A couple of days (or weeks, sorry, I tend to lose track of time during the half term when I stay at home) ago, I was invited to do a guest post for a blog called Swallow Our Words (SOW).
If you haven't heard of them already, here is a little bit of information about who they are and what they do:
"Swallow Our Words launched in February 2012 delivering UK Music, Fashion and Art. Swallow Our Words focused on UK news and covered solely UK artists. We featured many upcoming artists and became a platform for 16-22 year old to write and express themselves. Founded by Elizabeth Puddicombe we went on to create Unwind, a bi monthly entertainment showcase based in Leicester. As of our 3rd birthday we have decided to completely change what Swallow Our Words once was. We are introducing a new catalogue/archive where anyone around the world can submit a opinion piece, a ‘my story’ or a motivational segment. We want to connect and share posts from across the world. We will upload all posts raw following motivation, see our submit section to upload yours!"
Going back to my main point, they published my short post 'Dear Past' and I'll really appreciate it if you guys clicked the link below, read through my post (and all the other amazing, motivational posts published), and tell me what you think. Maybe even write your own short post too.
Anyway, I've got another quote and picture for you all,
“Writing is the only way I have to explain my own life to myself.”
