When the pen thrives

We inhabit stories, real, our lives, and surreal, our fantasies and dreams. We live between the haves and the have-nots, between failure and achievements on the grind to success. We are on each side of to fail and to thrive.

Do we have a recipe for creativity? I stick to my ideas partly inspired from Ernest Hemingway – empty your mind of everything bleak, bland and boring and start with the truest sentence that you know. Open your mind to everything around, the people tell stories, the trees, the sun, everything is in the process of playing a tune. The trees do not care about your present turmoil, they care about the tune strummed by the wind. So do people.
“Tell the truth but make truth fascinating. You know, you can’t bore people into buying your product. You can only interest them in buying it.” – David Ogilvy

Do we have a recipe for Simple? Simple is always complicated, and maneuvering creativity and ideas is like drowning every day…“When a man is in doubt about this or that in his writing, it will often guide him if he asks himself how it will tell a hundred years hence. ”― Samuel Butler

Delivering real value. Cutting corners and not toiling over are to be exposed eventually. Failing to see all the angles and facets of the story and not following the humble and simple path of research, thought and delivery will take its toll, your story will lose the sparkle and appeal. Delivering real value rests also in the ability to see and solve the problem. Suffice it is to say that is best to solve it in the blink of an eye. Real value in business is what makes the difference between the so-called winners and losers.

Write down your ideas. We are in the middle of a whirlpool of information, images, static and moving words. Starting in the morning and sometimes never-ending. Keep writing. I often write down my dreams, too, especially the colorful and intriguing or the ones I am able to remember. Some of my invisible stories were first seen in a dream. As “Life is but a dream, within a dream.” – William Shakespeare

She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... On ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. On the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.

“Language is not like the sun,
heating and scorching
but like the moon
keeping secrets
and the arcane magic of the night
throwing stars
in the lilacs’ claws
till dawn.” -Iulia Halatz
