    Haven't been writing at all for a long time guys, but doing very good in terms of nofap.
    I've also been doing well in the army: working, running, interacting with good people. Trying to stop smoking somewhat successfully. Smoking definitely feels not as hard on my psyche as pornography. I don't feel so guilty and bad for it.
    Life's been good even with all of the hardships of army duty. I kinda changed my mind about it all, I just wish I could express it in some form of art, that's all.
    I understand now guys, it's not about the problems but how you see them, how your percieve them psychologically, I hope that makes sense.
    Good luck and God bless to all of you guys. I'm not going post anymore of these rantings here cause I understand that they're out of place here, I just like the vibe and energy of this particular thread: just guys trying to do some art to ease their life struggles - that's how I see it anyway. I'll post only if I write something now.
     
  2. I'm hoping to finish this article in the next week or so and then write a poem and finally begin work on that Eliot essay I've been wanting to do for a long time now.

    Gonna have to give myself two weeks for the next chapter. Not because it's long, but because I have several appointments that are happening at the same time as I would normally be writing so I cannot guarantee I'll be able to get much done on some days.

  7. I've gotten my article done but I'm not entirely happy with the ending so I'm gonna put it aside for a few weeks and then come back to it with fresh eyes and see what I'm missing. But I'm doing with those for the rest of the year so I can finally pursue my Eliot essay, some poetry, and maybe try my hand at prose writing again. I know I've got a new poem in the works and I'm wanting to take my time on it and try to really push myself to give it my all.

    A good idea, I do this when editing - give it some time, then go back to it. Makes it easier to see issues you wont have noticed before.

  11. I meant to say done but didn't catch that typo in time. Oops haha. But I'll probably sit on it for a week or two and then come back to it.

  14. I've got three haikus done for the months. I need to edit two of them and then add them to my collection. Not as many but it's because I've been inspired to write other poetry and some essays.
