My ode to the beauty of solitude

My ode to the beauty of solitude

I am constantly composing in my mind. Sentences. Images. Fitting stories together in the quiet of my skull. If you’ve ever wondered why I like to be alone all the time it’s because when I am alone I can think. And thinking to me is like what water is to our bodies. It keeps me […]

What I write about—

Posted on Jul 19, 2017 in Fiction, In my head, Thoughts on the writing life

So I have come to a conclusion. Or maybe an epiphany. Or maybe a realization. I don’t know. One of those things for sure. I write about one thing. Over and over again. Different characters.

What I have to give

Lately I have been feeling myself dragged into this overwhelming darkness, this depression, I guess you might call it. But it doesn’t feel like my normal depressive state, it doesn’t come from inside of me but instead comes from outside of me. Like some weight I am lugging around, it pulls me down into the […]

What I read—2017 (Running list)

Posted on Feb 12, 2017 in reading

So as my 2017 goals state I am trying to read more books just for the pure joy of getting lost in a story, like I used to when I was a youngster, which means that I am going to be reading more fantasy, thrillers and mystery books this year since these are the books […]

POEM: Salt the colour of a God

Last year I took part in the  CV2 magazine’s 2- day poem contest, which if you don’t know is a contest in which they provide you with ten words and you must write a poem in 48 hours. Sadly my poem didn’t win but I thought I’d share it anyways because why not? Its a […]
