The Ultimate Guide to Inspiration, irevuo.art, The Dash

Hi friends,

I believe there are two things we can’t help but doing, no matter what: we think and we dream. If that is so, then why not think and dream big? And, of course, act accordingly?

That being said, I am proud to announce the release of irevuo‘s first e-book, that is the first book released with irevuo as publisher. That’s one of the goals, one of the dreams. To have irevuo release all my titles, and other authors, eventually.

I present to you The Ultimate Guide to Inspiration.

It happened again, didn’t it?

Another week or month has passed, and you’ve made zero progress on your writing.

Deep down you know your writing is important, but it seems impossible to take consistent action

What’s going on here?

The truth is, you don’t feel inspired.

You can’t help but marvel at other writers who seem to come up with one great idea after another.

How do you get there?

How do you find the inspiration you need in order to become the prolific, popular, and successful writer you have always dreamed of becoming?

It’s simple. This guide contains 99 ways to find inspiration.

Available on the e-store as an e-book download for only $4.99 $1.99.

You can download a sample and read it here.

Read here.

 

This e-book is not only fun to read, entertaining, and useful, but it’s also a great way to support irevuo’s future projects.


In other news, irevuo‘s domain is irevuo.art.  Fancy, right?

Thought it’s better suited, since the website is, in fact, dedicated to all things art.

Do check it out here, and if you do not mind, do follow us on Instagram or like us on Facebook(because we’re close to 600 likes).

 


Last but not least, I’d like to thank Stephanie for her generous donation towards the creation of the new website, The Dash Project. We’re currently about $320-$330 from reaching our goal.

If you wish to donate any amount you see fit, you can do so here. It would help me create this website sooner rather than later, and get to work on creating some of the best motivational content you’ll find on the web.

Be the hero of your own story

“We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. We are all helpless. It just depends on the day.” — Brad Meltzer

The biggest problem people have is their belief that they shouldn’t have problems. They have this strange idealism that forces them to believe in fairy tales that can barely exist on paper, let alone in the real world.

Thus, hell is not a place, but rather a feeling you carry around with you. The sense of “not quite.” The bitter feeling of “almost” that fills up your days.

The idea that you are stuck on the fifth chapter of your story and can’t write a single sentence anymore. Your main character does not know he’s the hero yet. He’s yet to figure himself out, has yet to understand his greater purpose.

To most people, it’s as if some part of their soul is missing, and what’s left is condemned to forever miss that part. Continue reading

Dreams are real

“People think dreams aren’t real just because they aren’t made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.”Neil Gaiman

There are two types of people in the world: the realists and the idealists. Some realists even go as far as to call themselves cynics. I’d just say they’re idealists who once upon a time got their hearts broken. Continue reading

A writer…

dreams2

“A writer is a writer because, even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.”Junot Diaz

I write because I know that I couldn’t live without my stories, without my characters, without my strange habit of angrily punching those keys on the keyboard late every night. Continue reading

Are you holding back? Are you staying too close to the ground?

“Never regret thy fall,
O Icarus of the fearless flight
For the greatest tragedy of them all
Is never to feel the burning light.”

Oscar Wilde

Staying too close to the ground. Being afraid of the fall to such an extent that you never even spread your wings and fly. The lies you tell yourself, the life you have to live because of those lies.

It’s pathetic, is it not? All the excuses, no matter how valid. It’s pathetic to be envious of other people’s success, to be ignorant to the point of trying to find some external factors as to why you can’t do it and they can.

It’s heartbreaking. Continue reading

What I Learned About Life by Being a Dreamer

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”  Harriett Tubman

My father would always jokingly (or maybe not) ask me how do you call those who have a lot of ideas? I’d say “idealists” and he’d start laughing and say “idiots.”

I have always dreamed big, I have always imagined myself reaching for the stars.

When I was six years old, I’d dream that one day I’d travel to the US, change my name to Chris Packlem, and become the richest man in the world. I’d own all the world’s largest companies, and have an assistant by the name of John. I had absolutely no idea how that was going to happen, and I thought that I’d start by opening a grocery store somewhere in my twenties and then things would take off. But I had no doubt about it.

Do You Know Who You Are?

“We don’t know who we are until we see what we can do.” – Martha Grimes

Who are you? What defines you as a person? What qualities do you possess? But what about flaws? What do you want most in life? What are you afraid of the most?

If only it were so simple to answer those questions. A person is the sum total of all his experiences until the present moment. Experiences and reactions to those experiences. Not only the story, but the change that accompanied said story.

What I’m really trying to say is that we change. We become more and more what the world wants us to be, or we become more and more who we want to be. Either way, we change.

But I strenuously believe that we must set our own course, that we must aspire to be the kind of person we’d love to meet, even though it’s no easy task.
