Advice for Lost and Lonely Souls

If you ever feel sad turn your head to the sea;
Feel the morning breeze lace through your hair
Let problems slip like sand through open palms
And let the ocean’s cool, frothy fingertips
Caress your cheek and calmly, gently,
Carry your troubles away from shore.
If you ever feel lost bury your head in a book;
Fill your nose with the musty scent of yellowed pages,
Run your fingers along loved and weathered spines,
And swim deep down in a pool of words
To lands where adventure awaits you,
And lets you disappear.
If you ever feel empty fill your head with music;
Feel the melodies cascade across your bruised skin,
Let sweet serenades seal the cracks within your soul
And follow those soft, hopeful rhythms
With eyes closed and ears wide open;
Teach your heart to beat again.

New Feature- Tuesday’s Inspiration

Hi guys, I’d just like to pop in with another announcement for you all. Recently, I’ve been thinking of different ways I could make this blog a little better and also let it be helpful for other writers out there instead of just showcasing my own work all the time. Firstly, I’ve introduced the Feedback page, and now I’m introducing something brand new- Tuesday’s Inspiration. What is this magical thing I hear you ask?

Inspiration. Because what writer doesn’t need a bit of a spark on a Tuesday afternoon?

Tuesday to me has always been a day overshadowed by the rest. Monday is the daunting, dull start to the week that trudges slowly by and Wednesday is our half-way point to Friday which we stampede towards without looking back. With all that rush Tuesday is often overlooked, and passes without much memory. So what better way to make your Tuesday’s meaningful and worthwhile than by spending them writing?

So from now on, each week I’ll post a little bit of inspiration for you all, be it a song I think is good to write to, a picture or a simple text prompt. Prompts have been my friend for a long time, helping me get my mind working on something new, and I hope these little bits of inspiration can help you writers splash your talent onto page.

Make sure to stop by next Tuesday when the first post will be put up, and I hope you enjoy them all! If you have any suggestions for prompts or songs you want posted, fill a form in the Feedback page and I’ll make sure to get back to you. Have a go at them, and make sure to comment or link your work to me; I love reading stuff from the talents of the web. Happy writing, all!
