Buna Andreea :D

In tara, ce sa caut in tara? Aveam un contact la Nemira, am trimis acolo dar mi-au zis nu. Ma rog, pe buna dreptate, nu era pregatit sub nici o forma manuscrisul dar fie. Totusi cred ca a fost si o problema de traducere.

Am trimis la RAO si Polirom un mesaj dar nu mi-au raspuns.

Lucrez la un historical fiction care e jumate YA. :)
Am scris doua romane pana acuma, m-am apucat de al treilea intre timp. Ah, si liceul l-am terminat anul trecut.

Suuper. Felicitari pentru primele doua! Sa urmeze multe altele! Sub ce nume publici?

Eu una nici nu m-am gandit sa incerc in tara, dar nici nu am de gand momentan. Daca cumva voi avea vreodata chef sa scriu in romana, atunci da. ;)

Iar liceul l-am terminat de ceva mai multi ani decat tine, dar nu chair asa multi. :tongue

Numele meu, nu le am cu pseudonime sau alte IDuri. :D

Mersi mersi. E chiar fun, imi ia cam doua luni sa scriu un roman si mult mai mult sa editez/corecturi.

Am incercat sa vad reactia lor, daca ar fi de interes cat de cat. Nemira m-a incurajat si mi-a dat un raport detaliat pe chestia asta, ceea ce a fost de f mare ajutor. Deh, a trebuit sa faca traducere, dar a fost ok :))

Fantasy/romance (mainstream si erotica) si ma tot gandesc la un YA. SA vedem cum o iesi. Din pacate nu reusesc sa scriu foarte mult pe zi asa ca imi ia destul de mult sa termin un roman, dar corecturile le fac repede.

Cel istoric e in romana, dar e for-my-eyes-only, celalalt e in engleza. Pentru asta astept raspuns din partea unei edituri. Au cerut ceva modificari la varianta initiala, am retrimis, acum astept. Adica incerc sa ma concentrez pe cele 2 pe care le am in lucru, dar e greu. ;)

Imi placea si mie Apolodor din Labrador cand eram mic, invatam cand era la scoala dar am prins eu drag de pinguinul ala. :D

Am terminat acuma Sovereign de C.J. Sansom, destul de "literara" cartea pentru un roman istoric.

Mai am Shadow of the Wind de Carlos Ruiz Zafon care sta frumos, la fel dupa primul capitol m-a impresionat. E literatura contemporana.

La Carturesti nu am fost, ca mi-e un pic peste mana, dar poti gasi carti in engleza la magazinele din incinta complexului Carrefour. In Orhideea au sigur. Gasesti si ziare si revistate din strainatate, in general in engleza, dar cred ca au si in franceza sau italiana.

A Little Help Please....I know my grandfather's first name was William, probably given or chose the last name of Cohen on Ellis Island (arrive in 1905). Born on or about February 27, 1887 (86-89). From Rumania (as spelled on document), language was yiddish.

I'm not getting any hits on the Ellis Island Registry. Where in Romania might I go for records, or have they all been lost? I know it was very strange there at the time, name changes, religion changes, etc.. Would appreciate any direction for me to do a record's search. I know nothing about my family on my father's side prior to my grandparents. It's only supposition that he was from Transylvania. Biggest problem is that I don't have a positive last name identification before he married.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Rosalie : )

Hello, Edy! In ce perioade se petrec povestirile tale? Eu am una din vremea vikingilor, una din vremea lui Napoleon, una cam in acelasi timp dar care nu are treaba cu el (1790 - 1800), si mai am trei mai "din vremea noastra".

Eddyz Aquila
09-21-2011, 03:50 PM
Am 2 romane complete pana acuma - unul in secolul 14 (anul 1313) si unul in secolul 16. Eu sunt mare fan al perioadei medievale si specialitatea mea e istorie militara. :)

Elenitsa
09-21-2011, 04:22 PM
Interesant. 1313 si secolul 16... ce tari? (Si, apropo, avem pasiuni comune, Edi - Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Walter Scott, Eiji Yoshikawa).

Povestea mea "cu vikingi", intitulata "Pribegii marilor", se axeaza pe cam multe... (Folosind denumirile actuale, si un rezumat a ceva ce nu e chiar asa de simplu):Fata rapita dintr-o manastire venetiana aproximativ in 1050 este de fapt bizantina, si ajunge pe un ostrov norvegian, de unde pribegii marilor, mai tarziu, fac drumul inapoi, in cautarea unei alte insule unde sa se stabileasca, departe de dusmani... numai ca in urma unei furtuni, insulele care le fusesera recomandate raman nevazute, si ei ajung sa navigheze pana in Mexic (da, am pornit de la ideea ca Quetzalcoatl a fost viking, una dintre supozitiile istorice).

