Three Small Words

How I feel; three small words I ask myself too much, and as for everyone else around me, perhaps not enough. I feel as if I've lived my entire life making other people happy, pointlessly documenting my anguish, pain, disappointment, and dissatisfaction of a wasted life in a books written pages.

Margaret Atwood On Writing Tips

Take a pencil to write with on aeroplanes. Pens leak. But if the pencil breaks, you can’t sharpen it on the plane, because you can’t take knives with you. Therefore: take two pencils. If both pencils break, you can do a rough sharpening job with a nail file of the metal or glass type. Take something to write on. Paper is good. In a pinch, pieces of wood or your arm will do. If you’re using a computer, always safeguard new text with a ­memory stick. Do back exercises. Pain is distracting. Hold the reader’s attention. (This is likely to work better if you can hold your own.)...

Poisoned By Fairy Tales

My father died in February of 2013. I was 33 years old. There are so many things still left unsaid. So many things I wanted to ask my father. And yet, with each passing year, it seems that there are more and more questions left unanswered. I decided a long time ago that I would not be having children of my own, for various reasons, despite the fact that I know I would be a fantastic parent. Perhaps it all goes back to my childhood and all the things that went wrong. I don't know for sure. One thing remains certain. As children, we are poisoned by fairy tales, and the concept...

Why was I chosen to be everyones confidant? For the purposes of this article, no names will be mentioned, only very obscure references to actual occurrences.

Quest To Create Iconic Photography

Quest To Create Iconic Photography

I have always felt a strong desire, a compulsion, a quest to create iconic photography. A recent visit to an art gallery, I viewed an exhibit of Dorothea Lange's iconic photography, which only served to fuel my desire. I have spent the majority of my time searching for that one epic photograph, and although I have come close, I still have not yet found what I am searching for, although I have a very good concept of what I wish to capture, if I could only capture it.
