So, this little space here –> Ms.Chutzpah has gotten more eyes on it that I’d imagined! It’s less than 6 months old and the traffic’s plenty and wide, and references for showcasing empowering women are coming in nicely.
After 24 hours of deep thought just on this alone, (which is a challenge considering my ADD mind among other things!) I had to come up with a viable approach to allow the site to grow. Coz it wants to and it is the right thing to do.
So, is there someone out there who wants to write about wonderful women they know. They will get to interview, talk and grow with the woman they find inspiring, write up, edit and then publish their piece. Obviously, you are only paid for your time and effort by happiness and a growing sense of inspiration and accomplishment. :-)
If you are one of those writers/bloggers who value their work and look for intangible benefits, then you know this is a great offer. Tangible benefits is your own growth and exposure to a large set of audience (it’s pretty darn wide) and that you own and take pride in your work.
Since the site focuses on women in the USA, It would naturally follow that you live here in EST through PST time zones.

Yep, we had a sari party! After a bit of hesitation and some scheduling, this is what happened. Click here to read on and join the initiative. It’s a fun glamorous way to donate. :)
I have nothing to say.
Ive sat and stared at the screen for a good 45 minutes trying to drum up of something substantial, incredible, funny or reflective for me to write on. Of course various thoughts came in, but none deemed worthy for a whole post in itself. I thought I’d do a potpourri, but my mind is a tangled mess of thoughts. Not unlike the wires that form a slithering snake pit behind the TV and the music system.
So yes, I have nothing.
But you know, nothing is a great place to be.
I wish my mind had nothing in it.
No, like not asking to be empty, but asking it to be filled with nothing. There *is* a difference.
Or maybe there isn’t. Am as confused as you are getting reading this :)
So, remember how the world came about from nothing? Like the sound OM, and there was vaccum and there was nothing, and bam! God rubbed his hands in glee and decided to create us. Yeah.
Oh ok, fine! The Big bang Theory happened and then there was something out of nothing!
so, either way, you see how Something gets created out of Nothing?
Pretty cool eh, when you think about it?
That’s what creation is. Creativity is really about creating something from nothing. Nothing but a spark. A spark of thought, a sound, a flash or BOOM, something happens and there is life. All that requires is a small ignition. A thought that can string a whole bunch of words, and they make sense, all of it. You just have to squint your eyes, tilt your head or take a step back and look at what just happened and it would all make sense.
In the large big picture I mean.
Like this post.
I just wrote 300 odd words on nothing.
That’s what writing is all about. That you make that effort and start hammering words out. Don’t wonder dont plot don’t project, just do. Works the same with most others. If it worked for the woodpecker and for the otter and for the ants and the relentless Einstein (who incidentally finally cracked that damn light bulb only after 200 some tries, or maybe it was 2000, who’s counting?) it would work for you and me and well, it worked for Seinfeld! ..and didnt he run it for 9 years and to eternity considering the reruns will never ever stop!
So yeah, a lot of good comes out of nothing.
Just wait for that spark though. The spark is what makes the difference.
