Ji Hye Park in Noir Et Blanc for Vogue Korea January 2013

You are made
out of comets
and stars.

Do not surround
yourself with those
that treat you like
dirt and dust.

Bless you guys.

I’m tearing up all over again because I’m wondering what I did to have such nice people around me. <3

I am in a quite miserable, teary mood tonight.

If anyone could tell me something nice or something I should look forward to, please, I’d appreciate it. I’m dipping low.

So my friend convinced me to install Snapchat.

Now what?

How do I do this thing?

You can be a plotter, or a pantser. You can be neither, or a blend of both. There is nothing wrong with you. Every writer has their own way that works. If someone else’s process doesn’t work for you, don’t waste time trying to cut yourself into that square, or hate yourself or it. Move on, keep experimenting, and believe in your own mind.
