In response to 10 Ways To Find Creative Inspiration When You're Stuck In A Rut

As a creative individual, you may sometimes find it hard to get that inspiration you crave, or maybe you struggle with too many ideas!

A top tip is to write everything down, no matter how silly it sounds.

As a writer, I've had great ideas come into my head at silly times in the morning - normally 2 or 3am. I tell myself I'll remember it and write it down the next morning... And I don't. That is one of my biggest regrets.

It is normally the same with poems too. I'll think of a poem idea, but then I'll write the poem in my mind. I think it's so good that I'll never forget it, but after a sleep - I do forget it. The idea is lost in my sleep, never to be seen again.

I definitely learnt the hard way. It sucks thinking of all the great ideas I've probably lost to sleep.

Phones are a godsend for poets and writers in today's age! I officially no longer take my little ideas I get for granted. Everything is written down, even if it's something I don't understand at first. It's jotted down in my notes.

As a poet, I tend to keep a journal too. This journal is full of poetry. Because, as good as it is to have technology, you can never really beat good pen and paper. It still is one of my favourite ways to craft a poem. It almost seems way more personal to an extent.

Being a creative mind is a blessing, as much as it is a curse. Late night writing, thinking of ideas in the dead of night? It's all part of being a creative person.

Generating fun ideas is always rewarding - but now I always make sure I write them down!

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
