Wei Liem Ngs hobby used to be daydreaming. He dreamed about owning his own bookstore and including a library in his mansion one day. Most of all, Ng dreamed about writing a book. Sadly, daydreaming had a bad reputation and Ng was left following a career path he did not desire.

With help from his close confidants, Yap and Ping, Ng reveals how he finally learned to see the humorous side of life and eventually summoned the courage to chase his dreams.

"e;In his first essay, Carl states the intent of the book, 'to capture what I believe in at the moment, and reflect the concerns and ideas that I am trying to deal with, work through, and reconcile at this point in my life.' With an overabundance of creative surplus, he poured himself into the work. As with some of his other work, Carl gave himself a constraint. Since the book would be called Writing 30 and would be reflections of one who was turning thirty, why not write it all in thirty days? And so he did."e;The essays, however, are not just about him. In indulging nostalgia and working through his demons, Carl mirrors and exemplifies issues of people going through 'emerging adulthood' ... and sets a roadmap for those navigating the search for identity and sense of possibility."e; - from the Introduction by Honey de Peralta

This self-help book describes how I’ve managed to survive and thrive with bipolar disorder for over 30 years. It offers tips on how to pick a good psychiatrist, how to handle depression, anxiety and insomnia, and how to help a loved one who’s going through a manic episode. It shares with you the lessons I've learned, sometimes the hard way, over the years and also explores the “good crazy” side of being bipolar--and yes, there are some good sides, believe it or not. Many with this disorder are good artists, writers, and musicians. Many are also well-organized and have good sex lives. As the best psychiatrist I ever had told me, “You’re lucky. You’re in good company.” It’s all up to you--the person who has bipolar disorder--to decide if you’re lucky or not. To decide if your glass is half-full or half-empty. I sincerely hope my book will help you and your loved ones. It has received Five and Four Star Reviews.

For most people who seek to create — whether they are artists, writers, or businesspeople — the daily task of immersing themselves in their creative work is both a joy and a profound challenge. Instead of stepping easily into the creative state, they succumb to chronic procrastination and torturous distraction. In Standing at Water’s Edge, psychologist Anne Paris calls on her extensive experience in working with creative clients to explore the deep psychological fears that block us from creative immersion. Employing cutting-edge theory and research, Paris weaves a new understanding of the artist during the creative process. Rather than presenting the creation of art as a lonely, solitary endeavor, she shows how relationships with others are actually crucial to creativity. Shining a light on the innermost experience of the artist as he or she engages with others, the artwork, and the audience, Paris explores how our sense of connection with others can aid or inhibit creative immersion. She reveals a unique model of “mirrors, heroes, and twins” to explore the key relationships that support creativity. Paris’s groundbreaking psychological approach gives artists valuable new insight into their own creative process, allowing them to unlock their potential and finish their greatest projects.
