If 8th March is Women’s day and March is women’s month, what about the other 364 days, and the other 11 months? Are they not women’s days and months? Who is an ideal woman? Are you celebrating woman’s day or month? What activity forms part of this celebration? Has Women’s day become a marketing gimmick in your part of the world? Have you wished someone Happy Women’s Day?
What inspires you? Do you ever get lost in old pictures, albums, books?
Do you look at pictures and wonder at the stories behind them? Can you link me to interesting pictures that I could use as writing prompts?
One of the questions I often get from those starting out on the fiction writing life is this: what if I piss off people with what I write? What if people recognise themselves in my characters?
Personally, I write what I don’t know a lot of the time, which keeps things interesting for me–so there’s little danger that some of my real-life friends, family, and acquaintances will recognize themselves in my writing.
What Have you sent out in the Universe today?
The Universe reflects back your intentions.
Instead of fighting with each other on social media, I urge everyone who is in a position to physically or financially help out those in need to do so, now more than ever.
One of the organizations my support goes to is Projectwhy in New Delhi, India, about which I’ve written here.
If you want to help a genuine organization trying to help children with a few dollars (as little as 5 dollars or Euros would help), where each cent of your money would go to the kids themselves, donate here. I’ve supported them for years, and this place is run by a woman with a large heart, exactly the kind who can protect us from guns with flowers.
Or, find another place, people, or cause to add your positive energy to. Do something for a person or animal or plant without concern for your own material benefit. We cannot fight darkness, we need to light a candle in order to make it melt away.
