Doors

Convocatorias/Events, Images, Poesía/Poetry

Thresholds to new beginnings,
to an end, to the unexpected.
Structures stating the limits.
Architectural moving compositions.
Square, round, top arched.
Red, blue, black…
Wooden, Metal, Crystal…
Hybrids like our hearts.
Our entrances, our exits.

Happy writings!

Virginia Woolf and the work of a writter

citas/quotes, Inpirador/Inspirational, mis letras

“Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works.”

“Cada secreto del alma de un escritor, cada experiencia de su vida, cada cualidad de su mente, está escrita en grande en su trabajo.”

Virginia Woolf

¿Tienes algún secreto que contar, una experiencia que debe ser leída? Toma tus armas y escribe. Liberate de tu carga y compartela.

Do you have a secret to tell, an experience that must be read? Take upon weapons and write. Relieve yourself of the burden and share it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

Images, Inpirador/Inspirational

Charles Dickens said “There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in the contrast.”

This is what I found on Wikipedia about Contrast in literature, by the way very interesting:

In literature, an author writes contrast when he or she describes the difference(s) between two or more entities.

Contrast is the antonym of simile. In poetic compositions, it is common for poets to set out an elaborate contrast or elaborate simile as the argument. In Renaissance poetry, and particularly in sonnets, the contrast was similarly used as a poetic argument. In such verse, the entire poem argues that two seemingly alike or identical items are, in fact, quite separate and paradoxically different. These may take the form of ‘my love is unlike all other women’ or ‘I am unlike her other loves.’

If you are interested in using, or practicing, contrast in your poetry, you might like to read this article “Contrast as a Method of Developing Poetry”. At the end of it you will find an exercise. Enjoy!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Indulge

Images, Inpirador/Inspirational, Los Sentidos, mis letras

In a life that reality and imagination collide constantly on the decisions between broom or pen, laundry or revision, housecleaning or story research, kids homework or plots… To indulge is a delightful gift, is to yield to the wishes of my inner desires as a mother, wife, friend, writer (in no particular order).

  When done, I yield, in an excessive degree, to the gratification of the pleasures of a double life: me and my writer self.

To yield to… To Indulge in the simplest moments in a life for which I’m thankful for.
