As you write you learn. You learn about life. Yes. You learn about yourself. Yes. You also learn about writing, the profession.
Did you know that many zines on-line and off-line will not publish work that is on web sites? Yes! (Fast becoming my favorite 3 letter word, yes.) They will consider the work already published. Well, since my main reason for writing is not the profession, is not the golden ladder to the awards and public recognition, this piece of information came late and I thought I would share it.
Though it is not my first reason for writing, it’s my first and a half. I remember falling in love with books and stories and strong likings with poems and thinking: Oh, so many ppl have read these words, know this situation, these characters, these lines! I still to this day get a kick from seeing someone holding a book I love. I remember thinking, at the age of 5: YES, I want to do that. Tell ppl things that they can share across miles and years.
So from now on, December 22 2013, into the YEAR OF THE HORSE! my poems will be on my blogs but not in their final editions. So will my stories. My non-fiction as well. This is a place for that. For the embers of the fire of creation. For the perished versions. All polished and shiny, that will be NOT HERE. However, I’ll try to make the offerings more than palatable. If anything is published I’ll add a note.
Let’s try these three categories: Fiction Non-Fiction and Poetry. Commas will be included. Punctuation will be handled with poetic license.
Stuff that has been published will be linked or added in the final version (fv). favor. hmmmmmmm
SO IF YOU WANT TO READ POONAM SRIVASTAVA YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE. LOTS OF LOVE TO YOU ALL.
AND CAP LOCKS IS FINE FOR 3 LINES.
