Still alive...

Greetings everyone!

I'm still around, it's just that I'm busy with university work. The school year is coming to an end, projects have to be turned in, exams are taking place... etc. It's let's see how much stress a human being can cope with- time!

Anyhow, my creative side is cruel and it decides to play with me when I don't have time to give it wings. By nature, I'm a very musical person (going around without my mp3 is as if they'd cut out one of my limbs. I drive my sister insane by my a cappella singing around the house), therefore, it's not the first time that music helps inspire my writing. However, lately 2 out of 3 songs I hear brings an image to my mind and opens up a world of possibilities for a future story. It's unnerving because I simply can't stop and explore the prospect like I'd like to.

I'm resisting the urge to write, but that doesn't mean I can't edit and do a little something here and there (you'll see what I mean next week, hehehe).

Anyways, speaking of music, this song has just been beckoning me to go and give pure fantasy writing another try...

maybe I will... once I finish my exams. We'll see...

Question is, How do you feel about music? Is it part of who you are? of your day to day? Does it inspire you?


  1. I know exactly how you feel about the whole not having time to do anything creative due to exams... Luckily I finished at the end of April and I've been happily working on my novel ever since. No worries, you'll make it through!

  2. Music was THE biggest inspiration for my angel book. When you read it, you'll see why! <3

  3. @ Kat: Lucky you! You finish so early in the year. Here in Spain we don't finish until the end of June! Thanks for the encouragement.

    @ C. I look forward to reading your book...damn exams, I want to finish already! ><


I adore comments! Don't be shy and tell me your thoughts.
