My boyfriend and I have been together for about 2 years. It’s been an interesting ride, but a lovely one. For us starting off as unexpectedly as we did (a story for another time), we have a good amount in common. ….But we do have plenty of differences. For example, he’s an avid gamer whereas I’ve only touched “Bejeweled” and “Dead or Alive 2”. He’s most comfortable in nature and the woods while I love the hustle and bustle of the city. He likes the simple things while I aim for the ornate.
…Oh, and he’s a White American and I’m a Black Ghanaian-American.
I wrote a thing! Check it out!
So, for the past 2 weeks, I’ve been revamping and adding an ending to this Christmas play I wrote, in hopes that it’ll get performed this December. Listening to the soundtrack I picked out while thinking makes me wish it was snowing already.
I would love to read your writing!
Its up to you! Do what you feel!
PUT IT ON HERE NOWWWWWWWAAAAAAH!
So you guys are actually really overwhelming (in a brilliantly good way)
So here’s my game plan: I’ll post my writing on here. BUT, it will be reblogged from a tumblr I will make exclusively dedicated to my writing. Mostly because I want stuff I write to be easy to find and not lost in reblogs. so as soon as i can figure out a name for the new blog, it’s gonna happen. Your support is amazing; thanks! ^_^
So, I’ve been thinking; I originally started this tumblr some two odd years ago so I could practice writing. As you can see, I have drifted from that. But I want to wriiiiiiiiiiite, and I hate that I’m keeping it to myself.
Question for my followers: Would you be interested if I posted some short stories, editorial writing, and other written works on here? (or should I just make a new tumblr?)
read once all the way through, then read it excluding the words in parentheses, and then read only the words in parentheses.
Writer Chinua Achebe of Nigeria died this week at 82. Achebe wrote novels (including “Things Fall Apart”) as well as essays and poetry, most if not all of which touched on his homeland (especially issues of colonization, power and culture).
I love his response, in an interview with Paris Review, as to why he did not teach creative writing:
Well, I don’t know how it’s done. I mean it. I really don’t know. The only thing I can say for it is that it provides work for writers. Don’t laugh! It’s very important. I think it’s very important for writers who need something else to do, especially in these precarious times. Many writers can’t make a living. So to be able to teach how to write is valuable to them. But I don’t really know about its value to the student. I don’t mean it’s useless. But I wouldn’t have wanted anyone to teach me how to write. That’s my own taste. I prefer to stumble on it. I prefer to go on trying all kinds of things, not to be told, This is the way it is done.
