Sort of like people that are organised and productive … Continue reading Why I started writing daily todo lists?
What’s it like?
I committed myself to writing and sharing it on this blog over 3 years ago. Sometimes it's easy but other times it feels difficult to do. Sometimes I want to write about the world or social media and other times I want to share what I've learnt about myself through self-exploration. The personal posts come … Continue reading What’s it like?
Debunking myths about writers
There is this idea about writers, infact it applies to creatives in general.

Why you’re not inspired to write
Often when it comes to periods where I'm less inspired to write, the problem has nothing to do with writing. For example, if you're busy and overwhelmed throughout the day, when it comes to sitting down to write in the evening it's difficult. It's not that you're not inspired but instead that your mind is … Continue reading Why you’re not inspired to write

The power of words
As a writer, when it comes to the written word I think it holds a lot of value. However, I have to admit that when it comes to communication, the written word doesn't always come out on top. In a back and forth exchange, it's easy to miss the tone or intention of the words … Continue reading The power of words
