{Life List}: A Non-Fiction Workshop

Let me start it with a nice quote on pinterest.

learn

 

I love learning and get very excited when ever I had an opportunity to learn something new -especially for free. For me, it doesn’t matter if at the end I didn’t like it. Its the willingness to learn and the effort to enjoy the process that matters.

Last Saturday, I joined a short workshop on non-fiction writing. A friend of mine informed me about the workshop and I just signed up. No hesitation at all. I even forgot that I had it on my life list. Turned out that I wrote about Joining a writing course there. Its amazing how universe brought me to fill my forgotten list. I just feel the need of going out and having new experience.

So.. the workshop was held in Millenia Book Store -never been there before-, a not so big book store (comparing to Gramedia) but somehow I like the air of the store itself. The speaker/mentor of the event was Said Al-Khudry aka. @profesorcintaid, the author of ‘Pacaran Mulu, Kapan Putusnya??’. I honestly haven’t read the book but at least I already have it now. Will definitely read it after finish reading my on -going one.

The workshop was fun and exciting. We watched  this video before starting the workshop (I recommend you to watch it). I even got a notebook for giving my opinion about it. Then we talked about the definition of non-fiction itself before we go deeper into material on premise, writer’s block and writing techniques. What make it more fun is that we had a chance to practice. Yup. We practiced how to create a premise, how to write a paragraph from 3 words given and basic knowledge on Mind Mapping. I remember that I have read a book about Mind Mapping from Tony Buzan years ago. Seems that I have to read it again 😉

As in my personal opinion, above all the given material, I got new knowledge on how a script turn into a book -since the moderator was from Mizan Publishing who explain a lot about it. I learnt that every one (actually) has the probability to be a writer. No matter their background is. The important is, to be consistent in what they’re doing. I think almost every successful person done it. Consistent.

In that case I will take a baby step for myself. I challenge myself to (at least) post twice a week on March 2017. *fingercrossed

Love,

Tadaaaaa …

Hmm.. is it the right time to set another goal??

Just Enjoy ..

Grey cloud hanging. Rain pouring from the sky while people walk in a hurry. Hoping that no raindrop will reach them. People and not me. No need to hurry, I can’t stop it anyway. Rain will keep pouring no matter how fast I try to walk.

So here I am. Standing .. breathing .. enjoying the cold air.

No need to hurry …

Just enjoy it.

New Home for My Craft

Finally  have a place for my craft story.

http://www.cubbyknot.id

Totally happy with it and literally makes me wanna create more -so I could post something there-

Crafting is like a therapy for me. A shelter where I can escape from the chaotic world. Just stay there, playing with all the bright colors of yarn, tiny button and all the pretty thing.

Please stop by once in a while …

52 WEEKS PHOTO CHALLENGE:WEEK 23 – TREES

I always fascinated with trees.

How they grow so big throughout the year even when nobody seems to care. How they look strong and steady even without leaves.

I like picturing them -in my mind- as a save shelter which never ask too much, never complain, never shout any negative comments. They just stay and be there for me.

If you like to join The Girl That Dream’s Awake 52 Week Photo Challenge as well, here’s what to do:
  1. Create a post entitled 52 weeks photo challenge :week (which week)-(the theme for the week.
  2. Create a pingback to this page or leave the link to your post in the comments box.
  3. Tag the post ’52 weeks’
