I’ve decided that I’m going to be re-releasing my poetry here on the blog. If you never got the opportunity to read it when I had it up before, you’ll get a chance now. I had pulled all the poetry down when I started selling it as books, but I think it’s more important for people to see my work and get to know me through it than it is to hide it away until someone pays for it. If you like my work, you can show your support by purchasing one of my poetry books, or leaving a tip via the green button at the top of any post. – By the way, I’ll be backdating and posting each piece on the month and year it was originally written. If you pay attention to the dates, you’ll get an idea of where I was at that point in my life. The number beside the title will also give you a clue as to the age of the piece.
I’m also considering doing some new writing. It’s always a challenge for me to get back into writing, especially poetry, but once I kick those gates open, I usually end up writing a lot. I also do my best writing when I’m in pain, and I’ve got plenty of that right now. I’d rather be writing from a place of love and happiness, but we’ll just have to wait and see if the universe sees fit to give me a different source of inspiration.
In other news, I’m trying to come up with other things that I can do for money. I find myself in a place where I need a lot of it, quickly. I’ve already marked everything in the shop down by 25% or more, so now’s a great time to go over there and buy some of the beautiful things I’ve made. I’ve also written a lot more than just poetry, if you’re interested in reading it. I was thinking of doing pet portraits, but they take me several hours and I’m not sure people would be willing to pay what the time is worth. I’m doing my best to think of other options, including small jobs for fiverr. Wish me luck!
