Hi, I'm Elise. I'm 16, in Sixth Form and living (or I should hope that I'm alive) in the UK. I study English Literature, Sociology and Maths at A-Level, and I hope to go on to Oxford to study English.
This blog is largely for my original work as well as thoughts (which range from the museful to the hammer-like) and I really hope you enjoy. ♥ Everything here belongs to me, unless stated otherwise. But to be fair, why would you even want to steal it.
To see him in the back-ground
Or some-thing some-where, as if
My knowledge of —
My inside knowledge
Of that dumb infatuation
— an obsession
That has passed
Like a stream,
Bearing its way,
Finding its earthly grooves
And funk and vinyl and
Sick in Will Smith’s Mum’s house’s sink.
It used to be so high-end, bright,
Flowers and violet — now, short
Of violent — I could show you, I
I could show you all; show
As I write the world. Or,
As I try to shout in a quiet,
Map-of-my-brain (but inaccurate)
Sorta kinda way
…though, that belief
That thoughts are special…
I read them back — and they’re not.
I swear, that I tried.
I tried. I think.
Black and blue ink
On a screen, in a pixel
In the shades of our bruised blood,
I tense up my muscles to sculpt our mud;
I welcome you…sometimes…
Confused, but at least I admit it;
And it’s bad…
I admit but deny, I admit it…
ceata88 asked: Big tip for writer's I learned in my group when I had it! The main one I use is whenever you plan to stop writing for the day always end in the middle of a sentence. I know it sounds weird but that way when you open up the file again you have to finish the sentence which gets you into the flow. They also suggested editing the previous paragraph and making outlines. Also mood music helps me a ton. Sad music for sad scenes, romantic music, actiony music, etc.
"This house will become a shrine, and punks and skins and rastas will all gather round and hold their hands in sorrow for their fallen leader. And all the grown-ups will say, “But why are the kids crying?” And the kids will say, “Haven’t you heard? Rick is dead! The People’s Poet is dead!” RIP"
