It Seems Like An Age Ago

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 11, 2014 in Personal |

There are times when I don’t recognize my own writing. I don’t mean my handwriting, although that can be hard enough at times, but those things I wrote here, or as a short story, several years ago. Sometimes my writing style, the words I use, the ideas behind a blog post, behind a story or […]

As The Weekend Approaches

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 9, 2014 in Personal |

As the weekend fast approaches I am more than aware that I have been neglecting certain things, and that I want – as well as need – to get back into them once more. The break in Baltimore meant that I had to leave many things on my desk, just waiting for my return, no […]

Just So Tired

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 6, 2014 in Personal |

It’s amazing what a change in time zones can do to you. You know that I’ve been back in Germany for most of the weekend now, and I thought I’d have caught up with the time difference, the disruption to sleep patterns, by now, but it isn’t so. It was much easier traveling over to […]

The Joy Of Blogging

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 4, 2014 in Internet |

I read something very strange this evening which came as a great surprise to me. Not quite the chin-down-on-chest surprise, more of a mind-blowing, well-I-never surprise. Someone wrote this sentence on their blog and it threw me completely: I thought blogging every day would be a burden, but it actually became a great source of […]

Is There A Point To Negative Reviews?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 4, 2014 in Publishing |

A major interest for all writers, quite aside from having their work accepted by a publisher and then selling, is the reaction it receives from the marketplace, from ordinary readers. With the advances in technology, it is now possible for absolutely everyone to review a work, to add their comment on one website or another, […]

Tim Parks’ References, Please: A Reply

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 16, 2014 in Publishing |

The Internet is good for many things, but it should never be considered an adequate substitute for research, for reading and for learning from – where possible – original sources. It is a mass, if not a mess, of thoughts, learning, quotation and misquotation, false paths and short-cuts used by students all over the world […]

A New Masonic Title Due

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 14, 2014 in Publishing |

It’s a wonderful feeling, as a publisher, when a new manuscript comes in and is ready for publication, almost – I imagine – as good as the feeling when your own book hits the stands and you can hold it in your hands and show it off to all your friends. Today we completed the […]

Publishing: Another Step Forwards

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 12, 2014 in Publishing |

Today is another good day, as far as my small publishing business is concerned. For many, perhaps, not a massive day, not one to write about in future history books, but a good step in the right direction nonetheless. Yesterday I completed the re-writing of my publishing website from the very basics of web design […]

So, You’ve Written Your Book…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 8, 2014 in Publishing |

Yesterday I wrote about how I set myself targets and then attempt to meet them, how my targets are perhaps less than would be possible to attain and the reasons why I set a lower target. Having finished writing that post, my thoughts turned to other areas where we set targets, where we have something […]

Milestones: Rebuilding An Internet Presence

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 7, 2014 in Publishing |

Sometimes when you set yourself a target you are almost certainly condemning yourself to failure. We tend to over-estimate our proficiency, our abilities, even our willingness to do certain things, no matter how attractive or profitable they may be, and find ourselves caught in a quagmire of inability, lack of time, lack of confidence. Once […]
