This book is a collection of short stories I have written over the course of the past five years. The tales are connected in ideas, not in plot or characters, carrying the theme of belonging to the in-between of moments, emotions and experiences. It ranges from unfortunate, untimely meetings, detachment in interpersonal relationships, to conversations with death. Continue reading “The In-Between: A Septet of Stories”
So, the new year is upon us, in some parts of the world it has already arrived. With regard to that, Happy New Year!
By now, you probably made a list of things you plan and want to do, and I hope that you stick with those decisions and that they work out for you.
As for me, the next period will be one of introspection and recollection. First and foremost, I will focus on finishing the novel I’ve been working on for a while and my intention is to finish it and have it in the publishing process by the end of this new 2020. And, I have decided to fully dedicate myself to this objective, if I want to accomplish it. That means I’m going to take a break from this blog, just to sort things out with myself and which directions I should take in the future. There’s even a possibility to delete the blog entirely, or at least rebrand it, again. So, when and if I come back, this place is going to be something different, maybe dealing with some of my other interests, such as photography.
I wish you all the best and be brave to pursue your goals!

To prepare for writing of high fantasy, you need to have a full table meal. The lore of yore demands it so. And, it should be something that will make you reminisce of old days with each bite. Everything is in the service of that special, nostalgic kick, and of course, the ever-present magic of the world you’re about to build on your paper. This is why the dish consists of several parts, which includes meat, potatoes, and of course, cabbage salad. Sure, this particular recipe is not for vegetarians, but if you want to make a meatless version, just uses whichever substitute you like.
This is going to be a bit of a rant. It’s been on my mind for a while, and now I think I’ve finally found the words of it. However, I cannot say what follows has a perfect essay structure. To be honest, it’s just going to be me spilling my thoughts and emotions on a virtual piece of paper, published in an online space which sometimes feels like clouds, puffed into the sky to stay there as long as we find them interesting.

For writing literary fiction, I like to have something simple, yet powerful that will make me energetic and full. So, what feels best in situations like those is yogurt baked pasta cake. It’s simple to make, yet very satisfying. You might wonder why I didn’t give literary fiction something more wholesome or sophisticated perhaps. That’s because I truly think that literary fiction should be familiar, but at the same time, a bit heavy to digest until you get used to it, just like life this genre is supposed to depict. It’s simple to make, but accomplishes a lot once it’s ready to be served. Continue reading “Food for Writing – Literary Fiction”
