This is a post I didn’t expect to write.
I never intentionally set out to write poetry on this blog. Poetry is a past time, but I had never let anyone else read it.
Honestly, In the past I hardly ever shared any of my writing. I have been at it almost 17 years and it wasn’t until I started this blog, that I really felt brave enough to share my work.
I am now at a crossroads, I am currently working on writing an E-Book, which I will launch next year, but I may start a second one.
I had someone recently tell me I should write a book of poetry. A notion I never thought of. I don’t consider myself a poet, it’s just something I do to express the chaos inside of me.
This conversation sparked an interest, but I am still on the fence though.
Could I actually sell a book of poetry?
A thought that has been plaguing me all week.
My poetry is raw, it’s a product of my emotions. I feel exposed when I share it, it’s almost more personal then writing about my life.
I am getting to a better place in my life, but I am still battling PTSD, anxiety, depression and chronic pain.
So I don’t want to put myself out there just to realize I am trying to be something I am not.
I know I have to try in order to succeed and even if I fail it’s a building block to success. I truly believe this, but it doesn’t change the fact that I am scared.
That being said, this blog started out as therapy. A way for me to get out of my own head. To share my story and life experiences with people going through similar struggles.
I have done that and more, and I’ve met some great people on here.
So far it has been an amazing journey and I am excited for where this blog is headed.
I have to thank everyone for the support. I wouldn’t have started sharing my writing if it wasn’t for all of you.
Well I am going to continue to share my poetry on here and I might just write a book of poetry.
I would love to hear from you. So far I’ve gotten some great advice on here. I appreciate any feedback, and I hope you all have a great day.
