Today I have the most wonderful writing news to share with you!
You have been diligent and adventurous companions on my writing journey for years now. I have shared with you poems, short stories, and excerpts from my novels, my hopes and dreams as well as my temporary setbacks. I have always let you know when I participated in contests, classes, workshops, and the likes.
Though it seemed I wasn’t making much progress, today I haven been proven wrong. Why?
I have the pleasure of announcing to you, dear fellow adventurers, that I am finally published!
As of today, my poem The Queen of Justice is published on the lovely Selcouth Station Web site. Simply click here to read it (it’s free!) – I really hope you enjoy it!
Don’t forget to browse the site afterwards for there are other interesting pieces on there too.
Now, here’s that poem’s funny backstory: I started writing it in French over a year ago. Yep, that’s right. About two weeks ago, I stumbled on it again and I found the inspiration to finish writing it! I wrote a line here… then a line there… and I swear I was lying in bed and I just couldn’t stop writing it in my head! However, I was too tired to actually get up… so I took my phone off my nighttable and I wrote all of it on the tiny screen! But, ladies and gents, am I glad I did.
I have been aware of the Selcouth Station Web site for months due to my sometimes discussing with the team on Twitter (they’re very kind and amusing!). I thought: ”Hey, why don’t I translate this kickass poem into English and try to get published on Selcouth Station?!” I had high hopes because, in my opinion, it is my best poem yet. I wanted them to say yes so much!
Thank you Selcouth Station for publishing my poem, thank you!
I am so proud and I hope you guys and gals see the progress I’ve made. I might be as fast as a snail, but I am getting there. Thank you, fellow adventurers, for supporting me.
Again, if you wish to read my poem, here it is: The Queen of Justice.
Did you enjoy it?
If so, why?
What emotions did it invoke in you?
If not, why?
Thank you for reading, as always.
See you next post, sweethearts!
