I am releasing the working titles of my full length collections.
Why? To let people know that I am working very hard.
Now, if you know me in real life, you know that I am a pretty hard worker and I’m always busy. When I’m not working my full time job in Treasury Management, I’m playing with my kids, or enjoying time with my husband, cuddling with my dog. When I’m not doing that, I’m taking photographs, usually of my kids but also weddings, receptions, newborn pictures, events, you name it. When I’m not doing that, I’m working on my double major in English and Psychology which I will be continuing on in the fall at Columbia College. With that said, my precious free time is often monopolized by words- singing, writing, reading.
With these facts in mind, just know that I have always been a writer, so while it may take me a little extra time to churn out all these projects, I am getting to it!
My current projects are:
-Paperback Wings and Patchwork Eyes
-of honey and heartbreak
-The River that Ate all the Rivers
-The Birch Meadow
-And Then, There Were None
These are in no particular order and apart from the first two, I have no idea when any of these projects will be finished. But Paperback Wings & Patchwork Eyes is a collection of 75 poems (as mentioned in the previous blog post) and Chamomile Dreams is a collection of about 80 poems.
PBW&PWE is a collection of poems about being torn apart, sewing yourself back together, the stitches and scars that remain and remind you of when you were once whole.
Chamomile Dreams is a little softer. Focusing primarily on nature and human nature, it encompasses a great deal of romantic poetry. Loving and longing.
