Sensation

I'm struggling to find something that hasn't been said already. I know there's some string of words that wants to be said but it's all so familiar now. Honestly, I'm having trouble pinpointing my ideas for this post after watching the Sense8 finale this morning, and, just by the way, its brilliance and complexity cannot… Continue reading Sensation

Strength to Protect What Matters

So, quick progress update: I haven't felt this motivated in a very long time. Finally, I'm back in the headspace of almost exclusively thinking about writing and it's fantastic. But I'd be lying if I said I got to this point alone. If it weren't for my friend being genuinely interested in the story and… Continue reading Strength to Protect What Matters

Not too much longer

I procrastinate a lot. I mean a lot. Of course, I'm referring to writing this novel. Admittedly, I can say I'm procrastinating a lot less than I have been lately but it's still like pulling teeth to an extent. It's like I always just say to myself "I'll do it tomorrow" but tomorrow never comes,… Continue reading Not too much longer

Introspectively Optimistic

Is it weird that the very same characters that I created myself are helping me get through my depression? I really don't how else I can explain the phenomenon, but I can actually just close my eyes and just like have a conversation with them. And it honestly just makes me feel better. I mean… Continue reading Introspectively Optimistic

Balancing Feel and Story

More often than not, I'll forfeit the ability to experience a story with my own imagination via books for watching TV or a movie. It's weird to admit as someone who's studied English for the better part of his life, but I really don't love reading. I honestly never really did. In fact, unless I've… Continue reading Balancing Feel and Story

Don’t let your dreams be dreams

"Don't assume your dreams are just fantasy. If you can imagine a world, believe in it... and dive in." Yeah, this is another Kingdom Hearts reference. Sorry, not sorry. And yeah, that headline is from Shia LaBeouf's "Just Do It" motivational speech. Again, sorry, not sorry. Anyway. I've been having these weird thoughts lately. We're done with… Continue reading Don’t let your dreams be dreams

When you play the Game of Thrones

I'm not sure if it's because I'm still recovering from last night's Game of Thrones, but I may be having an existential crisis over things happening behind the scenes. In regards to the episode and my own writing. But don't be alarmed, no spoilers here. So last night we learned that there were some crucial… Continue reading When you play the Game of Thrones

Inspiration in the Works

Annnd for today's topic: Inspiration. One thing that everyone seems to look for nowadays is an original idea, which is absolutely great if you have one. Originality is so sought after because it's so hard to come by because there are over seven billion people alive today. The Population Reference Bureau estimates that a whopping… Continue reading Inspiration in the Works
