Let go your grievances. Let go your lust for proof. Over and over ask yourself “What am I doing here?” Trust

that you know without over thinking, what is okay. Get comfortable with your discomfort but be wise around pain.

I need to speak out, communicate, own my voice. 

Writing has always been a passion. I was lucky  enough to have a short story published in 2013 by  Lazy Gramophone. I also used to write an artist’s blog for Run-riot.com. I found both of these opportunities hugely r...
