”I completely fell in love with Cristian Mihai’s beautiful way of writing. His main character, Chris Sommers, is an embodiment of realism. His persona was much attune to what some of us feel about ambition, love, and the realization of heartbreaking disappointment. I felt a connection to him in a much deeper level than I’ve ever known. Mihai’s writing style just reaches out to you, captures you – without letting go for a moment. It’s also very personal that you just can’t help but love the main protagonist. There were times where it pained me to stop reading because I wanted to note down my favorite quotes from the novel because it was just that amazingly brilliant.” – E.S. praise for Jazz.

”This book was very unexpected. It made me think about what is means to be a writer, what the process of creation means not only to the creator but to those who are affected by what has been written. Much of what Mihai says here will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to put words on paper.” – Cynthia Dumarin, praise for The Writer.

”I was drawn in after reading the first page. Being a “hopeless” romantic I could empathize with both characters but I felt a connection with “him”. The authors description of loneliness, excitement, regret and pain is so intense, I became emotional while reading. It is gripping, honest and touching. Beautiful story…” – Melanie Lawson, praise for 2:22 AM.

More than words

Sometimes I want to write something beautiful, something meant to inspire. And this burning hunger grows inside me, consumes me to the point that I can’t write anymore. And it all feels pointless. It seems as if I will never be able to write more than just words, more than a nice story.

After all, writers are also readers. And all the stories that left a mark on us appear to be much more than just words. More than simple stories, they’re the fuel that ignites what’s most human in us, the engine that has driven mankind towards greatness. Continue reading

Passion

passion“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”Howard Thurman

Ask yourself this simple question: what makes that little muscle inside your chest beat? I mean, really, really beat. Insanely strong, in such a way that you can feel it furiously pumping blood inside your body. What’s your passion? What do you live for? What are you willing to die for? Continue reading

“Showing up is 80 percent of life.” Woody Allen

Showing up. At your job, at a meeting. Sitting down at your desk because it’s time to write.

When you feel like it or not.

When you’d much rather do anything else.

Discipline requires tremendous mental effort.

It’s the extra mile, the extra routine, the two or three hundred more words that you write.

That little extra is what really makes the difference.

Showing up when you don’t feel like it, when you just want to act lazy and sit in bed and listen to music all day long.

Success is all about showing up. That’s it.

Show up. Do your thing. Finish stuff.

It’s that easy and that hard. That simple and that complicated.

Legacy

“We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.”  – Chuck Palahniuk

Sometimes, when I’m alone, I ask myself all sorts of questions. Am I building something now? Am I the person I’ve always wanted to be? If not, am I becoming that person or did I get lost on the way? Are my dreams coming true? You know, the type of questions one does not like to ask. But I keep asking them, I keep trying to find answers. Continue reading

Eight billion people

There are what? Eight billion people on this planet right now? Eight billion. Wow. More than ever. Living in the most comfortable conditions ever, having access to technology and medical care that a mere hundred years ago would have been inconceivable. The things we can do now… it just leaves you breathless, right?

We should have wings. We should. We should be proud of our achievements as a race and try to do more. We should love each other and protect each other and work hard on creating the kind of society that can achieve even greater things. We should believe that we are capable of anything. We should be concerned with living healthy lives, with being fit and strong and educated and well balanced. We should strive for greatness. We should inspire and let ourselves be inspired.

Yet, we don’t. Continue reading
