Forgot to make an announcement! (if anyone reads them still) 
          
          LIMINAL is a three-part project, this one being RED, mostly revolving around creativity and love. They are poems from other collections I have long since unpublished, but there are gems among them. It’s been fascinating, perplexing and sometimes emotional to revisit them after so long. If you are new or old to these poems, I hope you enjoy!

though British Summertime ended a couple days ago here, this is where it began.
          
          "still motion" is my new collection, it will be 45 poems and no, I won't be calling it quits on this collection because all the pieces have been written. I shall try to update this regularly, and each piece will be accompanied by a little "still motion" gif. really happy with my words here, and hope you enjoy them too

SO! [little update + ramble]
          
          this is the final time i scrap a collection. sorry “children of saturn”, time to kill my darling (though still proud of “moon” so that is staying up as a solo piece).
          
          for arounds a year, maybe more, I have felt an impasse with my writing. it’s not a creative block because the words keep flowing. i think a number of other factors are at play.
          
          (1) Wattpad, what’s good? why does the app feel like a cheap mobile game now? waiting through a minute-long ad to get to the next chapter of a book just kills the mood, especially when you’re dealing with poetry, which is generally in a shorter form. and removing all the community elements just makes Wattpad feel so empty now. and formatting my poetry on here has just become even more of a chore.
          
          (2) i know better than to announce a collection when over half the poems haven’t been written. i know a lot of people write and post as they go but i need to see the collection as a whole complete thing before I am able to post the poems individually. i should know better than to shake up my writing process.
          
          (3) guess i have felt a disconnect with my work, which I think I’m beginning to fix. though i always write from a place of truth, sitting with certain poems, collections and ideas for a while, I couldn’t see the heart in them anymore. 
          
          now I’m starting to see the heart again in my words. I’m writing with more intent, feeling, and purpose. and I’m also writing, first and foremost, for myself. i shall not foolishly announce another “work in progress” just yet, but what i have been writing seems to be taking on a form that I am more proud of sharing.
          
          i also wrote this rambling update for myself but i believe there are others out there who are feeling pretty similar to me. hope everyone is well!

@billyfly I don't really mind the ads, I'm just so used to them on all other platforms that my mind zones out during them automatically. but i do think the taking away of the community elements is annoying, it just feels like you have to swim upstream of the algorithm just to get it out there. as for writing itself, words have dried up for me too, but I don't need a sense of completeness for my collection, so i can just post when and if i want. hope you're well too.

@absintheye  On my Laptop I have ABP Addblock Plus but really there are very many. 
            You know, I think on my mobiles I just have Firefox (with Duck Go Go) with the tracking prevention on and that stops the ads but for a generic little static banner, without an ad block.  If you just go to  'Add-ons on settings on your Browser it should suggest a lot of ad blockers.

Success is failure turned inside out -
          The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
          And you never can tell how close you are -
          It might be near when it seems afar,
          So stick to the fight when your hardest hit -
          It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.
