I started writing 

But I hated how it sound 

So I stopped right there 


The author's comments:

I guess this is just about how sometimes when I start to write, I just can't really get into a rhythm and it doesn't sound like I want it to. That's the true frustration of writing for me.

That sounds really cool, thanks for the tip SparrowSun! The squirrel queen sounds epic, I would love to check it out if you ever post it or publish it.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)
And the words I say most often: "Where was I?"
"I just switched 50 things to anonymus and it doesnt even make a diff- why was i writing this again? where was i? hm.... oh well."

i have a doc full of pictures that fix my writers block.
right now I'm writing a short story about a squirrel queen destroying humans because of one(its not as weird a picture as it sounds I swear)

When people first meet me, they think I'm really shy, but by the time they get to know me they wonder how the illusion of shyness ever came around!

This is so relatable 😭 well done
