What Happened to My Poetry Book?

Six months ago, I talked about compiling my poetry book. That time, I only had 40-ish number of poems. We already have around 400 today. But,

We still don’t have that book.


The positive

I have 10 times number of poems compare to when I just started.


The not-so-positive

Why do I take forever just to do a simple thing such as ‘compiling’?


I think, good thinkers hardly get the shit done. Most of the things happen inside and rarely get executed. Sometimes, I think I belong to this category. The idealist, who are waiting for the perfect moment to even, start.

The three things I want to achieve that I mentioned in the previous post; poetry book, blog, and vlog are still somewhere in the cloud of my mind dancing their best as dreams and fantasy.

We need to get them out.

Learning myself, I work best with a daily challenge, perhaps for a course of 1-2 months. To successfully execute thing one at a time is something I just realized about myself. I remember the daily Instagram #VCSO postings of portrait photography, consistent blog posts just to update my day to someone, then the engaging Facebook status, #sixwordstory, daily poems, daily tweets, and even the daily Instastories that didn’t get to stay long enough. I’ve done them all but separately, each exclusively on its own.

We need to figure out how to retain all of them, side by side. Plan better, maybe?

Anyway, I’m writing today’s post after I challenged myself to write 100 words, everyday on this blog. It’s the 252nd words as I’m typing this. Reached and exceeded my goal for today, Signing off now.

Start small, be consistent.
