“Dance….and for years later you’re dancing around your kitchen with a pint of milk in your hand. The windows are open wide, the neighbours are still awake, and they are watching you fall in love with being alive.” – Morsus Engel

November novel writing month

NaNoWriMo has started and this year I am writing a non-fiction book. I am a proud participant in the program for eight years. This year my strategy is to write 600 words in the morning, 600 hundred during the day and 600 in the evening. I must say, it is working like magic. Photo by […]
