Hands down, my comfort zone is poetry. So there will be a lot of poetry on this site because I literally have thousands of poems dating back to my high school days. My bread and butter is poetry, but after participating in NaNoWriMo last year, I definitely want to branch out more with storytelling. It’s a lot harder and requires a lot more discipline and planning, but I’m up for the challenge. I have to be. I mean, I do have a first draft of a novel waiting to be edited (I just haven’t built up the courage yet!).
But I don’t want poetry to merely be my bread and butter. After writing a novel in a month while juggling a husband, toddler, full-time job and at the time, moving, I feel like I can take on short stories and then work towards another novel. I just want to write! I have to write! I need to write! It’s a requirement for me, like breathing.
