The Wretched Redemption of Writing

Writing has incredible healing properties. And it can tear you apart limb from limb. At least my broken hearts can be put to paper, my tears turned to words. At least chaos can turn inspiration, dreams can spin a story. I am happy with being a writer. I love finding creativity everywhere I look as... Continue Reading →

Boy, Does Life Get in the Way

It's so disappointing to me how I fall out of my most valued habits as life provides excuse after excuse. A short list of habits I fell out of last semester: 1.
