Down the rabbit hole we go,

Far beneath the earth’s surface,

Where The Dead wait for their savior,

Arms extended,

Reaching for us,

Mouths held open in silent cries

As we fall farther,


Past the point of no return.

7 Ways to actually write a book during NaNoWriMo

It Seemed Like A Good Idea At Three Am

sweater weather

Hello writer friends. Grab your laptops and coffee and get ready to prepare for the toughest month of your writing career. You guessed it folks, NaNoWriMo. For those of you that don’t know, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month.

So in honor of this month’s writing challenge, I am going to share with 7 ways to actually succeed in NaNoWriMo this month.

1. Tell yourself you can do it.

It won’t do you much good if you don’t believe in yourself. If writing a book is something you’ve always wanted to do, then now is your chance. The book isn’t going to write itself.

2. Get a new coffee maker.

Ok, this one is optional, but still. Coffee is a writer’s fuel right?

3. Get inspiration.

Look up things on pinterest. Create a board for your book. Look up other author’s NaNoWriMo success stories. Do whatever you think will help…

The Greatest Success in the World

Bryce Dudzinski

IMG_1592The Greatest Success in the World by Og Mandino.

This book has been revered and recommended for decades, so I decided this spring break to pluck it off my ever-growing, mental book shelf of “books I should get around to reading”. Easily, worth the quick read.

The book starts sharing a story of a man named Zacchaeus, who has been dealt a difficult hand in life, in many regards. He is an orphan. He is significantly shorter than the average height. He is not attractive, has a misshapen body, and no education. Nevertheless, Zacchaeus manages to rise above these shortcomings and becomes the wealthiest man of Jericho. 

The book continues sharing dialogue and stories of Zacchaues’ unparalleled generosity with his wealth, his wisdom in various situations, and the honor he has throughout the world. Clearly, this is a man of greatness. 

Zacchaeus shares at the end of the short book the…

I Will Act Now by Og Mandino



One sunday morning, after shooting some hoops at the IDS multi-purpose hall, I sat on a wooden bleacher to take a break. While looking down on the ground, I noticed a piece of trash. I picked up this paper and curiously unfolded it to see its content.

As I read the piece, I thought to myself, “wow, this is very good writing. Who could have composed it?” Images then flashed back on my mind wondering who among the students could have came up with such  an inspiring composition. Then I saw the name: Og Mandino

I googled the guy and I was suprised. He was actually famous – rather a well known American author of self-help and motivation books. This just caught my full attention as thoughts of Law of Attraction filled my head. I researched the internet as I was eager to know his biography. I found a summary…

“I am bigger than anything that can happen to me. All these things, sorrow, misfortune, and suffering, are outside my door. I am in the house and I have the key.”

– Charles Fletcher Lummis

CHOIces“Man is made or unmade by himself. By the right choice he ascends. As a being of power, intelligence, and love, and the lord of his own thoughts, he holds the key to every situation…” – James Allen (author of the classic ‘As a Man Thinketh’)




“Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.”
