INFORMATION
Orakiruu means 'full moon'.

The moon has always fascinated me. It is always changing and yet ever constant in its orbit around the Earth.

As a traveler--a wanderer and a nomad--it is a comfort to me that anywhere I go the moon is there. Even when I don't see it, I can feel its presence.

I believe we're all like the moon with its many different faces. We have a dark side, a bright side, and shadows of different shades. My writing reflects all the different facets, shades, and shadows of who I am and how I perceive the world.

Orakiruu: I know that writing is a skill that improves with practice-- just like a muscle that requires exercise to build and strengthen. But I'm finding it really difficult to find time in the day to write. My demanding job, family obligations and life in general leaves me too exhausted each day to write. Does anyone have any tips/tricks to suggest? I'd appreciate any input. Thanks!

    michaelcahill: You have to force yourself. Treat it like a job. I'm sure there are many things like work you'd just as soon skip, but you are obligated to do them. Treat your writing the same way. With practice you'll find that you are able to write in the middle of a tornado. It's a difficult problem and I can relate completely especially now when I'm in the same boat with you at the moment. Enter some prompts and force yourself to finish your entry. It works.

    Orakiruu: Thanks, MichaelCahill! I guess deep down I KNOW I have to force myself. After all, mere desire is nothing if it doesn't come with action. I do want to get to the point where I can, as you say, "write in the middle of a tornado." And I know it's not going to be easy but it's reassuring to know that there are people like you who can relate to my journey and are being supportive. Thanks again!

Orakiruu: I've decided to stop dreaming about being a writer and to actually start doing it. I've much trepidation and fear but not more than my excitement for the infinite possibilities that lie ahead. I'm ready to leap out of my comfort zone and free fall to fly. Geronimoooooooo!!!!! :)
