Train of Thoughts

The Ugly Writers aim to encourage people to share their thoughts and express themselves about certain topics that really hits the spot.

Beauty and Chaos

The theme Beauty and Chaos is about how life can be beautiful (or ugly). This aims to inspire people that no matter how chaotic life can be, there is always something good to look forward to at the end of the tunnel. That behind every chaos lies beauty.
This May, we present short stories, essays, poems, or blogs that depict grand aesthetics, organized chaos, seemingly impossible challenges, hardships, success and failures, and anything in between

Inner Strength

All of us have a story of greatness. Inspiring stories of a remarkable show of character is what April is all about.

The theme Inner Strength features thoughts by everyday people like you and me. You could not imagine how creative and vibrant the minds of these seemingly normal individuals. And that is what makes us The Ugly Writers. We believe that everyone should be given a chance to share their thoughts.

Me, Myself and I

Great stories don’t always have a definitive protagonist or antagonist. Some great untold stories are all about internal conflicts. These are stories that take place not on picturesque locale but on the depths of one’s self.

Me, Myself and I is a collection of stories, poems, and essays about self-discovery, existentialism, and identity.


Our theme this month is Beauty and Chaos

Chaos and Sweet Misery

Her mind was occupied with a sweet misery.Or you can say a loving memory of someone she loved with pure soul.The ‘nobody’ of her life.


It always starts the same with your name it has to it has to because it's the only thing that is true


Didn’t know that this time would come, I can be who I really am. I didn’t need to pretend just to impress you, Because I know whatever happens, You’ll accept me for who I am.

Wild Flower

Never back down in love I believe For in love we all bleed till it satisfies With little dirt on me with little lit inside me

In Funeral

How can you not cry in a funeral? How can you not cry? How can you not ask yourself if people would come to yours? How can you not question life when parents bury their child?

The Back Room

I didn’t know what an “alcoholic” looks like up close, or how they think or act, but this experience brought me to the realization that they look, think and act a lot like you and me

Love Actually

Love is said to be boundless like time and space that is neither understood by gods and people in stories They say it is through the heart that beats roughly a hundred thousand a day Read more…


Nakakalungkot isipin na sa ating pagmamahalan, ito na ang huling yugto. Pero mahal ko, salamat dahil sinindihan mo ako. Binigyan mo ng init ang aking nilalamig na puso.

Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

Shoutout to you, who'll keep rocking and doing your thing so different and so special and so important in your own way. To be the best you can be for yourself, and not for anyone else.


I stood there, peering in her blue hue. Sweet betrayal dripped from her soft lips and I kept waiting for that final kiss.

Beauty of Day

In the edge of melancholy, I pray Someone will wipe the tears away I tried to create a new fantasy And I found you beside me

Midnight Petals

Words can kill me against my strengths, But never abandon my grace. Words can drown me till loss of breath, But never again in that place.
