My writing brain has different stages. I like to write about the life around me but then I want to write about a world that I have created. Other times, I get reflective and the words that dance around in my head become lyrical and poetic.
My focus so far with the beginning stages of my writing has been to give the voice I never felt that I had a microphone and really get his words out there. His truths are revealed in He Was A Boy Who Smiled. How he felt about himself and the violence he grew up in is voiced in Silenced Violence, a collection of poetry written mostly in secret or read aloud to either people at school who would listen or his mother. Or as a teenager, how he felt with the turmoil inside of him about who he should love and how he should feel according to the family values he grew up in and society’s push on sexuality and what was permitted in Inclusive Love. For only a couple of dollars, you can support this voice. My voice.
So I feel like I’m forming this MCU universe with myself. I’m releasing Phase One of my life, all the origins and the musings prior to who I am today. With, of course, this blog and other social media painting a picture of me now. I’ve got a few more releases coming up, more poetry and short stories. All of them part of this “Phase One” but also in the backdrop I have what I’m working on now. Silver has been one of them.
I don’t want to get into too much detail about Silver, but for those who have gone on to Channillo, you’ve been able to see a sneak peek into its development. I look forward to presenting this story to you in whatever form it takes!
But for now, my muse is my poetry and I ask that you take a look. Who doesn’t experience love? We all do in some shape or form and as a kid to growing up now, I always wanted to define love in such a way that it just wasn’t specific to opposite genders. Or allowing a child to express themselves during trauma without fear of more violence? Support these words and spread the discussion. We need to talk about this.
Seriously, it’s cheap, for now, as I slowly grow my anthology for a bigger release. Any support helps me continue. Nothing worse than worrying about finances…THAT is the biggest writing block for me.
