Writers Update 2

In the last writers update, I mentioned I was signed up for writing workshops and had been slowly getting the handle of this writer/small business lifestyle. I have a lot going on behind the scenes in my personal life, yet I’ve managed to go to the workshops, earn certificates online and also get a bit further in my stories, so for that I’m proud. *pats self on back*

The past 6 months have been hectic. I’ve been enrolled in an online Creative Writing Specialization course and am less than a month away from earning the certificate. I have been working on renovating The Existentialist website which has been a challenge but I’m not giving up on it.

The Existentialist store is going to have a new look and I’ve been working on some new product ideas I hope to release soon. Here’s some of the designs for those products that I’ve been working on:

“Religion in a Nutshell”
KEWB 22’
“Consciousness”
KEWB 22’
“Mirage”
KEWB 22’
“Soul Searcher”
KEWB 22’

I’m pushing my vision to have these “one of a kind” original designs available in many different sizes and varieties. These card-stock style designs are bagged and sealed as originals. Personal choice of framing it or hanging it by string from the loop in the bag.

“Image of Man”
KEWB 22’

I know I haven’t posted in well over a month, which trust me, I don’t feel good about. I’m not going to be hard on myself though (at least try my best not to) because I am doing the best I can with all I’ve got going on. I have been drafting posts like crazy, just not publishing them for you to see. Call me crazy or lazy, but I think maybe I’ve just lost my confidence in myself and started caring about what people think all over again. It’s a never ending cycle of existentialism; recreating the meaning to (my) life through my experiences.

Image of Man Part 2 is just about ready to be published, stay tuned for that if you’re really into existentialism. Words of Wisdom by Alan Watts is also another post I have been working on. If you are more into the art that I’ve been working on rather than my writing, I am also open to commissions.

Feel free to contact me through my contact page if you have questions about commissioned art 🙂 stay rad

I am human, just like you. I have been around for 20 years and although it may not be a lot of time to some, it feels like I've been alive forever. To cope with all the things my life has given me; good and bad, I've always been a writer. Maybe I didn't know or necessarily want to be a writer, but I was always on the creative side, not really understanding how different I was from others; I'm really not that different from you. To this day I'm still eager to learn more about myself, to improve and grow amorphously. I want to use this fuel of constant self-discovery as the direct source of 'energy' that can create whatever I want it to, making writing for me a healthier coping mechanism than most I've tried in my lifetime. That being said, I believe that starting my blog, The Existentialist, (all thanks to Wordpress and Bluehost teams) I finally have the opportunity and creative outlet to unleash my passion for art; writing. The beginning is never easy, and it won't get much easier I am aware. I can only believe in myself and keep my expectations to a minimum; I like to believe I hold no expectations, but they seem unavoidable. To whoever reads this, I'm not one to care about views or reads, I won't encourage/pressure you to read my work because for me, the thrill really comes from just making a finished piece of work I'm happy with, regardless if it is read by others or not; judgement from others is what I've feared all my life. I can only encourage you to have an open mind as a reader and believe in me as much as I believe in myself to accumulate the courage to start showing my creative writing(art) to the world. Everybody creates things in their lifetime, I am just another one of those beings; whether you like it or not, nouns (persons, places and 'things') exist to teach us something about ourselves. There is always more to learn...
