You inside of Tetris:how to avoid artist's blocks
In this article you'll find some tips that can help you gain inspiration or trigger your imagination. I hope my little article will be helpful to you.
1. Play with words.
I can't even say how much this method helped me to stumble upon fresh ideas. How does it work? Simple. Just relax and try to lead an inner monologue with yourself trying out to distort words, sentences and collocations that you have known you're whole life. For example: you know the meaning of words "to fall in love" but can someone "fall in hate"? And how do you call a drunkard that drinks with another guy for social reasons? An al- co- holic... just like co-pilot. Try to think of a word that sounds alike to the one you're thinking of. I called the cat of my hereo in my novel-to-be "Inquilibrium"... WOmandragora/WOmandrake (no chauvinistic message behind this - honestly!). I also wrote about it in my article about music. You can find the link on the bottom of the article (I hope I won't forget to enclose the l

Megapixels aren't everything
Only a few years ago, finding a five or six megapixel camera was hard -- not to mention a bit expensive. But, as with any technology, the price eventually comes down. Now there are eight, 10, 12 and higher megapixels available, but it doesn't mean that a camera with only five is obsolete.
The best digital cameras out there don't necessarily have the most megapixels. Now, I do understand that having a 16.7 megapixel Canon is obviously not a setback -- but you can find quality cameras that are in the five to six megapixel range.
Remember, megapixels don't automatically make for a better picture. They increase the photographer's ability to zoom in digitally and while retaining picture clarity. They also allow for tighter cropping while still producing a quality image. For most day-to-day use, and most print sizes under 11x16, a smaller megapixel count can perfectly do the trick.
Here are a few great cameras in the under $900.00 range that can get the job done, and most people will never b

Just your friendly neighborhood harpy!

I haven't been here in a while, for which I apologize. Life has happened, as it sometimes does, but it's about the time for renewal and growth so I've decided to stash everything in storage and move to a new account. I appreciate all the encouragement I've received over the years and hope that everyone has a joyous New Year.

My new account can be found here: harpydora

Hey I know you don't know me but I'm trying to track down a mutual friend of ours who went by the name Skrog. I don't know if you remember her or whatever but if you do and you know where I can find her, I would be ridiculously in your debt. Thanks. >_<
