Daydreaming and procrastinating more than is healthy.

Writer's block and sleep deprivation are my constant companions.

Feedback really helps, people. Be brutally honest, please.

Reviews are greatly appreciated, but if they don't offer any criticism, they're not much use.

ashen lilac | writing streak: week 2 day 3

July 23, 2020



you're surrounded by people you love, and you're all laughing together. you feel the happiness bubbling up in your chest and ​it's beautiful, this moment. but then you remember that soon, you will all have to go your separate ways. you realise that these moments will soon become just memories, and you feel the happiness morph into sadness. you try to enjoy the moment while it lasts, but all you can think about is how much it'll hurt when it ends. it's a melancholy happiness and a happy melancholy; it's what ashen lilac is the colour of.
it's the third day of the streak and i finally came up with a name that i actually quite like.
