Writing a book does not have to be hard.
For sure it requires patience, commitment and perseverance.
It takes the courage to express, create and share your soul with the world in a vulnerable way.
And this can be a very joyful process!
I have spent the past seven years of my life writing and blogging poetry every single day. I developed this practice on receiving a powerful message to write my feelings down after losing my amazing Father to pancreatic cancer back in 2015.
And now after years of cathartic creation, I am getting so much fulfilment out of finally putting my words into print.
My poetry book is nearly ready to publish and I am savouring the experience. I am thrilled that so many people in my network have been supportive on this journey and are looking forward to reading it.
And everything about this feels so right.
Thank you to all of my WordPress followers and connections who see me and who know and get what this project of the heart means.
What are your current projects of the heart?
Just write and let your soul take flight
Let undiscovered sparks ignite
On wakeful, starry lonesome nights
Let your pen run amok and write
Let dark blue ink run down your page
Uncork your deep red wine that’s aged
Release your truth, creative sage
How lions roar when they’re uncaged!
Just write with no end goal in sight
Transmit your very human plight
The grammar police are sleeping tight!
Within your fingers there is light
Just write, express with all your might
Fear not of being wrong or right
Your heart’s desire, your inner fight
Paint what you feel with words, just write!
