Ten Minutes Bro

I have decided to try something and that is to do something for ten minutes a day. My theory is this: dedicating ten minutes to a task is easier than committing to half an hour or more. By saying I’ll do something for ten minutes, I’ll end up spending more time on them anyway whilst […]

Oh Hey Perfectionism

Get a cup of tea because we’re here for the long haul, campers. You ready? Okay. Perfectionism can look different to what I typically associate with it. I thought I wasn’t a perfectionist because I started a blog where I had to write every day regardless of how polished or refined my writing was. I […]

Blank Pages / Poem

I feel like I have run out of blogging words, so read this short poem I wrote instead, called ‘Blank Pages’. Words sitting on the page in front of me Standing on the outside looking in. Tell me what you see when you look inside You don’t show your tears – There’s nothing left to […]

Comfort in the Cold

Something I highly approve of is the fact that I can write a blog post in the comfiest clothes known to man, but no one has to know. I mean, you’ve probably all guessed from the way I go on about winter clothes, but my point remains: you see my words not my soft jumpers. […]

Poems are Easier

Poems can be easier to post on my blog because they can be abstract and I can hide behind a metaphor without fully explaining the meaning of it. There’s so much room to interpret what it means that the significance of the poem gets lost underneath the struggle to understand it. With a poem, the […]

Us, Today / Poem

What happens to me sometimes when I’m writing is a piece goes somewhere I’m not expecting it to. I can start off a poem with an intent, and then it goes in a different direction just because, which is fine, but that can result in the poem not being as personal to me as it […]

So It Begins

One of my sisters and I decided that we would read Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte at the same time, then talk about it. Our first goal is to read the first five chapters, which is fifty pages or so, then discuss; and so on until completion. This doesn’t seem like a hard thing to […]

Stop Writing / Playlist

I mentioned that I had a break-from-writing playlist, and here it is! Get up from your laptop and get grooving, am I right am I right. 1/ We Don’t Believe What’s on TV (Twenty-One Pilots) “I need to know that when I fail you’ll still be here.” 2/ A-Punk (Vampire Weekend) “Look outside at the […]

April Diary / Camp NaNo 2018

Hello, campers! In my post April Camper I mentioned that this April I’m participating in Camp NaNoWriMo. Each day, I’ve been writing just a little bit about how it’s going, and I decided to compile it for my blog. A little diary, as you will. The reason I’m posting this now instead of at the […]

April Camper

I’m sitting in the sunniest spot on the house; a small table by our kitchen. I’m eating an omelette and my tea has just been poured. It’s the third of April, and it’s time for April Camper! I did a list similar to this in March and I liked it, so here’s another one. It’s […]
