Writing is a journey into the unknown, only to discover that what you didn’t know was inside you all the time. But than Dostoyevsky writes this and you understand that he is right, and that you can live with this thought. • “There is something at the bottom of every new human thought, every thought of genius, or even every earnest thought that springs up in any brain, which can never be communicated to others, even if one were to write volumes about it and were explaining one's idea for thirty-five years; there's something left which cannot be induced to emerge from your brain, and remains with you forever; and with it you will die, without communicating to anyone perhaps the most important of your ideas.” • #writing #lakezurich #momentsofmine #visitzurich #reading

NSIBIDI - An Ancient Script The continent of Africa is home to a wide variety of languages and some of the oldest known written communication systems. The Nsibidi script developed by the Ekoi people of present day Nigeria and adapted by the Igb is chief among. Often recorded on ancient pottery, scholars agree that the ideographic writing was in use as early as 400 CE. Sculptures, clothing, calabashes, and the skin were decorated with this ancient writing and became used as a method of communication through gestures and writing between houses. Kept sacred and secret amongst government officials and elite members of society, these ancient symbols were used to record court proceedings and trials and demonstrate wealth and power. Slaves taken to the Caribbean islands still use a form of the writing today, known there as Anaforuana and veve symbols. With over 1,000 symbols, Nsibidi writing is elaborate and creative, serving as inspiration for artists and for Wakanda's language in the blockbuster "Black Panther." Ceremonial cloths with Nsibidi symbols like the Ukara cloth pictured here are still used among the Ekpe (Leopard) Society today.

Щороку в Протектораті має відбуватися жертвопринесення. Щороку відьмі треба віддати безвинне немовля, і містяни вірять, що за це кровожерлива лісова потвораподарує їм іще один рік хай безрадісного й оповитого серпанком смутку, але життя. Тож чи має ця карколомна жертва бодай якийсь сенс? Із цією книжкою читач порине в дивовижний світ, де відьма опікується покинутими малятами, де болотяний монстр складає вірші, а ув’язнена мати керує зграями паперових птахів. Тут живляться зоряним і місячним сяйвом, змагаються за чоботи-скороходи та вміють проникати крізь тканину світу. І, безумовно, добро перемагає, навіть якщо заради цього треба вщент зруйнувати усталений порядок.

Mirall trencat, publicada l'any 1974, és una novel·la de maduresa de Mercè Rodoreda que recull la vida de tres generacions de la família imaginària dels Valldaura.Es tracta d'una obra coral on un seguit de personatges lligats entre si pels llaços familiars i personals ens expliquen una ciutat, Barcelona, i una època, la d'abans de la guerra civil. Fragmentària i composta de múltiples veus, l'estil de la novel·la segueix el seu títol: un mirall esbocinat que reflecteix la realitat del moment i dels personatges a través de fragments de les vides que descriu. Aquest estil difereix considerablement d'altres obres de l'autora com La plaça del diamant o Aloma, on l'autora usa la primera persona en boca d'un personatge femení i per consegüent, desperta les lectures autobiogràfiques.

Will be reading tonight at 9pm. #reading #bookrelease #newbook #bsjk

When you’ve got a cold, but you’ve also got deadlines and a ‘can-do’ attitude 💪🏻 - - I think being ill gives me hysterical perspective. By which, I mean that I go from negative to positive in 8/10ths of a second. bUT RiGHt NoW I’M On A PoSItIviTy MoOd SwInG - no doubt slightly influenced by my cold and flu tablets. QOTD: what’s your favourite film or book when you’re not feeling your best physical self? I used to watch The Simpsons Move, Lady and the Tramp and Roman Holiday on repeat. Sometimes Pirates of the Carribean (Let’s just say my tastes are eclectic 😂🤷🏼‍♀️) bUT now I try to pick up whatever tantalising read is calling my name. My current read is @rachelcainewriter’s ‘Smoke and Iron’ 😍📖

📚❤️ A.a.a. cercasi case editrici serie (per genere di narrativa rosa) che non richiedano compensi per la pubblicazione. ~~~ Ormai è una guerra senza sosta, quella di noi giovani autori emergenti contro le CE che richiedono cifre assurde per editing e pubblicazione. L'ennesima dimostrazione, di quanto questi editori siano mercenari, l'ho avuta stamattina. Dopo avermi inviato una bella email elogiando il romanzo, hanno poi sganciato la bomba delle "necessità di editing oltre gli standard" del costo di "non meno di 1000 euro" 😅😅😅 La cosa di cui mi meraviglio, è che molti autori, purtroppo, inseguendo il loro sogno di pubblicare si facciano abbindolare come degli stupidi. Per questo voglio rivolgermi a voi, cari autori emergenti. Non cedete a queste proposte, credete di più in ciò che scrivete, non smerciate il vostro lavoro pur di vederlo online. I nostri libri, i vostri manoscritti, non sono oggetti da vendere al miglior offerente, sono frutto di passione, sudore ed emozioni. Per cui non arrendetevi ai "no", perseverate sempre e trovate qualcuno che creda davvero in voi, come io ho avuto la fortuna di incrociare il mio cammino con @natividigitali che non chiedono nulla, se non dedizione e ovviamente talento ❤️💪 ~~~ P.s. scusate lo sfogo 😂😂 #book #heartpaper #books #laspirantescrittrice #look #followme #like #instagram #instabook #instaphoto #autoriemergenti #natividigitaliedizioni #ce #caseeditrici #noap #gratis #foryou #lucky #goodluck #libri #believe #believeinyou #readers #reading #writers #aaacercasicaseeditrici #cercasi #mypassion #romance

"When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young." .
