Lit. Update: Agent Research and upcoming release
News on T.W.N.
Soon, I will begin my new research into literary agents, the submission process, and taking an in-depth look at a particular agency I will probably be submitting my first novel to.
A literary surprise will be released here on T.W.N. this month (fingers crossed). Further updates are forthcoming.
Lit. Update: Future Steps
New literary update.
It feels good to finally have my poetry book released in some form. However, the work doesn’t stop there. Now I face the challenges of promoting it.
As I already knew, “self-publishing” requires you to fund most of the work yourself. It gets disheartening and a bit stressful, but it’s what I have to do for now. At least I’ve accomplished one of my major life goals and can continue to build on it. It’s wonderful to be able to look back on the progress I’ve made, not just in writing but in life.
Now comes the constant effort needed to balance these new parts of my daily life. Plus, I’m renewing my efforts to get a part-time job to support my financial needs. For those readers who are also hoping to publish their work in some form, I highly advise that you get and maintain a day job. Don’t…

Excerpt (Poetry) : “There Is a Sweet Hereafter”
It is what you make of it.
The images of mind.
It is the limits of your soul
In boundless space and time.
It is the darkness or the light.
The strangeness and the learning.
The opportunities you missed,
Distracted on the journey…
The hearts you healed, the hearts you broke.
The lightness and the weight.
The smaller beings you trample on,
Or who adorn your plate.
It is what you make of it,
The soul behind the laughter.
So bear in mind from time to time –
There is a sweet Hereafter.

Revised poem (excerpt). Complete version will appear in my new poetry book.
