Finding Inspiration in Other Dimensions

As I was sitting at a dining room table in an unfamiliar house in an unfamiliar city with an unfamiliar family that was my boyfriend’s, I realized something. Cultures connect the world. This is inspirational because there are other worlds out there that we don’t even realize are hidden within our own until we become part of them.

Language. La langue. Lingvo. Gengo.


La langue.


Unknown Object

That is the word language in the four languages that I can either speak proficiently, or am learning. English, French, Esperanto, and Japanese. I like to learn languages because I feel like it opens doors for me not only other countries, but also other worlds. You can visit a country without knowing their language, but you can’t truly know the country without knowing it.

Just Write

An anonymous quote I found read, “Today – I will. Tomorrow – I will. There is no muse. There is only me, and what I do or do not do.” I think this applies to writing in many ways. We always tell ourselves when and what we’re going to write, if you’re anything like myself. Also if you’re anything like myself, you know this doesn’t work. Any time I set aside a time for myself to write, I feel forced. I feel pressured, I feel like I can’t do it.

Irritation That Inspires

I feel myself writing the most when I’m not happy. I know this sounds crazy, but it is absolutely true. I write the most when I’m feeling sad, anxious, or even furious. The last thing I want to do when I’m happy is writing. I just feel like sometimes artwork doesn’t come out of happiness.
