A Month in a Writer’s Life – January 2019

As you might recall, I took December somewhat off to get my “game plan” ready for 2019. So, when January came, I was ready and motivated. Of course, as Red Hot Chili Peppers sang in an unrelated (and slightly explicit) song, nothing ever goes according to plan. Distraction hit me from the least expected direction, causing a lot of heartache. It’s enough to say that someone whom I considered a friend disappointed my trust in the worst possible way, and the ripples from that single event caused waves throughout my month. Yet, that unpleasant situation aside, I think it’s possible to announce my January as a moderate success. Continue reading “A Month in a Writer’s Life – January 2019”

A Month in a Writer’s Life – December 2018

December has been a bit of a blur, but come to think of it, the whole year seemed like that. Due to our move across the states, we’d lost pretty much the first four months of it, packing, organizing, settling in, and working out problems that arose along the way. In the end, it left with me with a feeling of constantly trying to catch up with everything and never being on top of my game. Yet, looking back, I can’t say it was a bad year.

All the Novels I Write – the 2018 Edition

Back in November 2016, I shared the list of all the novels I was writing at the time. They were in different stages, from rough outlines to drafts that had been revised many times. Since two years have passed, I think it’s time for an update. So, if you’re curious what many projects I’m currently working on, dive right in!

A Month in a Writer’s Life – October 2018

As the year comes close to an end, I feel like I’m finally regaining my footing. I never expected that the move across the States that happened back in March would affect me so much and for so long, but it also came with a few other changes in my life, including starting to work more intensively as a freelancer. So the process of “getting back to the routine” was constantly disrupted, and whenever I felt like I was just getting there, something else came up. I’m still behind a few things, and I have little hope to catch up, but I’m doing my best moving forward. Continue reading “A Month in a Writer’s Life – October 2018”

The Wordwitch: A Writer’s Life in Pictures – October

In October, I was busy drawing dragonflies some of you have already seen on my Facebook page or Instagram as I was taking part in the #Inktober challenge, but it didn’t mean that I forgot about the Wordwitch. Continue reading “The Wordwitch: A Writer’s Life in Pictures – October”

A Month in a Writer’s Life – September 2018

Another month bites the dust, getting us closer to the end of the year. It’s been another strange month. I haven’t done as much as I had hope to, but at the same time, many things saw slow and steady progress, making me hopeful for the future. Continue reading “A Month in a Writer’s Life – September 2018”

The Story from the Bag That Was Stolen

When I first arrived in Ireland, I lived at my friends’ place, on the north side of Dublin. The area consisted of indistinctive dark gray houses that must have been built back in 70’s, and small gardens that weren’t much to look at in late autumn. Once I found a job, I moved closer to it, and for the next eight years I became the resident of Dublin’s south side. Continue reading “The Story from the Bag That Was Stolen”
