The Dreamer


Empty.
When you can’t find the words to express how you feel.
Your heart is shackled by some unseen force; yearning, scraping for appeal.
How is it, when the moon is high, are my thoughts no longer dry?
Surrounded, I am a waste land: disregarded. Unnoticed.
But alone, I am me. 
I am no longer empty.

It’s those times in the day, when everything is calm.
Everything is gentle. Secure. Yet also wild.
That my wall is naught but a shattered glass, broken free by endless imagines.
They flood my mind with ideas. Some, I daresay, too strange.
It is during those times of day, that reality is fantasy, and fantasy is reality.

Where I am me, I have no limits for how far my mind can wander.
Things that others find unimportant, are then at the peak of my attention.
The sky is the limit, so we’ve all been told.
But why not the galaxies?
Why not travel on, instead of stopping half way?

The clouds are beautiful, you might say, and dare I disagree.
But the clouds are just the beginning, say I, the dreamer.
The star sweeper. Daydreamer.

Time




What is time, but a fleeting motion?
A passing of thoughts.
Our window into the past.
The future.

Time is now.
It is the essence of life.
What to do with something so fragile?
We can spend it, or waste it.

When might it end?
Come now, come tomorrow.
A second more.
Or not yet, a thousand years.

Q&A a day -365 Questions For Creative Exploration

As a young writer, I am constantly searching for ways to improve my writing style and creativity. This book has definitely helped me with that, and more. Each day, it gives you a different writing prompt. Some are a bit more challenging than others, but all of them are extremely unique and creative -and funny! Oh, my gosh, some are good. Like, really, really good!



Here's a few snippets:

"God Bless You"



Stand up for what you believe in, even if you are standing alone.” –Unknown.

Where I work, I am constantly serving and dealing with people. Some are friendly regulars, who my coworkers and I have developed a kind of relationship with –however small, or even, insignificant they may be. Of course, there are also the busybodies, who can’t even conjure up a thank-you, or return a simple greeting. But, it is something that we soon learn to expect. After all, they come to get food, not practice etiquette! And so, with the exception of a few familiar faces, most of our customers are, I guess you could call, “average.” You soon get used to the cranky mother with the bratty kids, or the teen who can’t speak up to save his life, or even the finicky

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag: Blackbeard: The Lost Journal -Christie Golden


I fell in love with this book long before I even opened it! I love the authentic look and feel of the cover, and just the fact that it was about Blackbeard had me drooling over it.

 Edward "Blackbeard" Thatch (aka: Teach) was born around 1680, and believed to be born in Bristol, England.
  He has a reputation of being the most fearsome pirate who ever lived, and with good reason: tales of his vicious

NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo: aka; National Novel Writing Month. A time where thousands of writers across the globe partake in the challenge of writing a novel... in one month.
 50,000 words is their goal -1,667 words a day.



 I'll admit, even I haven't participated in this challenge yet, and I've been writing for three years! I've been doing enough research and thinking it over that I might try it next year, and see how I do then. Hopefully my days won't consist of banging my head against the wall in utter humiliation... 😂

 So, how do they do it?

Ten Things You Probably Don't Know About Me



1. I am a freakishly relentless stalker. Not that kind that hides
in your bushes as you walk to your car in the morning. No, nothing like that... I stalk people

Pop Manga Coloring Book -Book Review

Anyone who knows me well enough definitely knows how much I enjoy art. I could spend all day in an art museum and not get bored, seriously (just ask my mom). And I love to draw and paint. Which is why I appreciate books that make you the artist. Pop Manga Coloring Book by Camilla d'Errico does just that.
