Booster Rockets: 5 Offers of Help I accepted in the last month

January 29, 2014 by Diana Rajchel | Comments Off | Filed in the Big Picture

  It’s worth noting that this blog is highly asynchronous. “Last month” for me is from 12-2 – 1/2. To you, it’s likely you’ll read this in late January. It’s worth noting that in 2013 I just got a LOT of help from friends in general. An enormous, humbling, shocking amount. 1. My friend Jaime […]

Supplies: 5 Fuse Lighters

January 28, 2014 by Diana Rajchel | Comments Off | Filed in the Big Picture

Fuse lighters – popularly known as muses – are people that inspire you/get you all excited to create. There usually is a sexual energy to it, an attraction: most of the time, you are supposed to use this attraction to create, rather than, to, ah…create. This particular meditation is great for me. One of the […]

Supplies: the Problem Minitiuarizers

January 27, 2014 by Diana Rajchel | Comments Off | Filed in the Big Picture

Problem minitiuarizers are usually one-uppers. They always have a bigger problem than you, their pain is more important than yours, no one has ever gone through what they have gone through. In my experience, these are usually women – and their intent is more directly non-benign.  In men’s case, they are completely unaware of how […]

Supplies: Why I’m not trying the new Lug Bolt

January 26, 2014 by Diana Rajchel | Comments Off | Filed in the Big Picture

Past failures. This year I really want to do more fiction submissions. Any fiction. Science fiction. Erotica. Thrillers. That spy novel. The rewritten nanowrimo story that turned into a study on alcoholism – one wherein I set a cast of male characters in a Chick Lit novel. Unconsciously. But I haven’t because I used to […]

Supplies: How my Lug Bolt Satisfies Me

January 24, 2014 by Diana Rajchel | Comments Off | Filed in the Big Picture

My current, best lug bolt is blog writing. It does satisfy me by giving me a place where I can publish my writings/work with immediacy. I used to keep diaries with the fantasy that they would be read after my death – so I always made sure I named names when I felt someone was […]

Supplies: My Booster Rockets

January 23, 2014 by Diana Rajchel | Comments Off | Filed in the Big Picture

I am blessed with a lot of friends that really do give me an amazing boost with their faith in my ability to create: Jaime Dawn Cat Lisa Tonya Xiane Angelique Alissa Jill D. Jill F. That is definitely not all of them. I have amassed a collection of truly rare and stunning female friends. […]

Supplies: Wanted Skills

January 21, 2014 by Diana Rajchel | Comments Off | Filed in the Big Picture

  Wanted: More dancing, maybe a performance or two thrown in. Burlesque preferred; bellydance acceptable. More sense of fun and cameraderie. A good laugh while working once in awhile. Stronger, publishable fiction highly desired. Some zine writing – and the courage to do so – also preferred.Filed under: Supplies

Supplies: Shrink Rays

January 20, 2014 by Diana Rajchel | Comments Off | Filed in the Big Picture

The people that minified my dreams? They aren’t in my life anymore. I evict them all. Last fall I commented on Facebook how I had come to prefer phase 2 of writing – the revision process – to phase 1. A person I considered a close friend in my 20s posted: “How sad. Perhaps you […]

Supplies: the Minitiuarizers

January 19, 2014 by Diana Rajchel | Comments Off | Filed in the Big Picture

Minitiuarizers are the people that encourage you to dream smaller. To cut yourself short. To try for something that is less than your dreams – so basically not your dreams at all. Minituarizers are an interesting subspecies of crazymaker for one reason only: they are rarely if ever 100% malicious. Most genuinely believe they are […]

Supplies: 10 Things I’d Like to Know More About

January 18, 2014 by Diana Rajchel | Comments Off | Filed in the Big Picture

1. Podcasting I have a very specific podcast project in mind. I have gone on a grand total of one podcast, ever. 2. Zines I LOVE zines. LOVE them. I have yet to work up the nerve to make one. 3. Coding html and CSS this is more of a should than a want-to 4. […]
