Written Refinement | Approaching Criticism On Past Posts

I began by revisiting one of my past blog posts and reading it through with criticism. It was little to no surprise that the year old post made me chuckle. Altruism, as the title goes, was the purpose of the message. However, the message itself leaves the reader confused with uninterpreted details and rhetorical questions. … Continue reading Written Refinement | Approaching Criticism On Past Posts

To Myself

It’s way too easy to tell others your intentions. You can be completely honest about what you want to do and still not do it. This is your dilemma; you want to tell stories but haven’t put in effort. You don’t even read books or research what is important in storytelling. The ideas and imagery … Continue reading To Myself

College Day 208 – A Momentary End

(April 21, Thursday) As late as this post is, I finally generated the courage to type it out. When I look back and remember that day I inevitably feel the same feeling that I had in anticipation for my ride to the airport.

The professor understood where he was coming from, yet … Continue reading College Day 193 – Say What You Want

College Day 188 – Fiction And Dreams

(April 1, Friday) I spent a good hour and more talking with my good friend I met online 3ish years ago. He was eager to talk about the fictional story he was preparing and I got in the mood to talk. I shared with him the book that I read called The First Five Pages by Noah … Continue reading College Day 188 – Fiction And Dreams

College Day 186 – Thought Block

(March 30, Wednesday) Finally the day came when I would have one of my poems critiqued. To my surprise, I actually haven't shared it on my blog at all. However, the rhyming scheme was aabb / ccdd / eeff. That was probably the main concern (the forced rhyme) apart from the "distracting" image that I … Continue reading College Day 186 – Thought Block
