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?

What’s more important: #editing or #firstdrafts ?

Pippa Goldschmidt is based in Edinburgh. Her short stories, poetry and non-fiction have appeared in a wide variety of publications including New Writing Scotland, Gutter, the New York Times, and in anthologies such as ‘Best American Science and Nature Writing 2014’.
