Blank Pages, Titles, Writing And Grammar

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 16, 2014 in Personal |

I read recently on Twitter an entry by a female novelist about how she begins writing, how she overcomes the fear of a blank page. She says that, rather than planning how to start, she simply sits down and writes whatever comes into her mind for the first ten minutes. This removes the fearsome blank […]

Tweeps, Your Name Is Retard

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 9, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

I didn’t watch the football last night, no matter how enthralling the Germany – Brazil match may have been, television still doesn’t interest me all that much. I did, however, manage to keep up on what was happening, not just through the number of cars which drove through town as the game finished, blaring their […]

It May Seem Obvious, But…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 8, 2014 in Internet |

I came across two interesting Tweets in the last few days which made me wonder whether some professionals really consider what they are doing before they send out either Tweets or articles for general consumption. They both strike me as being examples of seeing without really understanding, sending before re-reading and thinking. Take this first […]

A Complicated Language

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 6, 2014 in Internet |

There’s nothing like learning a language to broaden your horizons, not just from a traveling point of view but also because with a second language – or third for some – it is possible to access a wealth of other things not usually available. For me the second language is clearly German, which makes a […]

Your Evening On The Couch

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 4, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Ever wondered what there is to watch on the television without having to zap through all the channels in order to find just the right program? Ever wished there was an easy way to find just the right film or series to arouse your interests and keep you glued to the couch with a bucket […]

Thoughts On The World Cup

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 22, 2014 in Internet |

I haven’t been watching the World Cup in Brazil. Football, soccer, whatever you care to call it, simply doesn’t interest me, and I’m not even going to pretend to be interested to get close to someone. There are enough other things in the world which hold my interest, and the idea of a country spending […]

Duckface: Uses For A….

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 22, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Having written a few words about selfies – yet again – a few days ago, I’m returning to another self-portrait theme which keeps on rearing its (ugly) head: the Duckface. This time, however, I’m not going to ruin your day with instances of excessive cosmetic surgery gone wrong or the horrors of bathroom and toilet […]

Death Of The Selfie

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 20, 2014 in Internet |

It has been hailed as the end of the selfie: the Duke of York took a photograph of himself and guests during a function and posted it to Twitter, apparently a first for the English royal family. And, of course, there was an almost instant uptake on the photograph with many media sites snapping their […]

Twitter: The Double Dog Dare

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 16, 2014 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

If thirty people re-post this I will do something absolutely amazing or, better yet, amusing and silly. Has anyone not seen this or a similar line on Twitter or Facebook? If you haven’t then you’ve probably got a very stable, upright set of friends or followers. Although, sometimes, there are ‘if you’ messages for something […]

So I Thought: Friday The 13th

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 13, 2014 in Internet |

There have to be a few good tales about things which happened today, especially since this is supposed to be a day of bad luck. That’s what I thought. Guess I was wrong. In fact, going through all the meaningless status updates on Twitter, I found next to nothing of interest. No one got run […]
