I see a room full of bodies with mirror faces. It's easy to say that I see myself in you and you, but if my face were a mirror too, what would we see? Two personalities rebounding? Or just one from the beginning? From the start, we were the same. Yet in that infinite reflection,… Continue reading Mirror
Yeah, I know I forgot to post Monday. I suck. In my defense, I was really busy and didn't even have time to think about what to write. I'm still really busy today but I didn't forget this time! So here's a quick one. This song has some fantastic lyrics. Like gives-me-goosebumps lyrics. But it… Continue reading Write Tunes – Grammatology
Doublethink. Not a hypocrite, just unaware of the contradiction. And in that moment when the two ideas collide, you make a significant choice. Neutrality will always be mistaken for complacency.
Happy 4th! Seems kind of bittersweet to celebrate our independence in the midst of the hundreds of questionable decisions made by our current administration. But it's nice to be able to say we still have several freedoms. It feels good to say that. So here's a song that makes me feel really good. Hope you… Continue reading Write Tunes – Rosé & Veuve
I think I'm going to refrain from progress updates until I get closer to the end. There's just something about setting unrealistic goals publicly on a frequent basis that just bums me out. It bums me out when I don't meet them. It gives me this intense feeling of apprehension. On one hand, I think… Continue reading Lightbulb
What's it take to be the farmer not the man on the farm? If Karma's a bitch then what are we? The way out is damaging. The distillation of what we call progress. Subtle changes in form yet still the same. Who am I to say what it means to be free?
I constantly struggle with how obvious a symbol should or shouldn't be. And most recently, I've been paralyzed with indecision. There's a very blurred line between a totally missing the message and so obvious that it can come off as offensive. Admittedly my reservations of tackling a turbulent topic are probably a contributing force in… Continue reading Toeing the Line
It's time for a progress update! Yeah! Unsurprisingly, I only met half of my goal. I finished one chapter. But I've made a lot of headway on the next one. I've been doing a lot of research. Made a lot of notes. So I still call it a win. Even still, I think I can… Continue reading Write Tunes – Breath
So I got really busy this morning and now I'm late posting this, but I'm still working on the novel a bunch so I'm just going to keep it brief today. I've been thinking a lot about how descriptive I need to be in my writing. Since it's from my protag's POV, I've taken the… Continue reading Something to Hold on to
Lately, I've found that my chapter outlines are just completely pointless. Almost to the point of being self-defeating. I know I've talked about this before but it's actually kind of funny how much of a departure I end up taking from my outlines now. I think it's because when I'm writing the outlines, I'm thinking… Continue reading I just can’t do outlines
