“today is the first day of the rest of our lives”
i don’t remember who said it but i think it fits.

writting is an outlet that i use to express myself,
so many people will say it is a useless skill
because it won’t get you anywhere in life.
but it isn’t.
writting is the only way to keep your head on straight
while spinning in the whirl pool of life.
writting is the only way to vent what’s inside
while keeping it inside.
writting is the only way to be yourself
while standing side by side with conformists.
writting isn’t just a passion,
or a skill,
it’s a way of life.

A short lady with chocolate brown hair and six ear peircings starts asking me questions. And I answer them as best I can. / “Have you taken an…

Experiancist

Some people have a style that defines how they write, that makes the stylists. Others are what I call experiancists, people who write from experiance (duh). I just realized the other day that I am an experiancist. Most of my work comes from something that has happened to me that motivates me to write. Some of my best work comes from the worst experiance of my life so far. But it helped me to prod…
