Being a writer

Recently, I been getting ideas and inspirations for my stories.

Eventhough the timing is bad because I get these ideas at work, I am not the type of person who reject ideas.

My biggest fear as a writer has always been running out of ideas.

So whenever, I have a steady stream of ideas, I am very happy.

I been trying to get my ideas out.

It's hard to explain my creative process as a writer.

My stories are usually fueled by the characters. So my characters are very important to me.

My characters are usually born from emotions.

So my inspiration are usually from emotions. I get these emotions randomly. Sometimes through songs, sometimes random thoughts or books or movies.

I usually have to process these emotions. Put them into a character or see which emotion fit which character.
Then, from that, the characters will react to the emotions, creating the scenes. So for my stories, it is completely fueled by emotions.

I know it sounds complicated. But that's my process for creating my stories.

But if you were to ask me where exactly I get my ideas for my stories, I would say I don't know.

I would say, somehow, they just come to me. I won't even dare say they are completely my ideas because I feel like my ideas came from the universe.

They aren't exactly mine.

It's like having children.

You made them. Yes. 
But they don't belong to you.

They are their own person and you are a proud parent.

And being a writer is the same thing.

You are proud of your characters but I am aware I don't own them. They are alive and they will do what ever the hell they want.

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.

Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive

Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …

Growing up, closure and an interview.

I guess it's time I grow up. When high school is over, I have to grow up, be a mature and a responsible little young lady.
There's alot of things I have to learn.

To be honest, I'm a little afraid of leaving graduating from high school.
I mean, I've been going to school for years. And the thought that it will finally end is a relief but also a little frightening.

But it's a new chapter in life. Everyone goes through it. So yea, I'm afraid but excited at the same time. There's so much to do after the graduating. College, driver licence & etc...

I guess I'll miss high school a little. Never thought it would end...but yea, it will soon enough.

Before I left high school, I need some closure. I mean, I made some friends & lost some friends. I do have some regrets. I was such an idiot and arrogant ass last time.
So yea, before high school end, I need to send some letters to the few people I hurt.

But I guess, that's high school. You make a hell lot of…
