Writer of software and words. TheOddestBox.com
Don’t get distracted by the social media sideshow and time suck that can swallow your day. Unplug from the Internet before moments get lost in the fog of frivolous trappings.
The difference between a writer and a someone that writes is that a writer will identify the story within an issue and search for someone to tie that story to.
In my chest, on my red parted lips,
pumps blood unenriched,
words unspoken, unwritten.
All I have are sighs
and the comfort of night.

As a writer, it’s your job to save readers through your words.6
No words should be left unspoken or unwritten no matter how slow you get them out.
Find your inspiration where you can. In songs, in poetry, in art, in the smile of a baby, in the tears of a child, in holding the hand of a stranger at the end of their journey, in learning to remember, in learning to let go.
Because writing forces you to take a break from the madness and think things through before you write them down.
They do it for connection — not for commerce.
