Develop your “Body of work, and your cohort”

I teach a Creative (business) Writing course online, so, when I started, my first step was to build a website and adorn it with all the details with a view to my courses. Nevertheless, I first started writing on my blog in 2014, which prompted me to start teaching about it, along with my other business, finance and legal courses.

But building up a website, optimizing it, networking, writing blog posts every day take a lot of time and tremendous amounts of work, also because search engine optimization is a life style for a website, as one can never say, “I have just finished optimizing your website, my work is done”.

Other tips (borrowed from the great Seth Godin) are concerned with developing your reputation, your Body of work, and your cohort.

I do hope these have been helpful for you, and I wish you an enduring and wonderful career in teaching.

Write

“You must write every single day of your life… You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads… may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”
Ray Bradbury

Midspring

Yesterday I encountered the most beautiful magnolia. It looked unreal.

I once wrote that, when looking at the magnolia flowers, I understand why in fairytales, the princess asks for a twig with flowers… in midwinter.
Now, in midspring, they are surely flawless.

In Our Woods, Sometimes a Rare Music

Every spring
I hear the thrush singing
in the glowing woods
he is only passing through.
His voice is deep,
then he lifts it until it seems
to fall from the sky.
I am thrilled.
I am grateful.

Then, by the end of morning,
he’s gone, nothing but silence
out of the tree
where he rested for a night.
And this I find acceptable.
Not enough is a poor life.
But too much is, well, too much.
Imagine Verdi or Mahler
every day, all day.
It would exhaust anyone.”
― Mary Oliver, A Thousand Mornings

Stanley Spencer

A more poetical “Less is more”. The poetry of music is undermined by its continuity…
The song of the thrush is perfect, mysterious, and atoning for all the sadness and grimness of winter…
In my culture there is an old saying “miracles last for two days”. Banality cuts deep also into the birds’ song not just into a fabrication of people that is classical music.
Spring is the Renaissance age of the entire year when the marvels of the new earth dictates the rhythm of life.

Happy International Women’s day!

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.

On this day, I am happy and grateful for the toil and endeavours of the many women along history, without the efforts of whom I could not have been what I have become: a strong woman with choices. I was able to choose to study, to have a career, to write my bold words, to vote and to be voted for.

A merry day for all the women of this world!

I illustrate with a picture of one of my favourite artists: Remedios Varo

A beautiful Spring!

When you catch a dream, you run after another in continuation of the first.
For you, Spring has built so much Love as to fill the sky with blue and the gardens with happy green.

I bid you to live the new days to the full and catch all your dreams in the most beautiful spring of your life!

Foreign Country

He couldn’t be captured in a phrase
Or one hundred…

He was like no one,

He was like a foreign country
That you travelled through
Eerie landscapes and glistening lakes
Towards horizons
Camouflaged in mists
Precluding
Happiness
once felt
And dreamed about.

He was like a giant umbrella
In bright colors
Protective of winds and shadows
Bandaging unseen wounds
In tenderness and
Love.

Reposting an old poem written in 2015

‘Ring Out, Wild Bells’

“Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light;
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.”
Alfred Lord Tennyson,- ‘Ring Out, Wild Bells’.

If I …

“If I had asked people what they wanted they would have said faster horses.” -Henry Ford.

If I had asked my students what they wanted they would have said an English-Romanian translation course.

Not having asked and keeping my head and thoughts firmly outside the box, I ask you to speak English.

I ask you to think creatively and transform your thoughts in a story …

Don’t worry about your mistakes.

As long as you don’t take them anywhere with you or tuck them in every chilly evening … you will be fine…

At my courses I give you the user manual for transforming your thoughts in a simple English story.
