Sometimes I’m tired of knocking on doors

Sometimes I feel tired. Tired of fighting, of trying to convince people that I know what I'm doing, that I know what I want. Those are the moments when I wish that everything was easy, that work proposal fell into my lap, that someone would e-mail me and say 'Hey, would you please write/translate/edit this … Continue reading Sometimes I’m tired of knocking on doors

Birthday writing, or day 4 of #100daysofwriting

Today is my birthday and writing today felt actually extra good. It was like I was giving myself a present by doing the work, writing, looking for the story. Taking a break is easy, one day wouldn't hurt probably, but I also know how easily one day turns into two, then three and before you … Continue reading Birthday writing, or day 4 of #100daysofwriting

Where my ideas live

I have so many ideas, for the blog, for my Instagram, even for YouTube channel or podcast I don't have. But I don't follow up on them. I write them down, or not, and that's where they live.

Or at least that's what I'm going for, but I might fail at it, just like Vivian Lee. https://twitter.com/vivianwmlee/status/1029010647223357440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw I've got this idea from Jia … Continue reading Going for it

How much do you want it?

If you say you want to read more and then you binge watch series for hours, what are you actually saying? When you say you want to write and then never set a pen to paper (or fingers to the keyboard), what are you actually saying? For me you’re saying that you don’t really want … Continue reading How much do you want it?
