April 12, 2019- Female characters in literature- French writers

Hello April,

I started blogging five years ago, and I was writing every day for at least three months. It has been a transformative experience. My pace, fast or slow, a few days a month or every few days, has changed, but I am present overall.

And here I am now, where to?

Explore, meet, learn, discover, love, share.

Read.

I decided to rediscover some French female authors, like Mme de Lafayette. I have been reading La Princesse de Montpensier, and I am thinking of getting back to the Princesse des Clèves also. Let’s see how female characters have been formed in these classic novels and films for inspiration :

June 11 and 12, 2016: walking at the park and Blogger’s Bash

Hi June,

yes, I have an internet connexion problem because I spent all my gigabytes watching this film with dogs in order to relax. The result is I don’t have any connexion left to blog or other things. And the computer I use right now is not private so I might have to go fast.

In any case, if you need an update of Blogger’s Bash, I attended on Saturday, here is the link to hear the news directly from Sacha, the talented organizer: https://sachablack.co.uk/annual-bloggers-bash/

Since I was under cover, no photo or name of mine will appear.

I enjoyed meeting very easy-going and cool co-bloggers, not to mention the speech given by the master-mind Luca, of WordPress, with tips about blogging. Telegram and Snapchat was one of them. But there were a lot more.

Now, as to the rest of the weekend, I had to go wireless, and instead I fed the ducks at the park. No need for connexion, just a connexion with Nature

June 8 and 9, 2016: looking forward to the Blogger’s Bash in London

Hello June,

so there is this blogger meeting, the Blogger’s Bash I intend to attend for the first time, and meet people who share the same passion: writing and publishing something on line on a regular basis!

In the meanwhile, I have been dealing with practical questions: how to keep my environment organized, satisfy my flatmate who thinks I don’t clean the surfaces in the Kitchen every time I finish cooking -she might have a point- with creative writing, organizing my next artistic event and also looking for funding opportunities for another round in the UK.

Hmmm… and last but not least, I need to walk more than 15.000 steps a day so that our team wins the trophee at the working platform I am attached to.

So, where is the time for romance? Passion? Exhuberation? Soul searching?

To be honest, I start from soul-searching and being open to inspiration.

This is why I can forget spraying Dettol on the kitchen or to put my clothes in order.

This is also the reason why I start my working day after lunch.

And why I finish so late!

Do I want to change that?

I like writing late, the feeling that I am the only person around.

There is something rebellious about it, I am not sure I can find early in the morning.

What do you think?

Bloggers Bash – The Ultimate FAQ

I am so happy my blogger-friend Erika mentioned it, because I was mistaken about the dates: so I communicate the information on Bloggers Bash for other bloggers who might be interested!

We have been asked a number of questions on the Bash, most of which are similar to each other. So we thought we would round them all up and pop them in a post all together. If you have any more que…

February 17- Blog writing as a compensation or a work of art :-)

Hello there February,

would you say that blog-writing is a form of compensation? For something missing? This is what a friend just told me. And I would easily agree with that. It is here to fill in a void. A creative void.

A need to express and communicate, to give form to feelings, ideas, moments. Much more ephemeral than other forms of art. Oops, could it be a form of art? Is our everyday expression taking us to the next level, making out of us artists?

To miss something, is the essence and definition of desire. And creating without desire is not possible.

So let’s compensate some of our desires right here. In the blog-sphere

And the rest of them, out there 🙂

In the concrete, material and face to face world.

February 12: Over 1000 followers: thank you so much dear friends!

Dear February,

my blog has over 1000 followers! Isn’t this a reason for a celebration?! It all started on April 2014. Thank you dear friends, passers-by, curious, or forgetful to disengage fellow blogers! And thank you WordPress and all the people who work on this platform that make it possible to have a tangible sign of progress with our blogs!!!

Ok, now, don’t tell me, February, I understand there aren’t 1000 people getting up in the morning with the first thought: what has April written today? I want to know, I am dying to read her post! And so much the better they have other important things in their life! Yes, they could have found something interesting and then forgotten to take another look for several months. I just try not to get the “grosse tête”, meaning keeping my foot on the ground.

But still, I thank you all, those who took a look and continued your way, those who smiled because you read something, those who recognized something from yourself.

Especially, and wholeheartedly, I thank those who with your comments, have become friends and made me feel part of a wonderful community!

Thank you for providing a mirror that is helping me reflect on life. Blogging has been to me like the message in a bottle, that I release, in a sea of questions and wishes. Some people open it and give me a feedback!

So, celebration day: I promise to wear something nice, fix my hair and throw a party.

A real, or a virtual one 🙂

Hello October,

September 30- Monthly Update

And the update of September, where follow my heart’s desire and insisting on my writing becomes important. Specific goals still are, but they have become the background 🙂

april4june6: A journal of self-tranformation

Dear September,

instead of goodby, I would like to summarize some important thoughts you have inspired to me!

a. I am living on a beautiful planet, member of a galaxy, that belongs to the universe

a. I need to follow my heart’s desire in order to be on the right orbit: writing to begin with and creating dreams that can become reality for me and others

c. I need the right environment to flourish; find the people for me, the context, the love, … in a way that they make me grow; those who don’t can simply fade away, they are not part of my story

d. I am a Tiger -among other things- capable to roar, but I also like to play and get some rest as a big cat.

Thank you September,

à bientôt 😉

June 30- Transformation Journal Update

The first goal of this blog was to daily post for three months: April to June, which I did 🙂 Succeeding out of the blue the first step of a project selection gave me in July all I needed to participate to a major artistic event in Paris and organize a small beautiful artistic happening at the South of France. How about my finances? Eh… no they have not become better… And love? Well, I have fallen in love, and also lived a short relationship, so there was some action. Still, these experiences felt like rehearsals in a way 🙂

april4june6: A journal of self-tranformation

Hello dear June and farewell,

I have promised to write for three months, April to June. Here is my starting point, at the beginning of April:

After having been insulted by a wannabe boss, I decided to change myself in order to get a real job and true love.

 April to June.

 In Paris where I actually live the last years”

A post a day. I succeeded to fulfill the promise to myself, even if, sometimes, I was one or two days late in finishing my posts.

Blogging, has been in itself a fulfilling experience. I shared feelings and instants of my everyday life. I took some distance from them and from myself.

Is there a result after three months soul-searching?

Yes. There is a tangible result, a miracle, I wrote about on June 27: I passed the first step of a selection for the funding of my project…
