6 months older than you.

  465. michellespagefornonni says:

    I enjoy your blog. You do much deep thinking for someone so young. I hope you will keep writing. God bless you.

  466. Cristian, you have such an interesting blog. I like it a lot!

  467. jaredb1234 says:

    I wish that I was as a great as a writer as you. you have such a nice blog.

  468. Great stuff. I am now a fan.

    Greetings from Texas

  469. I like the voice you use here in your “About” section. It draws one in. :-)

  470. Wow, what a great “About” page! I can’t draw a straight line either, and according to my husband, I can’t walk one either! (he says I’m always bumping into him, ha!). Looking forward to viewing your blog! :-)

  471. Salut din Texas!!

    Laurie Kendrick

  472. fefeeley412 says:

    I adore you – you beautiful man. Cheers!

  473. musaafirana says:

    Wow Cristian,
    It’s wonderful to know that there have been others tok who couldn’t draw a straight line. I have struggled with that, all my childhood. :)

  474. allythejedi says:

    Best blog bio ever!

  475. Hey Cristian! Ma bucur ca te-am gasit!
    I’m happy to find a fellow writer from Romania. I hope you’re well, I’m looking forward to read your work. Your bio and a lot of your blurb texts resonate fully with me.

  476. Joy says:

    Great job on your blog, Cristian! Keep up the great work!

  477. Hemant Sahu says:

    Must appreciate the words you choose to define some of the greatest feelings of living kind.

  478. Kooky Chic says:

    Hahaha I can’t draw a straight line either but I can draw a mean circle.

  479. tigre23 says:

    Curved, round or uneven lines are much more interesting anyway! I can’t draw a straight line either! Thanks for sharing!

  480. Cristian, I am with you! I could not draw a straight line to save my life- thankfully this situation has never come up or I would be dead right now. Actually I do not think that any real humans can draw straight lines. If someone can draw a straight line they are probably from another planet.

  481. Michael Snow says:

    Wow, this just blows me away…almost 5000 likes! (I count 5 as good).

  482. That’s a brilliant “about”! My favorite I’ve read. Cheers! :) And WOW! Rock on!!!
