I love books, and I love colors...as a kid I used to drool over boxes of pencil, I could not resist the pull of all those colors in perfect gradations of happiness. So, when I designed the covers for my books I tried to make them collector items, irresistible...just like a case of brand new pencils. Do you think I managed? :)

Yes, social media can be a distraction, but it also provides the social interaction a writer needs but has no time to get.
People are the juice of the world, personally, my inspiration and fascination.
Gay, straight, sad, happy, funny, boring, angry, spent, conservative, liberal...and everywhere in between...An amazing slice of humanity is right here on the web, and for that I am grateful.
If I feel disheartened, so do some of you. If I need to laugh, you post kitties. Social media makes me angry, happy, and sad. Maybe I am an emotional mess, hypersensitive to humanity, but maybe you know what I mean.
Not to mention that I would never be able to pull through the ridiculous amount of work needed to write books if I did not have the support of the most amazing group of readers. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart <3
*back to writing*

Oh, freedom of speech! I LOVE books that make me uncomfortable, that make me think…because they make me GROW. It's "just" words…so why censor them? Why are we so scared of words when we constantly see death, gore, shooting, decapitations on TV for FUN? Yeah, that's what most TV shows are about. Well, I'd rather turn on my brain.
Show don’t tell means that rather than explaining to the reader what a character is feeling you show them through action or behavior.
For example, rather than saying:
July was angry.
July stomped out, slamming the door.
Here is a very useful cheat sheet I found to translate emotions into body language:
There is more on the original article, right here, enjoy ^_^
The Italian Saga continues!
Italy, the 80s. Learn, laugh, love. "Addictive!"
