The Reality of Freelance Writing

I guess I’m living the dream right now. After I left my boring office job four months ago,  I’ve been spending my time travelling the world. I’ve been to Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Mexico and Amsterdam and am currently planning a trip to Romania and another trip from New York to California. This is what I have wanted to do ever since I can remember, and I now have the perfect job to go alongside it. I don’t have to choose between this job and travelling because I can work whilst travelling.

Poetic Love

She fell in love with my words. I couldn’t compete. My stories, poetic flow, and ability to ignite emotion in others held her a captive to my craft. My words are my catalyst; the perfect muse to manipulate her mind, make her fall in love, with me; if she only knew of my intentions. The way I can press ink to paper made me worth something. In her world, she saw my beautiful letters in-coherence, stories of love, and fictional tales of our future beyond the page before she spoke real words to me. Poetry can help land a dream girl, a beautiful one too; I’m different; most guys don’t write. And she’ll adore me for my talent, until she realizes, my ink speaks of non-fiction, and I’m more than an emotion-soaked white blue-lined page on the inside.

#ReadWomen December

Greetings, everyone! So, I’ve decided to take part in #ReadWomen December. This is something I just found out about today, and am very excited about. The gist is that for a month, readers have decided to deck out their reading lists with female authors – some choosing to read female authors only for December, others vowing to include more women writers than they usually read. For more information, the twitter hashtag has been a great resource for me. So in honor of celebrating women’s voices, I thought I’d share some of my favorite books by female authors, as well as a few books on my own #ReadWomen reading list.

I Think I’ve Sold My Soul To Michael Schur…

There’s a chance you may not know who Michael Schur is, and that’s okay. I don’t expect you to. He’s the mastermind behind shows like The Office [US] (writer), Parks And Recreation (creator/producer/writer), and more recently, Brooklyn Nine-Nine (creator/producer). Parks And Rec is one of my favourite shows ever, and so many times, I’ve considered writing a post on why it’s amazing and why you should all watch it right away, but now I have an excuse to do so as I’ve come to terms with the fact that Michael Schur can make anything and I will watch it. He was also an SNL writer for a few years and played Dwight’s cousin Mose in The Office. Though he didn’t make these shows alone, he played a big part in their existence and for that, I am a huge fan! Parks And Recreation was my first Schur watch. I had seen pictures/gifs of the show and had a few days off last December, so I gave it a go and fell in love. It’s…
