Sebby Writes

I enjoy scribbling small pieces on my random thoughts and occasionally write opinion pieces on some topics that interest me. I used to write poems in Burmese in my twenties but I can’t seem to write them anymore. But from time to time, I try to dabble back into poetry or broken proses in English.

I have never been properly trained to be a writer and I won’t claim myself as a writer, yet, either. I attended two workshops for creative writing class and apart from that I’m a work in progress. Still learning to write more to express my thoughts and feelings through words.

Here are some of my random thoughts transformed into written words and a few opinion pieces I would like to share with some of you. A couple of short stories and poems are included, as well.
