Writing all day makes me go a little nuts
Okay, so if you don't know by now I'm a little crazy to begin with and if you asked my boyfriend he'd look at me sarcastically and say, "What do you mean by just a little?" However, I've been working on a young adult book for about two months now and haven't gotten as far as I would like. I'm tend to be a poetry writer however, when I was in college I specialized in fiction to put myself out there in a genre I wasn't used to. For the past year that I've been out of school I haven't really written much, not even poetry. My poetry tends to be dark and personal so revisiting it to edit and submit tends to bring up emotions I don't like to deal with. Those emotions usually tend to make me go crazy and crawl into a hole that people have to dig me out of. However, I would like to eventually take some of those poems and create a sort of poetry memoir or something a long those lines but now is not the time. Thus, is how this book is being born out of frustration and old ideas that I came up with and I always wanted to use. I'm excited though finding it frustrating that I don't have all the time in the world to write. I know this post has nothing to do with fashion but I figured you'd get a bit more of a sense of who I am besides clothes and fashion. In the end, I'm really just an artist trying to express myself in every way possible sometimes that is the only way to keep the "crazy" away.
