What Is Your Mission And Purpose In Life?

I read on Instagram that discovering your life’s goal and purpose is essential before taking any action or hoping to achieve any kind of success.

What makes you get up in the morning?

About me
My true purpose and mission in life: to write very well. To make people stumble on my words and never stop coming back.
I love writing, and I am willing to work harder.
As I mentioned in a previous article: writing is a demanding task that requires skill and dedication. It encourages deep and thorough introspection. It demands a significant amount of determination and fortitude. It requires a solid grasp of the structure. A great deal of reading, tedious research, and summarizing are required. Not to mention battling the writer’s block…

To travel. To breathe different air. Didn’t you notice? In some oniric landscapes, the air is tangible and it has taste…
Working hard and being committed may lead to a more fulfilling existence, as I’ve come to acknowledge.

To work hard, and I will, so that my life is filled with unforgettable experiences and so that I may see the world through the eyes of others and learn about their ways of living.

What is the difference between content writing, blog writing and copywriting?

What is the difference between content writing, blog writing and copywriting?

Content writing, blog writing, and copywriting each serve unique purposes and have specific goals. Here’s a brief overview of the differences between them:

Content Writing

The primary purpose of content writing is to provide valuable information to the audience.
It aims to educate, inform, or entertain the readers. The goal is to create content that is useful and engaging.
Examples: Articles, guides, tutorials, whitepapers, and any other form of content that focuses on delivering information.

Blog Writing

Blog writing shares similarities with content writing but is specifically associated with online journals or blogs.
The goal is to engage the audience through regular, informal updates, often reflecting the writer’s personality or perspective.
Examples: Personal blogs, corporate blogs, and any regularly updated online platform featuring articles, commentary, or personal reflections.

Copywriting

Copywriting is focused on persuading the audience to take a specific action, such as making a purchase, signing up for a newsletter, or clicking a link.
The primary goal is conversion. It’s about creating compelling and persuasive content that drives the reader to act.
Examples: Advertisements, product descriptions, sales pages, email campaigns, and any content designed to sell or promote a product or service.

In a nutshell, content writing covers a variety of educational subjects, while blog writing adds a personal touch and keeps readers informed. On the other hand, copywriting is expertly crafted to persuade the audience to take specific actions. Understanding the distinctions between these categories allows authors to tailor their material to achieve specific goals, even though there may be some overlap between them.

How much would you pay to go to the moon?

How much would you pay to go to the moon?

I have written once
We are the masters
of two small islands:
One of carton trees
and hollowed plastic flowers
and One
where the moon lives.
Trapeze artist of the Moon

Humanity has long been captivated by the concept of journeying to the Moon. From the early days of the space race to today’s conversations about commercial space flight, the Moon has remained an enticing destination. But how much are you prepared to spend for a trip to the Moon? This subject is becoming more significant than ever as technology progresses and the space travel business expands.

Key takeaways
The distance between the Moon and Earth is approximately 238,855 miles. The price of a lunar excursion is influenced by the duration of the journey and the amount of energy needed for the trip.
Spacecraft for lunar missions must be equipped with life support systems, food, and other necessary supplies for the journey. The price of these accommodations can be quite high.

How do you tackle writer’s block?

Writer’s block is the condition of being unable to create a piece of written work because something in your mind prevents you from doing it.

The term was coined in 1947 by Dr Edmund Bergler, a famous Austrian psychiatrist living in New York City.

Teaching comes naturally to me because I view it as a real-time storytelling experience between myself and my students. I do not teach grammar in a dull manner; instead, I incorporate storytelling into my teaching approach.

I believe that writing is the true form of storytelling, and I have seldom experienced writer’s block. I struggle the most with maintaining consistency in my writing because sometimes my texts come across as frail when I am feeling very tired. I do not recognize my voice in them.

At times, I experience a lack of fresh ideas since I strive to write original content consistently. Sometimes the images I intend to convey through my stories appear to be blurry.

The medicine for that is to stop writing and start reading. I read everything I could find in my library. Anyhow, I have a lot of books on my must-read list. And I believe in Taleb’s antilibrary.

