What’s the most powerful #lesson you’ve learned in your #life ?

While blogging, one of my joys has been making friends. Over the years and despite the miles, someone on the other side of the world can become a real friend, in the truest sense of the term. Once such friend is Guilie Castillo-Oriard, talented author, a dog-rescuer with a big heart, and an awesome friend. She’s recently released her book “The Miracle of Small Things” and if you haven’t read it, I urge you to get yourself a copy, pronto: there’s something for different kinds of reader: for the lover of short stories, of narratives, of language. It is also a love letter to Curaçao.

Are you a lover of short stories? What’s the latest anthology you’ve read?

Dear Writer, How did You start your writing journey?

Today, I’m very excited to welcome on this blog Suchen Christine Lim, one of Singapore’s best known authors and also a kind, cheerful personality when it comes to teaching creative writing. In October this year Suchen’s latest novel, The River’s Song was launched in Singapore (click here to watch Suchen read dramatic excerpts at the launch) and as part of the ongoing writer’s guest post series in this blog, she talks us today about the beginning of her writing journey.

Teaser Tuesday: A Stephen King #Book

When I started the book I hadn’t read either the blurb or the review, picking it up from the bedside and just reading the first page. I do that with books on e-readers. So I had no idea this was an alternative history. Now that I’ve started it, Mr. King has persuaded me to keep reading the sort of book I would normally never start on. let’s see where this journey takes me.
