WritingRelatedFridays: Being told to ‘Man up’

Heyyyy, all you lovely people. How are you doing? I am doing quite well actually. I am just getting used to my au pair job. It has been about a week since I officially started working as the family’s au pair. Sometimes it can be both fun and frustrating at the same time. Oh well… Continue reading

WritingRelatedFridays: An inspirational quote (tip) for aspiring writers

Hello, everyone and good evening to you all. My Writing Related Fridays post is going to be especially short today. I just wanted to place this quote here for all my aspiring fellow poets, writers and bloggers out there. Read the quote below and please let it sink in:

“Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.”
– Barbara Kingsolver 

Even as a writer, I must keep this in mind as well. I believe that this is because once you try to figure out what you think someone might want to hear, you lose your originality and what makes you different from the rest.

Honestly, anyone can become a writer. It greatly depends on how much is their desire to write and what you have to offer.

 

WritingRelatedFridays: Women who dress a certain way are “Asking for it”

Hello, everyone! Having a great day? Me, too. 🙂

Apparently, there are some people claiming women who dress a certain way are “asking for it”.  I can never understand this whenever I hear people saying such things. They even have the nerve to say that when it is a young and innocent child being sexual abuse or accosted.

It does not matter whether a woman is fully clothed or not, they still get attacked and it is still her fault. It seems no matter what a woman wears or does it is always going to be her fault for: Continue reading

Valley of Tears

Bon Dia, readers! It just occurred to me that I have been posting less and less of my own poems and writing on my blog, although that was my initial intentions when I first created my blog. Well these things happen sometimes…

Anyway, today I just wanted to try something slightly different than usual, as you will see if you click on the link below. Today’s Writing Related Friday’s post is a short poem I completed a couple of weeks ago. It started with me writing only one sentence of the poem some months back, but at the time I could not think of anything else to write to complete it. I just did not know what else to write during that time. I can imagine that sort of thing could happen to the best of us.

However, I finally managed to complete the rest of the poem about a month ago which made me really happy and I have been wanted to share it with you all for a while now. If you do not mind could you also like and please let me know what you think of it? I would be more than happy to read your comments in the comment section below. Take care and have a nice day, until my next post. 🙂

Valley of Tears

In this world, I am quite lonely,

But I wonder if you would even care?

As I wallow in my sadness,

And wallow in my despair,

I do not ask for your pity,

That I would not be able to bear,

I only ask of you to please, don’t let me drown

In this never-ending valley of tears.