“Indeed, the more you know, the larger the rows of unread books. Let us call this collection of unread books an antilibrary.” – The Black Swan, Nassim Taleb

After a few days, my writing voice is back. The most inspirational writers for me are: John Fowles, Somerset Maugham, Jack London.
If I were to pursue a career as a novelist, my aspiration would be to write at least half as well as the aforementioned writers.

What about you? How do you beat writer’s block?
What’s your secret to unlocking the creative floodgates when the words just won’t flow?

World Book and Copyright Day!

“Men had always been the reciters of poetry in the desert.”

For World Book Day I nominate the book that made me travel. The words were so powerful that made me live in the truth of its images, walk the paths of love, anger and anguish of the telltale hearts roaming a world without maps… And I felt the desert, dissipating in my veins, the blood throbbed of life and traveling sand.

“The desert could not be claimed or owned–it was a piece of cloth carried by winds, never held down by stones, and given a hundred shifting names… Its caravans, those strange rambling feasts and cultures, left nothing behind, not an ember. All of us, even those with European homes and children in the distance, wished to remove the clothing of our countries. It was a place of faith. We disappeared into landscape.”
– Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient

13 Lessons From my Father

My father was an amazing person. I love him deeply, and I miss him dearly.

My father was an engineer, and many people reported to him. He was tough and admitted no errors. He was feared and, most of all, respected. His subordinates immediately picked up that he was first tough on himself. Nevertheless, he had an amazing sense of humour, making everybody laugh. He was charming and wise, having the right words for all circumstances and situations. I cannot remember him losing his temper. Maybe once, when I fell off my rookie skates and broke my arm, which ended my career as a rookie skater. My father took them away, saying that if I wasn’t smart enough to skate, I didn’t deserve to have them.

He was able to teach lessons without using many words.

He was always making jokes about my appearance, usually about my big eyes (family trait inherited from him); “Your eyes are so big that they slide down your cheeks” or that “unlike Darwin said in The Origins of Species, my next of kin were the lemurs and not the apes.” At that time I was angry, but later I realised that he was right and we should laugh at our flaws and also turn them into strengths and advantages.

His lessons are as follows:

1. If you don’t work hard, your luck will dwindle. And the better you work and prepare, the luckier you become.

2. Always learn from your mistakes.

3. Always play fair and admit your mistakes. There is nothing to be gained by not admitting failure or defeat, you should acknowledge your shortcomings and become better.

4. Always look your best, be neatly attired and pleasant, and your demeanour should match your words.

5. Have fun and don’t take yourself too seriously. I sometimes let myself be a fool, but a fool in the right places.

6. Success comes with a lot of work and very good insight. Hard work is not enough; you need information and a good bird’s-eye view of things.

7. Do not ponder too much over your flaws. I do my best, speak my best, and look my best. If this doesn’t do it, move on.

8. Disorganised people lose half their lives looking for lost things. This is a good one. Now I can find everything with my eyes closed. I am (or have become) very organised.

9. Always have goals and objectives. Small and big. People without goals live plain and boring lives, lose time, and consequently the time their lives are made of.

10. Time is of the essence. Do not squander time. When you see that you are using up your time in activities with no return, stop.

11. Before making a decision, think, but not too much. Use the information you have got but also your common sense.

12. Always have a healthy routine. I try to get enough sleep and go to bed early. I eat properly, and I have a fitness routine. In the evening, I sum up the day and consider if I have done something good (or bad) and if I have created value for others and myself.

13. Always stand your ground and stick to your good ideas. Especially in business. Believe in your work and be prepared to demonstrate your product as often as needed.

When I have a tricky issue on my plate, I ask myself, “What would my father do?”

He was a very talented person. He could draw and paint with both hands; his jokes were witty; and his stories were enthralling. He was the heart and soul of every gathering, and he was passionate about everything.

La mulți ani, România!

Today is Romania’s National Day!

Romania is my country and the sweet hills covered in vineyards are my home place.

I have yet to find more beauty in the world as to measure the balmy vineyards in the shade of moonlit evenings.

Here, in Romania, Beauty follows you everywhere. When you think you’ve lost it, it’s there breathing magic on your neck, tugging at your sleeve with gorgeous sunsets, misty mountains, bluish lakes, Shire-like emerald hills, fortresses that once kept invaders at bay…
