As many of you know, my first ever poetry book, The Traveller: Part I, was finally released in paperback! In this post you’ll find some more information, a sale at the Etsy shop, and a GOODREADS GIVEAWAY!
Recently, I performed two poems I wrote at a Poetry Slam hosted by the Thaqalayn Muslim Association and the Islamic Relief at York University. It was amazing event, with some awesome and passionate talent. It was incredibly inspiring to hear other people’s work, as well as their ideas. This is the first poem that I performed.
A family of trees huddle together in the forest;
Some young, some old, both big and tall.
Birds come from far, in the forest they nest;
They know these trees, together, will never fall.
The last few weeks have been moving fast, very fast indeed.
For those of you that don’t know, and it’s many of you since I did this more or less on a whim, I’m currently publishing a book. Many of you might remember my screenplay ‘Wiseguys’, my crime drama that is modeled off all those classic mafia films. Many of you also might know about how the project fell through. So I was left with this script.
Good question, blog!
So now that I’ve completed NaNoWriMo, I’m on to a few more projects.
You know, other than updating this old thing.
Well, I haven’t written a ‘personal’ post in a long time. Here goes nothing.
For the month of November, I will be suspending my projects for the entire month. Why? It’s because I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo, or the National Novel Writing Month.
For those of you who don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, it’s a yearly competition where writers from all around the world attempt to complete a novel of 50,000 words. You can find out more information at http://nanowrimo.org/
