My Top 10 Songs of ESC 2017

Tonight’s the night: The Eurovision Song Contest is taking place in Kiev, Ukraine. I am really looking forward to this event, since I have followed ESC regularly since 2013, when my friend Tiziana from Scrabbled Rambles infected me with the ESC virus. 😉

This year some really great songs will be presented and I thought, I could show you my top 10 favorite songs of ESC 2017.

Here we go!

Writing Up Wednesday #7: The Craft of Writing

Howdy everyone,

nice to see you here again. Thanks for visiting my blog. Today we want to talk about writing again – together with Lizzy from The Bent Bookworm.

The topic of the new WUW is: The Craft of Writing.

Lizzy writes on her blog:

How do you learn? Some people insist writers are born, not made. Others say it takes years of learning from authors and teachers to perfect the art. What do you think? What have you done to learn your craft (or not)?

I will try to answer these questions in this blog post.

Postcard Rarities

Howdy folks,

thanks for stopping by, it’s nice that you visit my blog again. Maybe you have noticed it that this week there was no new topic of Writing Up Wednesday. It’s because Lizzy made a pause of WUW this week. But hopefully, next week it will continue.

I haven’t posted a postcard-related blog post in a while, so I thought it’s time to do that again. My postcard collection meanwhile counts over 1,000 postcards and it’s still growing. I thought that I could show you some rarities, resp. postcards from places where you don’t get a postcard from very often.

Now it’s time for the postcards. Maybe you’ll find a little inspiriation while viewing them.

Get To Know Me TAG

I saw this tag on Lizzy’s blog The Bent Bookworm and decided to take part, too. I found it quite interesting and thought that it might be a good idea to introduce myself a little bit further. Maybe you’ll find something out about me that you didn’t know yet. 😉

“Aspiring” Writer? No, thanks!

Over and over I hear people call themselves “aspiring” writers. I always had a problem with that term, because it never really made sense to me. Why “aspiring”? It sounds to me like someone who wants to write, but doesn’t dare to do it. Or someone who would like to be a writer, but thinks they doesn’t have the time or money for being one. That’s all bad excuses!

In the following I will tell you, what I personally think about “aspiring” writers.

Today it’s about the following question: What’s your POV?

Are You A Plotter Or Pantser?

Recently I stumbled upon an old article I wrote on my German blog some time ago. In this article I asked my readers whether they are plotters or pantsers. So, I thought, why not discussing this topic on my English blog, too?

But first of all we should clarify what these terms mean and what are the differences between those two types of writers. In the end of the article I’d like to answer the question myself and tell you if I’m rather a plotter or a pantser.

Today she is discussing the following topic: “What Genre is Your Novel…or Does It Even Have One??

Music Review: “Theater of Dimensions” by Xandria

Artist: Xandria

“Theater of Dimensions” is the 7th studio album of the German symphonic metal band Xandria. Founded in 1994 in Bielefeld, the band changed her singer several times. Currently they are happy with the Dutch singer Dianne van Giersbergen, whose voice reminded me a little of Tarja Turunen, the former singer of the Finnish band Nightwish.
