Frustration and Determination

Couldn’t think of anything to write. Again. But I really didn’t feel like going for yet another post entirely devoted to how I can’t think of anything. Again. So I turned to my old trusted haiku. Always does the trick, it seems…


The day comes and goes
Once more inspiration sleeps
Words refuse to rise

 As gears grind, teeth gnash
While weary sighs fill the room
The mind draws a blank

Ah, just leave it be
Tomorrow’s another day
The call seems tempting

Swiftly shrug it off
Recognizing the Siren
Herald of the end

Resisting the pull
Amidst rising frustration
A friend offers aid

Unwavering guide
Always the answer in hand
Revealing the path

And clarity comes
Slowly mind’s mists fade away
Finally at peace


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
