Perks of Being a Wallflower

I don't know if I will have the time to write anymore letters
Because I might be too busy trying to participate.
So if this does end up being the last letter,
I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school
And you helped me.

Even if you didn't know what I was talking about
Or know someone who's gone through it.
You made me not feel alone.

Because I know there are people who say all these things don't happen.
And there are people who forget what it's like to be sixteen when they turn seventeen.
And know these will all be stories someday
And our pictures will become old photographs
And we'll all become somebody's mom or dad.
But right now these moments are not stories.

This is happening.
I am here and I am looking at her
And she is so beautiful.
I can see it.
This one moment when you know you're not a sad story,
You are alive.
And you stand up and see the lights on buildings
And everything that makes you wonder,
When you were listening to that song
On that drive with the people you love most in this world.

And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite.

Spotlight

"Sometimes it's easy to forget that we spend most of our time stumbling around the dark. Suddenly, a light gets turned on and there's a fair share of blame to go around. I can't speak to what happened before I arrived, but all of you have done some very good reporting here. Reporting that I believe is going to have an immediate and considerable impact on our readers. For me, this kind of story is why we do this."

-Marty Baron (Spotlight)

The Bread Manufacturers principle of free reporting

"It is of extreme public interest that no conduct should be permitted which is likely to prevent a litigant in a court of justice from having his case tried free from all matter of prejudice. But the administration of justice, important though it undoubtedly is, is not the only matter in which the public is vitally interested; and if in the course of the ventilation of a question of public concern matter is published which may prejudice a party in the conduct of a law suit, it does not follow that a contempt has been committed. The case may be one in which as between competing matters of public interest the possibility of prejudice to the litigant may be required to yield to other and superior considerations.

The discussion of public affairs and denunciation of public abuses, actual or supposed, cannot be required to be suspended merely because the discussion of the denunciation may, as an incidental but not intended by-product, cause some likelihood of prejudice to a person who happens at the time to be a litigant."

I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right. The Book Thief, Markus Zusak

Eight years is a long time to be here on deviantART. I basically grew up here surrounded by many wonderful people who have taught me important life lessons. And there's still so much to learn.

I'm a writer and will always be one. I believe in the power of language and the imagination to transform people's lives. I currently make my living in the real world as a medical journalist, and study law part-time. Ideally I'm hoping to stay in journalism, but if I do have to go into law, I'm leaning towards media law or medical law.

I mostly post flash fiction and short stories on dA, though I've been writing more poetry recently. I've also done my fair share of novels, but nothing worth publishing at this stage!

I've been published in a flash fiction collection. And outside of dA, I've been published in print, online, radio and TV on news, features and even opinion.

The most important thing for me is to strive for improvement and enjoy the inane madness that writing brings to my life.

Thanks for dropping by! :wave:
