While I’ve been writing a lot more this year, very little of it has been on this blog as I’ve been busy with other projects. Afiwi Marketing and the Empathy Driven Marketing blog are coming along nicely, and there’s now a podcast to go along with the Jamaican Girl Abroad blog. Like I said, I’ve been busy.
I’ve been taking more chances with my creativity and putting myself out there more. Which feels terrifying, exhilarating, exciting, and nerve-wracking all at once. A life of normal would be so much easier. Problem is, I wouldn’t know how to do that even if I wanted to.
So instead I’m forever stretching and exposing myself. The hope? That ultimately, some of it connects with someone somewhere. That eventually, all this laboring will lead to further fulfillment and profit (because all the feels are nice, but we know they can’t pay the bills).
The latest ‘exposure’ comes in the form of a collection of poetry that helped me with some healing after a heartbreak. It’s raw and primal and I’m not sure anyone will like it. But I enjoyed writing it so for now that will have to be enough.
It’s two collections in one – Healing is Difficult (the therapy session for my heartbreak) and The Human Condition (which is more or less social commentary) and I will share it with the world on December 10 (tentatively).
Here’s to taking more chances!
