For the writers! 📖

writing living breathing

pencil shavings join
the flakes of rubber
crumpled pages
pieces flying
through the air

grunts and groans
come from her
tired mouth
fighting with the
words in her head

the words that don’t
match what she
puts down on paper
when it sounded perfect
inside her head

and page after page
she scratches out
hoping that
if she writes enough
she’ll make sense of the clutter

A gorgeous picture from one of my favourite blogs! 📷

Life in a Photograph

And now for something completely different! 😀 haha but not really. I wanted to create a photomanipulation in colour and after a few tries i managed to create this one!
I added a few textures and photos of stars and added movement to the edges of the photo to give the impression that we’re flying through space! 🙂
Yep this one is very colourful!! 🙂

Do you like it? 😀

Voting: Round 2 of The Book Awards 2015

Voting is open for The Writing Hufflepuff’s book awards!

The Writing Hufflepuff

Find out here what The Book Awards are and click here to see the list of all the nominees.

Warning: There will be spoilers!

So I figured out what I did wrong with the poll yesterday. It’s very stupid and it basically comes down to me being an idiot. Anyway, I figured it out and now it’s time to vote!

Like I explained in yesterday’s post, this round is only for categories with more than five nominees. If a nominee has been nominated more than once, like Harry Potter being nominated nine times for Best Book Series, it automatically goes to round 3. This means that some categories have five spots, others, like Best Male Author, have two. The nominees with the most votes go through to the next round. I hope everything is clear, and if not, do not hesitate to ask!

I don’t know why Best…

Love is overrated and so are you

I thought this was a wise outlook on love, so I thought I’d share it 💕

I cannot fathom why we wouldn’t mind or even crave the feeling of having someone else trace a blade around our lips like a stencil, burn cigarette holes into the thin lining of our skin or bleed us out on sterile tiles in blossoming scarlet stains. We degrade and dehumanize ourselves for the other half, laying bare our souls for them to grind our bones to grainy powder – all for one simple reason. We want to matter. We’re not content with being just another face in the sea of the faceless. We need to cling on to an anchor, even if its jagged edges splices us into two. The universe, as it appears, owes us that much, and if love can achieve that purpose of filling the cavernous pits in our hearts, so…

Seeing “The weight of One Self”

Another Voice

"The weight of One Self" - marble sculpture of height 2.7m by artists Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, in Lyon, France. “The weight of One Self” – sculpture of height 2.7m by artists Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, in Lyon, France.

I look at my limp
body in my arms and I
wonder who saved whom.
I can only hold
the weight of my own conscience,
talk the truth I know.
Never a hero
was made by saving himself-
Completely untrue.