Cea despre care am spus ca e "in perioada 1790-1800 dar nu are nici o treaba cu Napoleon" se numeste "Marea ne cheama" si se petrece in Grecia si Imperiul Otoman, dupa care se continua cu o expeditie in Africa (da, cam in acelasi timp cu cea a lui Mungo Park, dar cu alta destinatie).

Si cu riscul de a va dezamagi (fiindca nu este cea mai buna lucrare a mea, dimpotriva, dar este singura publicata online) va ofer un link pentru "Jocul de sah", o povestioara actuala, din vremea primului razboi din Irak. Daca stiam ca mai urmeaza si un al doilea, n-o mai scriam...

Si da, singura critica pe care a primit-o a fost ca ar fi mai potrivita pentru "colectia roz", faza la care am raspuns si eu ca daca o intentionam asa, ar fi fost mai... indrazneata.

Da, interactive stories. Si la capitolul "cum stau cu scrisul" - avand in vedere ca in prezent sunt doar pe site... datorez raspunsuri tuturor, asta e starea mea naturala ;) (nu imi place sa las pe ceilalti sa astepte dupa mine, asa ca... incerc. Si avand in vedere ca eu am 6 personaje... se mai gaseste de scris).

Mda, capitanul unei HMS "Rose" (fregata care a existat in realitate, l-a escortat pe Sir Woodes Rogers cand a fost numit ca guvernator in Bahamas) exista deja... inca de la inceputul site=ului. :( Sunt sigura ca ai face treaba mai buna in locul scriitoarei respective (care ma enerveaza prin lipsa de initiativa, in primul rand), dar... c'est la vie. :(

Pentru cei care nu mă cunosc: Am scris un roman în engleză, contemporary novel, realist style (whatever that means), un roman în română (de fapt scris mulți ani în urmă, îl editez acum după ce-am învățat aici mai multe în de-ale scrisului) și câteva schițe, short stories, în română, publicate într-o revistă literară online.

S-auzim numai de bine!

TEPELUS! TEPELUS!!!! I've wondered about you, too! (read the excess of [!] as a sign of joy!) I remember sending you back that chapter 2 with just a sprinkle of comments and some info about costume in Tepeș times, and then ... hm. Who knows now? Hard to tell. A couple of things concurred to my absence: father (better), two jobs and a huge glitch in my computer :Hammer: that had left me shaky and speechless (thought I lost everything, some work saved on a back-up disk, but not all.) Another thank you to the Higher Power (or Powers) that I was able to recover the most important chunk of data.

I'm typing now happily at a new laptop. Not so happily though, I still miss the keyboard of my old comp. This k. doesn't work well when I have to type a lot and fast. Soon I'll buy a desktop comp with a good size keyboard.

How are you, your gardening and your writing doing? Mine is in limbo - but I still kept your pertinent comments on my first chapter!

So nice to meet you again. :e2flowers
I'll be around - it feels so good having the weekends to myself.
Cheers
Doina

Bine ai revenit, Doina. :hi:

Ma bucur sa te cunosc.

Mulțumesc de urare, Andreea.

Și eu mă bucur să te cunosc, abia aștept să ”te” citesc. N-am avut timp azi-noapte să citesc toate postările din acest thread așa că recuperez acum, cu ajutorul :e2coffee: (brewed Turkish style) nici nu se poate altfel.

Pe curând - so long (I hate î din â - if you knew how much headache this new rule gives us in the library with books' titles :e2hammer:)

Daca lipsesc si eu un pic de aici apare restul lumii...

Va urez tuturor o saptamana buna, ca incepe maine...

Pot sa simt aroma cafelei tale, Doina... si daca iti plac corabiile cu panze si povestile cu pirati, poate te corup pe tine sa vii cu un personaj in povestea noastra... ca Edi nu vrea decat capitan de marina, si postul e ocupat... :(

Oricum, poti sa te uiti cand vrei si cat vrei,si sa-ti faci o idee daca te inspira si pe tine creator ;)

Saptamana viitoare, cand termin cronica pe luna asta pentru site, o sa va postez aici link-ul - da o idee mai buna asupra intregii activitati dintr-o luna...

Ai văzut ce se-ntâmplă dacă lipsești? Mă voi duce la link-ul tău dar nu promit nimic la creație cu pirați. În afară de Johnny Depp-piratul n-am prea urmărit povești de genul acesta, dar asta-i o lipsă de-a mea, promit să mă pun la punct. Poate azi să dau o raită pe acolo, asta printre domestic chores care nu se mai termină [*sigh*] It's more exciting to be here!

Iar daca iti plac si ai imaginatie... e suficient sa intri in pielea unui personaj. Cea mai mica membra e o fata de 15 ani din Colorado, care m-a entuziasmat cu talentul ei literar. Dar avem de toate varstele si din destule tari...

