Zadie Smith gives her list of ten rules of writing.

Zadie Smith gives her list of ten rules of writing. Via Brain Pickings. (thank you for the wonderful content you publish Maria Popova.it is very enriching!)

  1. When still a child, make sure you read a lot of books. Spend more time doing this than anything else.
  2. When an adult, try to read your own work as a stranger would read it, or even better, as an enemy would.
  3. Don’t romanticise your ‘vocation’. You can either write good sentences or you can’t. There is no ‘writer’s lifestyle’. All that matters is what you leave on the page.
  4. Avoid your weaknesses. But do this without telling yourself that the things you can’t do aren’t worth doing. Don’t mask self-doubt with contempt.
  5. Leave a decent space of time between writing something and editing it.
  6. Avoid cliques, gangs, groups. The presence of a crowd won’t make your writing any better than it is.
  7. Work on a computer that is disconnected from the ­internet.
  8. Protect the time and space in which you write. Keep everybody away from it, even the people who are most important to you.
  9. Don’t confuse honours with achievement.
  10. Tell the truth through whichever veil comes to hand — but tell it. Resign yourself to the lifelong sadness that comes from never ­being satisfied.

Home interiors…spaces – I

September 28, 2012 § 5 Comments

Two things… Firstly, I am a complete sucker for anything to do with buildings. I love them. Interiors, design, home decor… obsessed.              Secondly, i love this blog by the famous Mr. Michael Mundy… An afternoon with    where he visits people in their spaces. He clicks the most beautiful pictures. Take a look later.

So I was in my routine browsing session on the internet where I save pictures that I like. (but of course everyone does that)And I love some of them so much, the ideas, the design, colors, I wanted to share them with you.

I find I gravitate towards minimalist spaces. Especially the kinds with light colored walls, simple design, open, very functional. I always feel the space you live in affects you a lot. It goes both ways. The space picks up your essence over time and you start to feel it too. It gives you a vibe. And I dont mean in the vaastushastra/ feng shui way. (I am not a big fan of that.)  Design is of utmost importance! Also, every space should be personal. It should have a character. I know some people who let their spaces remain kindof…sterile. No personal touch, unproductive.Flat and stagnant. When I come across such places I feel horror. Even a misplaced sweater adds a touch!

Here is a selection of images for the living room that I really like…

Lots of frames and a white wall.

a creme look… and smart decor.

big windows and lots of light , a collection of objects that make it interesting

low height furniture, again, lots of light

a dash of colour, red curtains, colored carpet, wooden floor

simple and minimalist!
