A Quick Update

posted in: Article | 2

A lot has happened since my last post. I started a new grade at a new school, where I only attended four days out of two weeks, because nothing was happening. I also discovered a lot, about people, about myself and about pursuing hobbies. One of my hobbies, as a reader of this (magnificent) blog would know, is writing. I write a lot about writing, so this blog’s becoming a writing blog. So meta.

Is So Meta Even This Acronym

I’ve been very active on my twitter page, and reasonably active on my tumblr, where I share things that I like along with my own creations. It’s good to know that there are people who share the same taste in different media as I do. Most of them are girls.

I’m currently half-heartedly working on a writing project. It’s mostly like short stories, with a bit of autobiographical influences and some analogies.

A small excerpt:

The laughter burst out like a trapped parrot in a cage, and he looked at her, who gifted him back a rare, fleeting, beautiful grin, complete with eyes and everything. The sort of smiles people could only wish to incite on someone’s face, the type that makes you question the steadiness of the marble floor along with the need for seasons.

Doesn’t say much, but nevertheless, it’s difficult to write things when all you do is sleep and eat and use reddit from your bedroom. The words or ideas that fill my head are eventually converted into these stories. I have a different outlet for them now, aside from this blog. Do expect posts soon enough, though, because I can’t go long without creating something, and now that my guitar skills have diminished sufficiently like a jeweler’s eyesight, I can atleast use half a heart and rub it on my keyboard to create words that makes sense.

I’ll be back, soon.

    Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't read at all. I mean, how would have such a wonderful vocabulary and such a mellifluous turn of phrase otherwise?
