I think it was fate that I read the 24 Hour – Vancouver newspaper today and got a horoscope involving poetry. So I’ll share this moment and mark it down forever. I am in love with the concept of being able to play around with words. I love the feeling when you put two words together that just meld perfectly.
It’s ironic I feel this way when English is currently my worst subject in school. Wonderful, just wonderful.
I have contemplated about turning my blog into one that focuses solely on poetry, but I feel that it’s not truly representative of what I am. Poetry is not my only interest and neither is writing in general. I love to create stories, to wield poetic license, and to create a work of art, but at the same time, I love to read manga, play video games, and obsess over philosophy and psychology.
I also admit that I’m hardly a good writer or a good poet. I try my best to bring a piece of myself into every work, but sometimes I realize the lines I write aren’t very original at all. Sometimes I end up hating a piece I wrote. I’ll be perfectly honest here. I’m bad, but I’m trying to get better. I’m not afraid of constructive criticism.
I’ll try to start posting other things besides poetry around here. As much as I love the art, it’s better to have a variety of different ways to develop yourself. I happen to just have too many. Watch me grow…if you want. 🙂
