The Art and Science of Writing…A Hit or Miss Affair!

Writing, as anyone who is involved in this fascinating combination of art and science knows, is an unpredictable process to say the least! Our relationship with the process of writing, however is unique for each of us… or is it?

Many times, at inconvenient times, thoughts travel through my mind at the speed of lightening. I quickly turn the light on in the middle of the night and commit to them to paper, in a note- book, the old fashion way. These thoughts once on paper take a different life of their own… I cannot deny their existance, I have a responsibility!

Many times in the light of the morning they turn out to be totally useless! However, in the darkness of the night they sparkled! In that moment I was convinced of their potential value and uniqueness. I felt an urge, I felt under some sort of moral obligation to catch the thoughts, not let them leave the space of my bedroom and force them to paper forever!
Why would that be? In a strange way, now that I think of the process… I violate the freedom of my own thoughts to wonder as they pleased! On the other hand, they already mine, in My mind… or were they “send” by a Higher- Power to my mind, and if so, I had a responsibility! They became my thoughts, not just fleeting thoughts!

Just as not all artists paint the same picture, not all writers experience the same creative processes. Frankly, that would be very boring of all readers and admirers of art!
I could only guess other’s creative processes but describe mine. After many years of asking myself why I write I concluded that deep rooted inside my heart there is a desire and idealistic hope that a that specific thought might change or help someone in this troubled world and maybe I am just the conduit!

Is this a general trait of most writers?

Do all writers feel an irresistable urge to catch the true meaning of the thoughts visiting our minds at inconvenient times of day or night? Do we all hope some kind of life changing idea would be doomed to darkness if we don’t bring it to light?

Hmm… these thoughts just paraded through my mind and without asking for permission, I am committing them to paper for us to debate.
Officially they became intellectual property!
Please share with us WHAT is your relationship with the thoughts which visit your mind? Do you ” catch” them or let them go?


This is a MUST READ for all bloggers, writers and anyone who writes a blog and uses their legal name as the name of their blog.

As always,your feedback is very important and I ask to please SHARE this story, so other bloggers and writers will become aware of how their legal name domain could make money for others without their knowledge.

I have been blogging on Word Press since December of 2010. I treasure the opportunity to write and share with my friends, colleagues and readers topics which better or made our lives easier or better.
I used and with a difficult name like Rodica Mihalis, did not think someone will buy my legal name domain!
I did not think my name, which I have to spell three times for any customer service representative, was in danger of being “kidnapped!”. Guided by that logic, I did not buy my own legal name!

About a year ago, I noticed a notice popping up on my screen, informing me that rodicamihalis dot com was no longer available! I called or a similar company selling domains, to find out that “someone,” registered “private,” purchased my name domain. I was told by the very polite representative, this was a “profession” called “domainers,” or “cyber scouts.” In other words, because I didn’t think anyone would buy my difficult name, Rodica Mihalis, but my articles, meant to help others for free, created traffic, a “secret” domainer bought it!

Immediately, my immagination went wilde:

I had visions of some guyor gal, or a couple, smoking Cuban cigars and menthol cigarettes and sipping Margaritas on a private beach, while placing “bets for domains of naive, bordering stupid bloggers, like me who work for free in the freezing weather on the East Coast!

As if that was not enough to take my self-esteem to the basement, recently, I discovered the domainer put the site up for sale for 12 TIMES the price of his purchase.

But wait! That’s not all, as the advertisements targeting insomniacs like me, go at 3:00 AM!!!

I also discovered that while waiting for a purchaser, the owner of my legal name domain, is selling advertising for a FEE to 6-8 businesses, which all link to Amazon through MY NAME DOMAIN!!!

I felt STRIPPED of my name! This is how I came up with the name of the new site: The Nude Truth!!!

I don’t understand the intricate ways of cyber technology, but I understand the concept of legalized cyber theft!

This is the reason I decided to migrate all my hard work, 423 articles, which I wrote for free with the intention to help others, to a NEW WEB SITE:
The Nude Truth – Where we strip life of lies and reveal the truth! (

The mission of the site is to do just that: expose the truth!

We are in the process of improving the new site, but I feel strongly “domainers,” is not a profession, especially when purchasing someone’s legal name and not some fictitious web site name.

I hope you will share this information with other writers and bloggers and also that you will take the time to leave a comment.

I am considering starting a petition asking to make it illegal to purchase someone’s legal name domain, without FIRST making that domain available to the owner of the name. In other words, if someone whose business is to make money off of others FREE work, the victim should at least be given the chance of not becoming a victim.

What do you think?

I promise, The Nude Truth, will provide even more interesting and helpful information on many topics, so that our lives will be better!
Thank you.
