Life Hacks to Combat Hoarding

Hoarding. We all do it-to a certain extent.Β I have way too much stuff, so much that it stresses me out. When I went to Australia I thought I only brought the bare minimum. After spending five months there I noticed that even that was too much. A lot of the things I brought only sat neglected in a corner, unused even though they had made the cut to journey across the world.

Book Review: The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

One of the best books I have ever read. It may have just become my favourite, more than that, it made me realize that I never had a favourite before. Now, if somebody asked me what my favourite book is I wouldn’t have to think about it; it would flow out of me instantly: “The Bell Jar“.

I guess I should have been excited the way most of the other girls were, but I couldn’t get myself to react. I felt very still and very empty, the way the eye of a tornado must feel, moving dully along in the middle of the surrounding hullabaloo.

WPC: Now

For me, being present in the “now” is somewhat difficult. Its not that I’m always thinking about the past or the present, but I am often daydreaming or thinking about something other than what is happening. This can create a lot of unneeded stress and anxiety, and sometimes exhaustion. I’ve thought so much before that I’ve been to the point where I just didn’t want to think any more, but I didn’t know how. Until something miraculous happened.Β Read More »

What We Can Learn From the Classics – Paradise Lost by John Milton (Modern Library Edition)

paradise lost

I think one of the most important things about classic works of literature is what we, as writers, can learn from them. It might seem strange to think that we could find writing advice in a work of art published circa the Shakespeare age (or in this case a few decades after). But Milton’s poetry, and so many other classic works of literature, is an extravagant demonstration of the beautiful and wondrous intricacies of the English language.

7 Ways to find your character’s quirk

quirk

A quirk is a strange behaviour that someone does, that is typically unique to that person. For example, I always get the hiccups when I eat carrots. The funny thing is I looked it up and there are actually quite a few people who get this, enough that one woman even made a support group for people who get the hiccups from eating carrots so that they would not feel so alone (the page has since been taken down unfortunately). So a quirk doesn’t have to be 100% unique, but at least unique enough that it is strange to most people.
