Questions from Divine-Royalty:

1. How did you start blogging?

Since my late teenage years I have been struggling with and managing depression. Around that time I also started playing ultimate frisbee. One is not the result of the other, just coincidental timing. In 2018 I represented my local club at the World Ultimate Club Championships. I started my blog as a way to share my experiences of playing ultimate while managing depression, especially the way physical exercise helps my mental health.

2. What is your best inspiration source?

God. My wonderful family and amazing friends. More succinctly: strong emotion, the uplifting and terrifying. Words organise and orient themselves in my mind and I simply write them down.

3. Whatโ€™s the most interesting thing you’ve found in blogging?

The community. The motivation and inspiration people offer one another is a amazing. Seeing people encourage one another is humbling and I feel blessed knowing I am a part of that.

4. How often do you write?

I write every day. My current novel project, characters and dungeons for my Dungeons and Dragons games, poetry, short stories (currently for competitions with my dad), music (lyrics and music), and I publish two blog posts a week.

5. How long do you think you could blog?

As long as I have something worthwhile to say and feel called to offer what little help I can to others.

      Thank you. I had a lot of rest over the weekend so am starting to feel myself a bit more. Teeth and gums are beginning to cope with real food again too.

      I hope your writing is rolling along nicely this week. ๐Ÿ˜Š
