So this year I decided to redefine myself. I still consider myself a writer, of course. Because that’s what it’s all about, right?

But I want to go a step further. So, currently, you’ll notice that my blog is also saying poet, singer-songwriter. Because I want to expand. So far? Nothing brilliant to share. Or maybe it is but I don’t react to it yet.

Anyway, I’m trying to write a poem a day and a song a day.

My first major problem is I can’t write poetry the way I write stories. Poems are vulnerable. The poet is judged. I am really really bad at cutting myself open and showing my feelings. Even to myself.

So we’ll see. Song writing? It’s taking some getting used to. I’m not big on rhyme.

Full disclosure: I wrote neither poetry or songs yesterday.

Yesterday I worked for the post office. It was an all-day thing since it was a Tuesday, and the mail had both Sunday and Monday to accumulate. I get home just in time to eat and then get the littlest one to taekwondo. BUT!!!! I did write a little before the day started. Not even a thousand words though. I’m not proud.
