June 1st, 2019- Welcome June!

Welcome, June,

you find me at the café of my hometown, in the South of France where I focus on my writing. And I also mail job applications. I have come to the conclusion that my publishing pace needs to get faster and my focus deeper.

How about the everyday issues that appear and try to get my attention?

Hmm, probably fix one hour a day to deal with them.

May 17, 2019- Update from my hometown and how to upgrade myself

Hello May,

yes, I have promised myself to write daily here, and I have almost succeeded, in the sense I have been using more traditional methods: paper and pen.

So, what is going on for me? I am at the nearest café, where I try to concentrate despite the music and talking. Writing from my parent’s place is tricky because I get interrupted by real life.

I feel I need energy and a sense of orientation.

Tonight I am to go to a local theatre with fellow artists, and before that, I need to focus.

Next to me, two retired people reading their newspapers.

Another possibility to join a library but I am not sure if it is worth driving or taking public transport for this.

I have bought a book on specific actions to take in my field, and then I contacted a potential mentor. In the meanwhile, my time is a scarce resource, I need to use in the best possible way 🙂

So, how do I use this time to take myself to the next level of the game?

How about romance?

Is it in the stars these days?

How do I upgrade myself?

March 10, 2019- Back to my parents’ home: an update of my adventures

Hello March,

I am back at the beginning, in my parents’ home in the South of France: a perfect time for an update. Where to and whither?

I have succeeded certain projects, failed others and I am here again, without stability and some debts.

Is there something to learn from the experience?

Well, for sure, that I can be a source of “wrongdoing” because of miscalculation even if it wasn’t my intention.

What is the most essential thing at this moment?

How would I like to live every day?

Well, with challenges and new things to learn;

Looking up to people who can advise and help me.

And helping others with what I have learnt.

To begin with, it is important to produce every day.

And then do anything else 🙂

March 23, 2016- the day after my book launch!

And Yes, the presentation of my first book took place in my village of the South of France, at the local bookstore!

It has been a big local hit: 55 books were sold on the spot!

Ok, half of them went to aunts and uncles, former boyfriend of the time I was 8 year’s old; others to former neighbours who were curious to see if they would learn something about my personal life all these years far from the cafe and the village church. After all, I am a village celebrity 🙂

And yes, it is practically a self published book because if I sell the 200 books we have edited I will end up with a profit of 200 euros.

But it meant a lot to publish in my mother tongue first and to do it there where my life started.  Even if at my little village -we call it small town- there are also those who forced me to get out and seek adventure in the wide world.

Now I feel kind of exhausted at my village café. It feels like, whaou, there were about 100 people there who seemed to be interested in whatever I have produced. Even if I have my blog-friends who are there with their inspiring comments, it is great to have humans with flesh and blood being present.

The next step is to see if they enjoy it as much as I did writing it!

And of course, to translate it!
