If you are new or haven’t yet seen any previous writing posts, I am pleased to inform you that I am writing another ‘novel’! […]

Hai Beautiful! I strangely love reading about end-of-the-world-style novels! I like the idea of pondering what might happen when the time does come.

Breaking free of the lies they’ve been brought up to believe and just facing the fact that everything might one day die, decay, fall apart and eventually cease to exist. How far would […]
