Just be fucking honest about how you feel about people while you’re alive.

Here is my hand, my heart,
my throat, my wrist.
Here are the illuminated
cities at the center of me,
and here is the center of me,
which is a lake, which is a well
that we can drink from,
but I can’t go through with it.
I just don’t want to die anymore.

that answer is funny, I compare my writing to yours constantly a die a little inside because we're the same age. but question: what do you draw from most when you write?

ASKED BY Anonymous

oh my! it’s something i do on the regular tbh. i would say i draw most from experience and i focus a lot on feeling when i write? i aim to portray this image and emotion i have in my head and really try to drive that home and work off the basis of feeling into word. also look at what i admire in my favourite writers, try and understand why that is and learn from it

i'm an agnostic and totally loved your explanation on why you wear a hijab. i just found your pride on your faith and religion really really beautiful :)

thank you :)) respect is a golden thing and as long as people have decent humanity towards each other that’s all that matters in the end!

can you please write a bit about the meaning that wering a hijabs has to you? i don't know any muslim women and it would be really nice to hear the importance of the hijab from one of them.

to me hijab is about power i get from modesty. hijab doesn’t just include wearing a scarf, it’s a way of living, of acting in a decent and human way and preserving yourself. for me, i wear hijab because of the love and importance I have for my faith, it’s an identity and a way of life and a reminder for me. personally, i’ve also noticed that although i get the occasional discrimination towards it, people tend to have more natural respect towards me for it. sometimes people can be ignorant and wary, but it gives me a sense of protection and a barrier from the male gaze which is a complete blessing.

do you ever compare yourself to other writers and wonder if you aren't good enough? i know, personally, that i tend to be the worst critic of my own writing and was wondering if you faced a similar issue.

ASKED BY Anonymous

hahahahahahaahha yes all day every day i don’t think there’s a time where i don’t do that? i think it’s a natural part of writing but a lot of the time i wish i had a lot more confidence in my writing tbh and i find it really hard not to pick it to pieces and compare myself to other more successful people, especially people who are my age because i drive myself crazy thinking about things like that
