Writing, Magic, Obsessions

The unexplained happenings in the writing world. If you write enough, you tend to notice certain patterns. It’s usually a series of coincidences, but then again you may just become a hyper observant creative. You need the minute details for your story, so to find them you may become borderline obsessed with finding the answers.Continue reading “Writing, Magic, Obsessions”

It Healed Me

Healing yourself is the best way to write creatively. On the flip side writing creatively is the best way to heal yourself. I grew up making a lot of mistakes. For a long time, I thought I was making significantly more mistakes than others but that was just insecurity talking. I still don’t like makingContinue reading “It Healed Me”

Tools to Experience Freedom to Grow

Creative freedom is a gift we have as humans beings. It liberates us from a world that would be just fine seeing us lose our life to fit into their box.

Frankenstein’s Monster

Will to Rebuild

I had my first gym session since I got Covid in December on Monday. Which means I have to rebuild muscles. I was not doing much exercise which isn’t like me at all. I at the least do home workouts when I can’t make the gym. But the last couple months I just chilled. What’sContinue reading “Will to Rebuild”
