|Is the inauguration over yet?|
Ok, maybe not all those things are positive, but I refuse to let the actions of a small group damage my faith in the american people and in our system of government. Life must go on. Peaceful protests must continue. Governments must shift. Voices are to be heard. The crazy will be crazy.
And... there is writing to be done.
Here are my celebrations for this week, quite a few writing related:
- I am coordinating with two other poets on a collection and I just had the pleasure of working with one of their drawings for the book cover. It's absolutely fantastic. An original piece of art that I will be announcing in the next few weeks. The collection is mature in subjects and not meant for children, unlike the last collection I worked on, ranging across themes including life, death, love, relationships, anxiety, and more.
- I finalized the print version on CreateSpace for Isabel & Leo short story collection. There was a struggle with the layout of the cover. Things just weren't lining up correctly. Now that's done. CHECK!
- Completed a tough chapter in The Onyx Ring, which blocked me for 3 whole months. THREE MONTHS!!!! A small victory, but what the hell -- yay me!!
What are your celebrations this week? Have you been watching the inauguration and all the related protests and coverage? What's your take on all of it?
