Greyscale phone screen

Nowadays my phone screen i s always with the greyscale filter. And I use the warmer tone at night.   Trying to put less pressure on my eyes. Which really is helping.  In addition, scrolling through YouTube or Instagram has become less attractive now with no colour, which reduced my screen time too! :)  . . . . . #greyscale #screentime #reducingscreentime #phonescreen #socialmedia

Screen Habits: the ones really work

It’s been two years since I am trying to get myself into some habits, just to reduce my screen-time. Some didn’t work at all, some really did.

Marjorie Faith Barnard

  “Her window was open all day long now, very fine thin curtains hung in front of it and these were never parted. Sometimes they moved but it was only in the breeze.” From The Persimmon Tree by Marjorie Barnard. 

Excerpt From: Ernest Hemingway. “A Moveable Feast.”

  “With so many trees in the city, you could see the spring coming each day until a night of warm wind would bring it suddenly in one morning. Sometimes the heavy cold rains would beat it back so that it would seem that it would never come and that you were losing a season out of your life.” Excerpt From: Ernest Hemingway. “A Moveable Feast.” 

How to Talk to Girls at Parties | Neil Gaiman

  How to Talk to Girls at Parties by Neil Gaiman My rating: 4 of 5 stars I liked the original short story a lot. Specially when Triolet explains those ideas about poem/ poetry and patterns. When I grabbed this graphic novel, was wondering about those parts, how they’re gonna put those in pictures? But Moon and Ba proved themselves awesome, again. The story, in short, felt a bit rushed in, but it still has the original essence, with those strange colours and line art. And again, who ain’t gonna love Neil Gaiman? Anyone? Nobody.

Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops | Jen Campbell

Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell My rating: 3 of 5 stars 3.5/5. It’s funny. But I also found that it was teasing my reader-ego by throwing some book trivia all the way. Very casually though, which made it more interesting. Also, it was one of my quickest read in recent days, credit goes to the genre I suppose. Which made me realise, one will continue to turn the pages with no pause, only if there is a promise for a new and interesting story forward. Very basic, I know, but how many of us remember this while writing a book? View all my reviews

It takes time.

  To all the creatives out there, no matter you are doodling on your phone or typing words after words in your computer, pushing away the guitar with frustrations, cleaning your paintbrushes for the n-th time or throwing away your fifth draft into the basket, just don’t stop. Keep doing, it takes time.
