"Same here. And instead of studying I wrote a poem and blog post about it. It seemed to have tied into a wide range of things I had been thinking about prior to reading it - well not counting all the deathy stuff and I was really happy I forfeited my…"

What I've Learned From Wittgenstein

So apparently, even though the rest of us normal humans go around thinking normal things like: "Gee, wonder if I should go buy

some new vegetables, this stuff in the fridge is rotten..."

Philosophers run around thinking: "What if none of this is real?

How do I know I'm not…

Unruly Novel Child

Okay. So it turns out I'm writing a trilogy.

I wrote a novel. I was so happy with it. It had three parts and lots of action and likable characters and a nice concept. Then it decided to become a brat. After I spent all my time nursing it, making it presentable, I leave it alone for a second and then I come back and all of a sudden it's making demands.



-Novel-"Hey, Aleya, I was just thinking... since I'm a three part novel... why don't you flesh things out a bit and make me into… Continue

Another Poem

I'm not a poet or anything but since the first went over well I decided to put up this second one as well. I wrote it a couple years back within a writing workshop that I assisted after Hurricane Dean. Had some help with it but I quite like the outcome:



Instinct A slow breath brushes the landscape

making animals and vegetation quiver

through the sixth sense we humans lack.

Nature knows what the village doesn’t;

a storm is approaching.

Old Poem

[Just found this and thought it would be a shame to lose it when I move. It really speaks to the whole writing process and how an idea gets messed up as you try to express it and it's always at its best in your head.]





Words




There are no words to express

The things inside my head

Perhaps this pen’s point’s too fine

Perhaps there’s too much on my mind…



Out there I see a world of wonder

These shutters capture as they… Continue

Hello!
Ok i am going to look like a total creeper but i noticed that you posted on someone elses profile that you were moving to Ghent and i see that you live in Belgium, so did you move to Ghent? if so do you like it there? my husband and I are from Canada and possibly moving to Ghent in a few months and i would love to know of some nerdfighters in the area!! any tips for a couple of new comers? do you speak Flemish? are there a lot of English speaking people there?

Thanks so much for your comment! I do agree with what you said about continuing to write - I think that pretty much anything improves the more you do it.

Hi! I reeeally loved that sci-fi thing! It was really good. I don't usually read on the computer (I don't know why) But that's one of the only ones I actually payed atention to! I think I spelled attention wrong...

Hey, you seem really cool. Still looking for a pen pal? My info is on page 34 on the pen pal discussion. I'm starting college life next year too, so I think it would be fun to talk to someone adjusting to that life, though you're certainly going MUCH farther from home than I am.
Let me know if you want to be pals!! :)

hey I already have two pen pals so if you want to find someone who doesn't already have a pen pal I'd understand. But I wouldn't mind another pen pal. It is always fun to meet new nerdfighters. My email is manicpixiedreamgurl@gmail.com.
