The process

When reading a book, or looking at a painting, or listening to music, we forget that it is a process. We only see the finished product, the results of a lot of changes, rewrites, hours spent staring at it and not knowing what now, parts of it thrown away and then put back in again. … Continue reading The process

Training my patience

I cycled twenty kilometres today, just to pick up Too Good To Go magic box. And it was quite an easy ride, even though I had wind in my face on the way there. Half a year ago I would come home and complain how hard it was and how tired I was. But today … Continue reading Training my patience

Feeling alive

I haven't felt like that for a long time. Alive, content, calm, not wishing to be someone else or somewhere else, even though I'm still not having everything I need. It took me a while to get to this place. First, I left the job that was bad for me. It broke my heart, because … Continue reading Feeling alive

Is algorithm killing our creativity?

People often say that Instagram is such a creative medium, but I have some doubts about it. I mean, can we say that about some medium only because many creatives are using it to showcase their work? It may be a good medium for creatives, but I wouldn't call it creative. For me Instagram is … Continue reading Is algorithm killing our creativity?

Let’s be honest: I don’t create only for myself

There it was again, "Remember that you're not creating for an audience, you're creating for yourself." You should hear me grind my teeth when I've read this. That's such a bullshit. If you're putting your work out there to be seen, you're not creating only for yourself. And there's no shame in this. You should … Continue reading Let’s be honest: I don’t create only for myself

Sharing my little stories

In Little Stories of Your Life, Laura Pashby guides us gently through different ways of telling stories, using pictures and/or words. While reading I had a feeling that a friend was quietly telling me what she’s learned and how she does it.For me this book was a reminder of who I am. And even though … Continue reading Sharing my little stories

Little Stories of Your Life

I’ve started reading Little Stories of Your Life by Laura Pashby the other day and it reminded me that this is exactly what I always wanted to do and was doing for a long time, here and on my Instagram. Sharing little stories of my life, writing about things that caught my attention, simply capturing … Continue reading Little Stories of Your Life

Buy me a coffee (or a book actually)

I broke my e-reader last night. I fell asleep as I was reading and I was woken up by the e-reader hitting the floor. At this time I thought it was fine, but this morning it turned out it wasn't. I can't buy a new one at the moment, because not earning any money means … Continue reading Buy me a coffee (or a book actually)

Finishing things

It's often hard to keep going, to bring a project to the end. Especially when you keep some stories inside you, things you've heard in your childhood or teenage years. Mine is 'she's talented, but lazy', meaning that I'll never reach my potential, that I'll never be able to be who I could become. That … Continue reading Finishing things

Getting back to writing

Not writing, not blogging, not being who I want to be, again. I wish I could say that life gets in the way, but it's not that. I think that the only thing that gets in the way is myself. I've written about it in my newsletter yesterday and the more I think about it, … Continue reading Getting back to writing
