I've been a busy little bee, lemme tell ya what.
I'm about 6k words into a novel I'm working on (at a pace of 2k words a day minimum, which is far better than I was hoping) and while it'll probably turn out to be more like a novella, I'm enjoying it very much. I'll have more on that specific project as I get more into it.
In other news, I've written around 35 poems in the past two weeks. It's been a rough time for me personally in several regards, and the whole past year hasn't been the best. But I'm soldering through, keeping calm, and carrying on.
Yes, sometimes my life feels like The Blitz.
Anyway, the poems are all going to be collected in a book I'm going to self publish. I've never thought very highly of my own work, but my poetry...always got the short end of the stick. I've said time and time again I've never been a fan of poems, and I write them in no conventional way, honestly. I write from pure and raw emotions, and just get a sense of feeling across more than anything else.
They're incredibly personal as well, with almost all of them written from a high or low of my emotional spectrum, and all relate to something personal with me. So publishing them is a bold step for me...I've only ever shared them with a select few.
I just need a name for the book and a cover.
OH! Almost forgot the comics part of all this! My friend and I are gonna start up our old web comic again. So I'm working on new strips and it's really...exhilarating. I've never written with such a frenzy like this before.
