Title:  The vagina rules: On soup, sincerer love and creative writing
— A confidential closet tête-à-tête with myself
Author: Julie O’Yang
Ah, I miss this dish! Nope, it’s not a book cover.
The unconventional essay is a disquisition on the subject or a series of subjects; a plucky, spirited take on creative writing as a genuine art form. Art that begins with capitalised A favours bold flavours. What’s more, Art favours changes and variations. Like us, Muses of Art love diversity, and these undaunted, unreserved, almost heroic ladies love honesty in their anarchic, seemingly lawless, kitchen. They wear their skin the way other people wear evening dress.  Art is work as flesh and flesh as work – It is a mirror into the writer’s soul.
This is an exciting time for new flavours and changes in the kitchen. With the coming of digital publishing and indie publishing, the basic “rules” for writers are transforming and are adjusting to a new sense of adventure when it comes to creativity and creative writing. The potential readers out there can be reached directly through the Internet. More and more people are looking for creative ways to read. Indeed, reading has become much more a creative, interactive process than ever before. Readers are looking for inspired, inspiring, fun ideas to spice up their reading experience as well as living experience; visions and flavours to bring a special kick to their everyday life, to broaden their everyday horizon.
Julie O’Yang serves them with ditto enthusiasm and imagination, grilled crispy and garden-fresh challenging. To be published by The Book World in the Creative Writing anthology (The Book World, 2012/3(?), Kolkata, India)
