A young girl embraces the heart-shaped trunk of a tree that has been cut down. She clings to it as if willing it to live, but all is not lost: A green shoot has begun to curl from the stump. In the world of the painting, Nevergiveup, which now adorns a building at bustling intersection in the heart of Santiago, Chile, and in reality, both are as tall as the buildings that surround them.
In a phone interview with Creators Project, Italian muralist Millo, a.k.a., Francesco Camillo Giorgino, says he chose to paint Nevergiveup because the building is so centrally located. “I knew there was a possibility that a lot of people would see it so I wanted it to carry a message,” he explains. That message, he says, is about caring for the natural world and changing our relationship with the environment. He believes the message is universal and can be understood by everyone, even city dwellers.

Finishing your draft? Don’t open it again until after Christmas

On November 30th, or thereabouts, Nanowrimoers typed ‘The End’. Whether you’re a Nano or not, the next thing you must do is put the manuscript away. Close the file, stow the notebooks, do a happy dance. Unless you have a deadline that demands you thrash it into shape straight away, don’t touch it for at least a month. At least.

It’s been a tough month with illness in the family, but at a push, I completed my target of 50k for NaNoWriMo. The story requires further development, editing, etc, but I’m pretty damn pleased with how it grew so much from minor plotting. Yay! Taking a well-deserved break. Catch up with you all real soon. :o)
