do you have any advice for aspiring writers?

Invest in a decent desk chair. Seriously, back problems from bad posture are the worst, and usually reoccurring once they start.

Stay hydrated! I know most of us love our caffeine, but try and drink some water too. Nothing kills a writing stint quite like a dehydration headache.

Go outside every once in a while. It’s good for you, trust me. Plus listening to strangers talking can go miles to helping write believable dialogue.

Eat and sleep. You only get one body, so make sure you fuel it up! Without the meat-suit, there is no writer, and without the writer, there is no story.

Write. Edit. Rewrite. Rewrite again. You’ll know when it’s ready.

Trust your own judgement.

/i am not your friend/

i am not your friend

i crept through your skin while you slept

when you stirred i held very very

still

until your breathing returned to its regular static hum

i infiltrated your mind while you wept

the only sounds i could hear

the pounding of your stranded heart

your brittle teeth clattering like porcelain plates in a flimsy cabinet

i swore i’d be careful

but you cracked under my grip

and the shards of your existence slipped right through my fingers
