Food for Writing – High Fantasy

wf3

To prepare for writing of high fantasy, you need to have a full table meal. The lore of yore demands it so. And, it should be something that will make you reminisce of old days with each bite. Everything is in the service of that special, nostalgic kick, and of course, the ever-present magic of the world you’re about to build on your paper. This is why the dish consists of several parts, which includes meat, potatoes, and of course, cabbage salad. Sure, this particular recipe is not for vegetarians, but if you want to make a meatless version, just uses whichever substitute you like.

Reasons Why

This is going to be a bit of a rant. It’s been on my mind for a while, and now I think I’ve finally found the words of it. However, I cannot say what follows has a perfect essay structure. To be honest, it’s just going to be me spilling my thoughts and emotions on a virtual piece of paper, published in an online space which sometimes feels like clouds, puffed into the sky to stay there as long as we find them interesting.

Food for Writing – Literary Fiction

For writing literary fiction, I like to have something simple, yet powerful that will make me energetic and full. So, what feels best in situations like those is yogurt baked pasta cake. It’s simple to make, yet very satisfying. You might wonder why I didn’t give literary fiction something more wholesome or sophisticated perhaps. That’s because I truly think that literary fiction should be familiar, but at the same time, a bit heavy to digest until you get used to it, just like life this genre is supposed to depict. It’s simple to make, but accomplishes a lot once it’s ready to be served. Continue reading “Food for Writing – Literary Fiction”

Inspiration

Strangely enough, this old friend of mine, who kindly taught me how to type back in the day, brings out so much from me. Maybe it’s the vintage vibe, or nostalgia, or who knows what. But, as a writer, somehow, my thoughts don’t feel like they’re at home anywhere else, the ideas don’t breathe as easily, but in front of this chest of inspiration.

Wrote Myself Too Far Back

So, when I decided to become a writer, I didn’t realize I would have to start from the actual beginning. Back to basics, I guess.

Fresh Starts

My website is now basically empty, just as it was when I started it in the first place. It feels really liberating. The reason why I did it? Let’s just say that I had some time of introspection and I wanted a new beginning, a fresh start. There’s nothing like the sense of freedom, I can tell you that.

Recently, events, especially unpleasant ones, have been coming one after another and I’ve had just about enough of it. The faces of the environment that I’ve found myself in showed themselves to me, I’ve seen them all and I didn’t like any. So, I decided to move on. The people I’ve met along the way, I’m grateful I got a chance to interact with them. They’ve taught me both the good and the bad. But, most importantly, I learned to go on my own way.

So, I decided to start anew. The content is not going to be the same, because, honestly, I’ve changed, so my themes will take another form as well. Website and blog will include posts about different topics, some will be about writing, others will be just about getting through the day, and then, because I can’t really stop myself, there will be a few of highly ideological and ideally-oriented ones. Also, I’m planning on starting a podcast about reading and writing. You’re all welcome to join me on this new journey that I’m taking.
