I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I seem to be on a bit of a poetry high lately… It’s because I’m choosing poems to go into my book, Love Letters to No One in Particular. But, I’ve also been writing songs for The Invisible Girl, and that’s a little bit exciting, and by “a little bit” I mean I’ve been jumping around like the Duracell rabbit from excitedness.
One day I will be cool.
Some fun things are happening and I wanted to share! If you take a gander at the right of this page, I’ve added a donation button to this blog. That’s because I’ve decided to take my art more seriously, and I want to start making money from my creations. My work will always be free, and I’ll always release my poems, songs and art to the world as free as it can be, for numerous reasons that I will get into on a different blog post. But, I also know that receiving money for what you do is important because being able to eat and drink and have a life is actually, ya know, essential for all this life-stuff. I’m pretty sure you get it.
So, the donate button is there and if you at all want to support me that is extremely amazing and exciting and thank you thank you THANKYOU, all of the gratitude goes to whoever choses to do that. And if you want to support me but can’t, thank you anyway, for wanting to. Because wanting to means you want me to do well and you want to see me do what I love and that is a huge deal. I’m doing this because I love writing poems and songs and making weird art and to know that people appreciate it and enjoy what I do means more than I can even hope to express.
Other exciting things, I might be sort of maybe having a gig soon? I err, don’t know any more details than that. I mean, literally, I have no idea what is going to happen with that. But I’ve never had my own gig before and that’s friggin’ amazing. I might even play some of my own songs that I’m writing for The Invisible Girl… More information will come soon, honest.
And, if you haven’t been on my Facebook page or my tumblr, I have finished the cover for the book:
Most of the poems will be what I have published on here but I’m also going to throw in a few new ones, too. At first it’ll be an ebook, and then I’ll start making it into a real, self published book which I’m going to sell right from this site, so keep an eye out for that!
I’m also teaming up with a couple of friends to create poems for this little book. I love collaborating with other artists to make something extra special and that’s honestly everything I’ve ever wanted this project to be. I might be a solo artist / musician etc, but art to me is about bringing people together and working on something new and spreading joy and wonder, and I promise I’ll stop being cheesy in a minute but oh god, I’m genuinely happy that this is becoming exactly what I wanted it to be! 🙂
Until next time…
