Don’t Bite The Hand That Reviews

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 19, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

I had an interesting experience yesterday on Google Plus, one which surprised me to a certain extent simply because, well, you don’t expect such things there. On Facebook and Twitter perhaps, but not on Google Plus. I was insulted by someone, and by insulted I mean in a callous and bitter manner with a few […]

Review: Straight White Male

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 18, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

The life of a bestselling author is an easy one: rest on your laurels cashing in on the success of your last work and, occasionally, write something new. The real life of a bestselling author is something completely different: not so much resting as searching for a new work which will hold that level of […]

Finding Flash Inspiration

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 7, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Where do you get your inspiration from when writing? A fairly innocuous question, but one which every single writer is going to be faced with at some time, or which they are going to ask themselves. Where do all these ideas come from? Looking for ideas for short stories, I came across a few things […]

Moving From Small To Big

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

For those of you who have been keeping up with the (sparse) news on my publishing endeavors, here is a small update on plans and actions because the thing about having a company is that you need to stay on top of things, you need to be capable of evolving. Stagnation is the death of […]

Review: Essay Oder Stirb

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 2, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

It is amazing how few people sit down and think. I mean really think, consider the big and the small things in life and not just what is happening to them, why, and why life is so unfair, but moving events and powers of our modern world. People in general no longer seem to look […]

If I Can Criticize Others

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 30, 2014 in Publishing |

Time, I think, to do a little self promotion. The thing is, I write reviews. I take the works of other people and criticize them, rip their writing or editing or spelling to pieces. Sometimes the books I receive to review are good, sometimes I am incapable of reading through the whole thing. As a […]

Blogging: Evolution Is The Way Forwards

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 19, 2014 in Internet |

It’s fair to say that after more than four years this blog has gone beyond the creation stage. It has a firm and relatively stable place on the Internet, frequent and regular visitors and a relatively good ranking against other, similar sites. With creation completed, it is once again time to look at how it […]

Taking Note Of The Title

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 17, 2014 in Publishing |

Yesterday I wrote about the various means by which a writer can begin their work: by using a provided opening paragraph; by simply writing until the fear of a blank page is gone; by using notes and ideas planned long in advance. Despite my post title, I didn’t write anything about using Titles or Grammar, […]

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 […]

Publishing: The Worst Review Advice

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

You wouldn’t believe how much stress there is involved in just reviewing a book. Every single reviewer knows how much work has been put into the volume they have in their hands; how much an author has invested; how proud they are of their creation. The reviewer, however, also has their work to do, and […]
