So, another two pages done and it’s continuing to attempt to capture the sprawling chaos of a public altercation where you’re trying to stop it from happening but there are other people who are really keen to take it to the next level of aggression.
It’s a good metaphor for some of the underlying themes that I’ve seen but am saving for a more detailed look when I have finished this and then come back to it for the second stage.
It’s been interesting this time out, and through a number of disparate events and conversations, it feels like a new stage in my development. I say this and most of you haven’t read anything other than my poetry or the development/progress diaries.
With the poetry, I am considering self publishing a collection of them, would any of you be interested or intrigued if I put one out? I know that more people appreciate kitten videos than poetry but poetry is important and empowering. It allows for an expression of the self that resonates quickly.
It’s also the restlessness of doing a lot of work but not having anything to show people for it. Christ knows, none of us got in this to get rich. I’d go back to prostitution in a heartbeat, but I put on weight when I stopped smoking so no one’s in the market for that at the moment.
Also, the poems yesterday were really well received and thank you to all of you who liked and reblogged. Hello new people, make yourself welcome and have a snoot around. The recordings of my reading are popular with some and there’s poetry and writing tutorials as well as the diary of the second book The Wounds She Wanted and this serves as the diary for Nothing Keeps Me Anywhere, my third.
I’m the best kept secret on the internet, yo.
Appropos of nothing, regardless of it’s quality, seeing 50 Shades of Grey adverts on the bus that drove past me was surreal. I think it will be a pyrrhic victory, enjoyed by it’s adherents and detractors alike. It’s problematic for a lot of reasons and I don’t think that it will enhance the careers of anyone involved in it’s creation. However it will generate massive amounts of publicity/box office and convince people that it’s a healthy example of a BDSM relationship and a good melodrama. If people enjoy it, then that’s the main thing. There’s lots of things I don’t get but that’s cool. We’re all different.
