The Un[(i)ver(s)e]kind

We all know (with the help of history, stories, movies) that life is just a series of curve balls. Just when you think things have settled and you’re starting to become content, the Universe unveils something. Whether it be an addicting hobby, unsettling news, death, and even new love. The recurring theme is to always keep your head on a swivel and embrace the things to come to you. No matter how difficult.

In the past few months, I didn’t expect quite a bit to happen. Just when you feel a little defeated, complacent, and cold, something comes along and warms you up. Revives you. Reminds you that you’re quite comical. Most of all, how surprisingly devastated you are when it’s suddenly removed. How vital you discovered it to be. How cruel of the world to send this one to me. Twice.

Now, I’m just rambling.

Where can I go when the shadows are calling? I’m slipping into the deep end. Thoughts of you consume.

Erika Damn Castle!

I've always been told that I'm an adventurous girl and I cannot deny any of it. I would love to see the world and experience all of the stories it has to tell me. I am a child of the arts, developing my senses in music, painting, sketching, crafting, et cetera. But writing... it was a talent I believe I was born with. I'm not saying I'm an amazing (grammatically correct) author, just that I'm a natural storyteller. I can remember from the time that I learned how to read and write, I was eager to create my own world. I would scribble out tons of poems and short stories, then forcibly share them with my family (or even with my classmates). One of those stories resulted in the creation of this blog. Black Tears. As a child with an already wild imagination, I would always have these equally crazy dreams. One of those dreams was so vivid, that I awoke in the middle of the night and jotted down everything I could remember. From that point, the dream evolved into a poem, then a short story, and then to a complete story. It is the fruit of my 20 year procrastinating labor, and has been published into a book (the first of its series). Tune in to stay updated on the growth of myself as an author and the series. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have loved creating it! XX , Erika
