    Now I Just Need To Find A Way To Make A Living At It...

    I feel I'm at a crossroads in life, and the death of a friend recently has spiraled me into a introspective conundrum. I LOVE to write, not so much as a way to give my life narcissistic significance, but because i enjoy sharing my perspective on things. It is of course, deeply...

    Release

    Writing is definitely my most commonly performed method of emotional release . I do it every day, whether on EP or in my journal at home. I have been writing and keeping a journal since I was about 9 years old and I still look back through those old journals every now and then...

    And I Shall Say...

    When the man you have been brave enough to love No longer wants you in his home; You will ask. Where did he go? And I will say; He loves you a different way every five seconds. You’re there, cooking some oatmeal. He loves you like mother when you pour the milk in the pot. He...

    Writing Is An Obsession

    I can't remember a time when writing wasn't an important part of my life. Going into a store that sells paper, notebooks, journals, pens, pencils,ink is like an aphrodesiac. I cannot walk out empty handed.

    I have expressed myself through writing

    since I was very young, elementary school, probably around age 7-8. I used to keep journals, and I saved them for years, until the majority of them were destroyed in the Hurricane down south. I was heart-broken, I didn't care about my music, clothing, electronics, etc...

    Mixed 'N' Matched Love: Ch. 1

    Drew's POV: "Drew, are you still asleep?" I heard mom's voice calling from downstairs. And yes I was. I didn't get the best sleep last night, so I wanted to sleep in late today, but that obviously wasn't part of the plan today. "Don't you remember you have to meet Nick in the...

    It's more than a want, it's a NEED

    For the past year, I have thought of myself as a "wannabe" writer. One who WANTED to write a story; or in my case, memoirs of my first love. I thought that it would be an admirable goal to produce a book since I am not working outside the home and I thought of it in a slightly...

    Fading

    Life is full of expectation,  Haunting memories cling.  Simple pleasures not enough,  Calming sounds no longer soothing.  Where did the light go?  How did I not see the flowers grow?  Day breaks again.  Warm winds wash over me.  I am almost there,  The place where...

    It's Not Only A Life Saver...

    Writing is my best way of expressing myself. I've called it my 'clay' since the end of primary school. When I'm writing down my memories of a road-trip of many years ago, it's takes a little time to get into it, but once I'm in it, I'm really in it. :) In other words ;) I can...

    But it's becoming a lost art.

    I'm deeply saddened by this, but in my mind it's just so true. My younger brothers are in school, and every year, they're writing less and less and doing more powerpoints and slide shows. The more they do these things, the worse their ability to express themselves in words is...
