40 reasons why do I write #challenge

40 reasons why do I write #challenge

A few days ago I saw this post on positivewriter.com: 40 reasons why do you write. Beside listing the author’s 40 reasons, the post asks writers to take the challenge, write 40 reasons and post on your blog. How could I resist? At first I thought finding 40 would prove difficult, but in the end once …

Short movies and illusions #inspiration

Where does the idea for a story come from? To tell you the truth, as a reader, I never really think about it. When a good story grabs my attention, it’s unusual for me to linger about its genesis. As a writer though I’m always well aware of what inspire my stories and I often …

Writer, come home! Join #TribeWriters2.0

A few days ago, when I first logged in the brand new version of Tribe Writers from my smartphone, the first sentence I saw was this: You are here: Home. I knew that the sentence was about my position in the website, but this made me smile, because that’s how Tribe Writers make me feel: …

Facing the truth

Facing the truth

Wanting to be a writer is clearly not enough to become one. And inspiration alone will lead you to nowhere. Being a writer requires a lot of hard work, commitment and sacrifice. It’s difficult, but not impossible. If you made choices that had nothing to do with writing in your life, it’s even more difficult. …

Only trust writers who reads a lot #whatImreading

Only trust writers who reads a lot #whatImreading

Tell me… …would you trust a chef who doesn’t eat? Or a singer who doesn’t listen to music? I don’t think so. Then why should you trust a writer who doesn’t read? A few days ago I was thinking about this and I realised that lately I’ve been reading far less than I used to. I …

The micracle of accountability

The micracle of accountability

Yesterday I was at lunch and, as usual on Friday, I was wondering about my next blog post. Let’s face the truth, I’m not consistent at blogging. I try very hard to plan in advance, to decide what to write, to establish branches and folow them but in the end I often feel like I …

What I learnt from failing

What I learnt from failing

Did you noticed? It’s May already. Which means that Camp NaNoWriMo is over. This time I can’t brag about winning because I didn’t reach my goal of 60000 words but I can sound wise by telling you some of the things I learnt from this experience (some I already knew but it’s good to have a …

Be confident! If you don’t believe, no one else will

Be confident! If you don’t believe, no one else will

In some of my previous posts I stated the importance of never giving up on your dreams and I talked about some strategies to make room for your passion in everyday life. But lately I realized that I forgot something essential. Before deciding not to give up, before planning how to accomplish your goals, before …
