because nothing starts a day better than coffee with friends.

Seriously, I don’t think there are many more achievable ways to make what would normally be a hum-drum day better than starting it with breakfast with some good sorts.
Though setting the alarm over an hour earlier the night before hurts more than you could know, it always ends up being worth it. Without fail. Every caffeine fuelled time.
There’s just something about drinking coffee and eating carb-loaded croissants with the people you love that sets you on a high, that with a little bit of work can be maintained for the entire day. You’ve talked and stuffed yourself and laughed into your coffee more times than you care to remember (and embarrassed yourself in front of the cute barista) and all before 9AM! I can’t even achieve that much in 24HRS on a normal day.
So give it a whirl. Meet up with a friend before work. Rue the coldness as you wakeup, but be refreshed by the smell of coffee and carbs. Laugh so much you get the hiccups. Spill your breakfast on your clean outfit. It will all be worth it. It makes the 9-5 life that much sweeter.

Sometimes, I want to see
Every beautifully sad movie there is
To listen to every piece of music
That is a work of art
To read every poem and book
That will help me understand myself.
That in all the beauty and art and poignancy
I’ll recognise something inside of me
And it will all make sense

It’s like that feeling you get
When you’re trying to think of a word
And it’s right there on the tip if your tongue.
Except it’s not a word.
It’s an entire thought.
An epiphany that could change everything
That could take you to a whole different place.
But I can’t quite reach it.
There are formings and shadows and shapes and ideas
The very outline of it
But I can’t grasp it yet.

a piece per day.

So as some of you may know, a little while ago I did a little writing exercise, writing a minimum of one piece per day.
This was actually a lot harder than I first anticipated, pushing myself to be inspired by something daily. Looking back, it’s interesting to see how your current mood and place in life so heavily affects what you write. How a month of being in love would inspire a totally different set of pieces than a month spent alone, or being in a different place or environment as opposed to the norm.
So, I will in the coming days and weeks start to share some of my pieces. Look out for the a piece per day tag. And I hope it inspires you to start something similar for yourself. Push yourself. Fall in love with being creative again. Fall out of love with it for being so damn difficult. Aand then realise that it’s part of who you are. And it can create something beautiful

first things first.

Hiya! Firstly, thanks for clicking on whatever link you clicked on that led you to this page. That in itself means alot.
So I’ve finally decided to get myself together and get some sort of website launched. It’s nothing too fancy (I’m not tech-savvy enough), just a forum to keep everyone updated and such without clogging up their instagram, twitter, Facebook, tumblr and tinder feed.
Here I will be posting my thoughts, pieces that I’m working on, updates as to how my writing as a whole is progressing…basically just keeping y’all in the loop. Take a look around, I’ve got some word type things floating around on my about page and my writings page.
So I hope you enjoy the TAYLAH BRITT COLLECTION, and feel free to visit often
