Back to Working on My Poetry ebook

Finally feel like I am getting somewhere, where might that be?? Am I moving? Am I progressing in my professional career (maybe)? I honestly wish this was news about my novel, but still struggling to get myself grounded on writing and committing to it. I am not entirely sure why that is, but alas it is a problem. But no I am excited because I am now taking a step back and working on my poetry ebook.

I feel excited because I have been thinking about it for a while and worked on it a bit but not really committed. Hmm sounds like a problem I might have…but anyway, I started a series of poems and said that I could turn that into a poetry ebook. Honestly it was mostly just some idea I had and I was not really sure how to transform that into an actual project. I have never put a collection together before and being a novel minded kind of person, I wanted to do something a little bit more with my poetry book.

I have poems that I have written and I enjoy. I still have to finish the remaining poems for my series too, but I now have an idea I want to work towards with it. Honestly if I can pull it off as I am thinking then it should be quite a good read. I am hoping to create a story that carries with each poem, sort of a build off of the one before it. I had a friend when I was in college that talked about writing a poetry book where it was a conversation of a relationship with a guy and girl. Each poem would be conversation and describe the relationship. I absolutely loved the idea and I honestly don’t know if she ever did it. We ended up losing touch, but I sort of morph that idea here.

The series I created were poems to the “invisible man”, a created character or idea that I have/had of love. It is about the ideal of the things that I would want in another person and so I am hoping to create a story where it goes through and the poems for the series are the answer to the poem before it. So what issues I am writing about in the first poem, will be “answered” or comforted by the poem that is included from the invisible man series.

I am excited about this project again. I am hoping that I can get this completed this year and maybe offer it for sale by the end of the year. I do have a bit of a leg up, so to speak, on this because I have already written a lot of the invisible man series. I know that since I am going to be incorporating a story element with the book, that it will probably mean some rewriting and what not, but I think this is one of my favorite projects that I have come up with. I hope that you are working on something exciting yourself and if not, just keep searching the inspiration is there.
