The Wonder Of Written & Spoken Art

As we’re heading into another lockdown, I figured it was time to re-discover my love for books. I have many around the house, perhaps tomorrow I’ll have a look at a few and read them, chapter by chapter. Sounds good.

I also have plans to start work on another book project, I feel like I haven’t paid enough attention to poetry as of late. But in all fairness, life has been quite eventful, to say the least. We’ll see what else 2021 has in store for us.

Might look into subscribing to Audible or something too, I think audiobooks are a good way to pass the time, especially if you haven’t got the chance to read a physical copy.

Another thing I hope to listen more of: podcasts.

If I had a bit more self-esteem and didn’t dislike my voice so much, I am pretty sure I could start my own. Whilst writing, I often say all the words out loud, almost becoming a narrator in the process. That’s one of the many things I have found beneficial over the years.

What I also want to catch up on: Documentaries.

There’s many different ones, from crime to nature, the lighthearted subjects, to the more complex and in-depth. Honestly can’t get enough of them.

Health And Book Update: A Late Entry

A late entry but, I finally published and made my second poetry book public via the incredible self-publishing company Blurb, who actually congratulated me also, which I thought was so wonderful!

I’ve been meaning to update my blog, just never got around to it because I took some time to relax because of my wisdom tooth extraction. Recovery is going well! It’s been approximately 4 days and I feel great, there’s been no complications or symptoms which I am relieved about.

The best part about it is, no more excruciating migraines at night. Although today, I feel slightly light-headed, but it’s been a warm day also.

On the 13th, it was the third anniversary of my blog, DAYDREAM MADNESS, too! Can’t believe I’ve had it for this long now. The same day, it was actually a whole year since I bought my domain name; one of the best decisions I’ve made for my blog so far.

 

Getting my new book done was also a big relief, because I was behind schedule, and there’s two different book types; softcover and hardcover. Everyone knows the title of it by now, since it’s been spoken about on numerous occasions.

 

But yes, “A Cryptic Human Entity” was an amazing project to work on, creativity wise.

 

The encouragement and support from my closest friends has been wonderful, especially since it was the second anniversary of my grandmother’s passing on the 19th and all events have been clashing with that.

And it’s also my 23rd birthday this Sunday! Usually not too optimistic about it, but I’ll be at a music festival surrounded by incredible music and good vibes, so I can’t complain.

Growing older is perhaps a blessing and a curse; we’re basically ticking clocks, losing time as we speak. It’s an inevitable fate for us all, but life and loss affects us just as much. The point is, we should cherish each moment like we’re about to lose it all. And we shouldn’t take loved ones for granted either.

Writing Session #8

8th post already? Wow, I feel kind of proud for sticking to my writing schedule this far. I’m not the usual blogger who feels comfortable posting every day, out of fear that people might end up hating my blog, or disliking me in general. But, it’s been a nice change, yep.

Writing Session #3

Looking forward to Friday. I can kiss goodbye to pastel rosé hair and hello again to (hopefully) light blonde.

 

People often think I’m weird for constantly changing mine, but since the age of 17 or 18, when my first hair bleaching experience was, it opened my eyes to the many opportunities of personal change. Of course, foolish as I was, a lot of damage occurred that day.

But, as I’ve gotten older, I have found amazing products that I swear by for good hair health and colorful experimentation. We all have stuff that feels like it was made for us in mind.

Definitely can’t say no to vibrant & exciting color hues. Expressive introvert! That’s me…

For me, it’s another form of self-expression. Apart from writing poetry and having my personal blog, I’m also quite fond of cooking. A therapeutic release if I have a stressful day or long night.

What cheers me up the most, if I’m having a rough day, is pancakes. Found myself making a few earlier and they’re just too great! Best thing to add, definitely vanilla sugar.

 

Anyone who wonders what that is, it’s something they sell in Sweden, where I’m originally from.


Nothing better than a peaceful night to write. I’m hoping to make a start on my second book quite soon. Not going to rush any plans though. But, knowing you can do something is truly wonderful.

Changed my blog theme last night. It’s incredible how little changes can make your blog look more professional. As of right now, the blog is categorized as personal but hopefully later in this year, I’ll be able to upgrade it in some way; domain names are a vital part Continue reading “simplistic form”