Adagio

Interesant ce-ai scris. Voi veni acolo, fără discuție, doar să mă mai pun la punct cu fișierele în computer, cu manuscrisul meu abandonat, să văd pe unde stau. Și sunt cam obosită, dar n-are rost să mă plâng, toți lucrăm f/t și stăm prost cu timpul. Azi m-am baladat prin AW să mă pun la curent cu ce-i nou pe-aici, am rezolvat și o problemă tech (cu mouse-ul), și uite-așa trece timpul! Mai trebuie să spăl și vase. Of.
Te voi ține la curent.
Cu drag,
Doina

Glad to hear things with you and your father are better now. I had a major computer malfunction last November, as in, the hard drive kicked it. Lost everything that I didn't have backed up, which meant a good portion of my novel. I got a new laptop, sulked for a few weeks, and picked myself up and rewrote the chapters I lost. I also signed up with Dropbox so my files also get saved there automatically, so in the event this computer decides to kick it too, I'll still have all of my writing on my Dropbox account. Still need to invest in a flash drive, I have a lot of pictures too I need to back up, and I lost most of my pictures on my old laptop.

Anyway, I haven't really worked much on my novel in the past few months, my mind has been on gardening and work wears me out. Work has slowed and soon the flowers will so to sleep, so during the long winter months I'll be writing again. And drawing. I drew a portrait of my boyfriend that turned out surprisingly well. Didn't think I could draw so good, especially since it had been years since I've drawn anything.

Thanks for the compliment on my avatar. I think autumn is my favorite season, or maybe it's spring. I love them both.

Adagio
10-03-2011, 07:04 AM
Oh, Tepelus, your story is even worse than mine. I am so sorry. Let me see if I can find the two chapters you'd sent me, though I lost data, too. Can't remember now.
I'm using now Dropbox, but I didn't do much work lately.
I, too, sulked for some time. My laptop is OK, but still it gives me jitters each time I switch it on, the image on the screen gets all scrambled, I have to kick the lid until the image stabilizes. That's why I'm still using the old comp, as Word Processor. I will not find peace of mind until I'll buy a new desktop.
I know you have a demanding job so I'm glad you can relax a little. Enjoy your gardening. My only gardening is on the balcony (a few pots with geraniums and petunias), and I have a couple of pots at work. We don't get daylight, but the plants are doing OK in the fluorescent lights.

Cheers and gook luck with your drawing. BTW, me too, I tried my hand at drawing, but I'm not that good. I can copy from another picture but not from nature. Hope to see you around.

Doina

Tepelus
10-03-2011, 07:30 AM
Here's the picture I drew of my boyfriend. The original looks much better than this scanned copy, because you can see the details and shading which the scanner doesn't pick up.

http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z16/tepelus_album/MyJerry-1.jpg

Actually, the only chapters I had saved were the first three, the first two of which I gave you. The rest, poof! Gone. In an instant. But they're rewritten, and maybe better than before. But thanks for the offer in finding them for me.

The picture I'm working on now is of Andrei Andrei, in the buff. He's freakin' hot. :)

Adagio
10-04-2011, 10:07 PM
Tepelus, you are so talented! Look at how the shadows and lights play on his face, even with the scanner, amazing. I'll never be able to draw like this. You must have had some schooling, this is professional technique. Thank you for sharing "the face!" There's kindness and humor in the face. Am I right?

I'm sorry I didn't get here earlier to leave a word but now I'm down with the flu bug, as if that's all I needed. I look and feel like a zombie (whatever a zombie feels and looks!) I was in the rain without an umbrella and dressed in light clothes, for summer (clinging to summer.)

Cheers and good luck with the drawing. I'll ask you a few questions on gardening but not now, I can't keep my eyes and mind focused.

Andreea, ați simțit cutremurul? Mama mi-a spus că ați mai trecut printr-o sperietură, dar ea nu l-a simțit. Știu ce înseamnă, eram pe lume în 1977, martie, chiar în centrul Bucureștiul când a fost cel mare și urât ... dar să nu abordăm subiecte sinistre.

Eram la serviciu, dar nu l-am simtit, probabil pentru ca motaiam. :tongue

Aha. Eu am fost singura din birou care a simțit cutremurul din NY, când mi-am întrebat colegii s-au uitat la mine parcă aș fi fost nebună, mai să cred și eu că nu-s zdravănă. Asta până au apărut confirmările oficiale!

You mean this thing: Ș

Sara - Basically, a comma under an S gives the Sh, sound. Comma under a T gives the Ts (like the "ts" in "cats"), sound. The cedilla is also used, but incorrect. I've had to use a cedilla for a long time until now Windows 7 finally has the comma under the S and T in the character map, so now I use that in my WIP instead.
