Creating my wonderland


Listening to Katie Herzig's Lost & Found feels magical, so does writing poems and this blog. When I pick up a pen and a paper, things change around me. I have this idea that one day I might be able to write a book and get it published but the only trouble is I have no idea what I am going to put in that book, a few poems maybe or a story that could be so sensitive that you'll cry. Or something like that. I am terrible at life planning or goals or whatever that helps you finding your directions in coming life. I can't do anything about it, I was born this way (Hint: Lame)

These days I am concentrating on poetry, I've found out that I am pretty good at this. Rhyming words and I are becoming friends and I can do A Poem A Day challenge with myself and maybe do a little cheating by skipping a day or two too but gosh I am the judge so it's okay.

I have started a poetry project in college called ProjectHer. The basic idea is to pick up some girls, totally different from each other, find out their choices, life tales, likes/dislike, what they do and what they hate to do and mold it into a poem. A Poem A Girl. College is a big big world and every girl out there has a unique story and totally different life experiences. I thought turning it into a poetry project would be amazing. I have written one poem so far for this project and that's for a friend. Farin and I are good friends and she's actually the first friend that I made there so I started this project with her. She's a singer and her voice is amazing.

I have complete plans to start ProjectHer in blogland too, so watch out and I'd love to hear if you have any words or suggestions about this. That's how we roll in blogland.

Oh and I didn't mean to keep this a secret on blog but I have a Tumblr now, just for my poetry. Because this blog is for ME and my stories (idk but this sounds selfish) and I needed a separate space for my poems. So drums roll and here's it: Her Poetic Escape. The word escape in the last means much to me. It's because when the reality gets shitty, I always love an escape to another world (See: Tumblr) So I decided that escaping into an imaginary world is crazy, I should build my own world. My very OWN WONDERLAND. This is it, my words and poems are my wonderland. Escaping to my own poetic world is the best option sometimes, it's powerful. I have 11 followers so far, it's been 2 weeks only so I can say this is progress!

So, what do you guys think all of this? :)

  4. Don't plan. Just write. I wrote with no direction all throughout college, & now I'm trying to piece & weave my writings together, to make sense of it. I've found I've been writing about an underlying theme all along, just character building for now. It's consuming, but a thrill. (:
