P is for Poetry

My love for reading formed late in my life, and I got to a point where I wished I was able to create the magic I found in the books I read.

There have been many plot twists on my writing journey… From Journaling to attempting short stories, newspaper articles to fan fiction… But none bigger than discovering that I could write poetry.

A friend of mine once told me that inspiration comes like hiccups… Unexpected and out of the blue. That has been the exact experience I’ve had with writing poetry. Whether I was happy or sad, a few things are certain: poems came when I wasn’t trying to write them, and when emotions were high.

Today I wrote my twentieth poem.

The dream is to have at least one published work before I die. I always hoped it would be a novel…it looks like it may be an anthology.
