If you want to write – then write.
Very few writers begin with immediate success, and if there’s anything to be gained from King’s book, it’s that you start with rejection. King began submitting stories to magazines as early as middle school, and whenever he received a rejection, he would pin the letter on a wall. By the time he was 14, he had accumulated so many letters that the pin could hardly support their weight. Yet none of these rejections daunted him.

For those who celebrate Christmas, I am sure that you are already making your Christmas lists. I know I have started mine rather early this year. When reviewing my list, it is apparent that I am in a fashionable state of mind. Here are some of the fashion items I am hoping to find under my Christmas tree this year:
- Cat eye sunglasses
- Faux fur coats or vests
- Black leather gloves
- Ankle booties
- Sleeveless turtleneck dresses (Think Audrey Hepburn or Jackie Onassis)
- Floppy black hats
- Leather pencil midi skirts
- Tribal pattern ponchos
- Anything in polka dot or gingham print
- Crimson lipstick
- Black tights
- Go-Go boots
- Tweed jackets
- Nike runners
What are you asking for Christmas? Tell me all about it!
Days just pass by when you’re dressed to impress.
Although the start of exams is tempting me into wearing leggings and sweaters, I am avoiding falling into that slump and trying to stay as inspired as I can to wear the clothes that make me feel good about myself. You can be stylish without dressing drastically or over-the-top, and that it what I tried to showcase in my outfit for today.
Polka dots are one of my favourite prints. I love them not just because they were the focal print of the 1950s, but they are also fun and upbeat. This polka dot dress is fun and flirt and represents everything girly. The pearls are also a classic touch.
This look is a nod to the fashion of the 50s, an era that very much inspires most of my wardrobe. Every time I wear this particular outfit, it automatically makes me feel happy. That should always be the intention of fashion – make you happy. Dress – Forever21
