We have met Driscoll Lake inhabitants with … Continue reading Roadshow at Story Empire
A few days ago I saw this post on positivewriter.com: 40 reasons why do you write. Beside listing the author's 40 reasons, the post asks writers to take the challenge, write 40 reasons and post on your blog. How could I resist? At first I thought finding 40 would prove difficult, but in the end once … Continue reading 40 reasons why do I write #challenge
Where does the idea for a story come from? To tell you the truth, as a reader, I never really think about it. When a good story grabs my attention, it's unusual for me to linger about its genesis. As a writer though I'm always well aware of what inspire my stories and I often … Continue reading Short movies and illusions #inspiration
Lately I've been thinking a lot about my first novel, Secrets of a Handbag, and what I want to do with it. I'm halfway through what I hope it's the final rewriting of the Italian version, and it's only natural to start considering what kind of road I'm going to take. First question: do I … Continue reading Does self publishing sound like taking the easy road?
Wanting to be a writer is clearly not enough to become one. And inspiration alone will lead you to nowhere. Being a writer requires a lot of hard work, commitment and sacrifice. It’s difficult, but not impossible. If you made choices that had nothing to do with writing in your life, it’s even more difficult. … Continue reading Facing the truth
Let’s face it, even if I can read and enjoy a lot of different genres from non-fiction to romance, I usually go for fantasy, science fiction, thrillers and detective stories.

A beautiful … Continue reading Finding Eliza by Stephanie Pitcher Fishman #whatImreading

Tell me... ...would you trust a chef who doesn’t eat? Or a singer who doesn’t listen to music? I don’t think so. Then why should you trust a writer who doesn’t read? A few days ago I was thinking about this and I realised that lately I’ve been reading far less than I used to. I … Continue reading Only trust writers who reads a lot #whatImreading
Hallo readers! How are you? I’ve been quite silent lately, because it has been a very hectic period and my free time has been devoted mainly to my fiction writing. Talking about fiction writing... today is a big day because Camp NaNoWriMo begins! What’s that? Camp NaNoWriMo is a rib of NaNoWriMo, which stands for National Novel … Continue reading Let’s do it again!
After weeks of silence, I pick up pen and paper (or better screen and keyboard) to tell you about a brand new book. If you are a writer you would love this book, if you aren’t you’ll want to become one.. I had the honor of being a beta-reader and I read an ARC copy … Continue reading Groovy Cool Writing Techniques has been released today!
Why do you read so many novels? Do they have any meaning? Have you ever heard this kind of questions? I had. Someone also told me that listening to music is a waste of time and more than one had the nerve to ask me “Why do you write stories? They are just that… stories, … Continue reading Why do you write stupid stories?
Once upon a time, when I was young and foolish, I wanted to be a writer but did nothing to become one. I wanted to write but I didn’t take the time to put the words on paper.
