we get caught up in imaginary rules when it comes to #writing
anything period, which pulls over into making it more difficult for writing/publishing a book... oh the scenarios we place in our thoughts that keep us tangled.
for myself, i had question after question flowing thru me. will they be curious enough? like what they read? think differently of me? wonder what the hell is wrong with me? lol.
but seriously, my #poetry
book isn’t for any of you or anybody else. (just like yours isn’t for us) it’s for ME. it was my own personal challenge to sit down, #write
a book and #selfpublish
. i lost sight of that for a bit (the funky fears, self doubt, talking unlovingly to myself, etc) but then i Capricorn’d up and got it done, the end.
but you know what... there’s alot of smack in social media when it comes to “writing”. i have seen folk post bs about those of us who write/share #prose #micropoetry
and short poems. get the F outa here with that.
if it’s authentic, it’s valid. it’s a creation. and that in itself is beautiful. .
my poetry book,
The Red Flower, is on Lulu and Amazon...
