Bucket List Item #17 - Publish a book of poems and lyrics
I've published a novel. I've published a collection of short stories. I will publish a book of lyrics and poems before 2014. I am going to use NaNoWriMo as my way of keeping on track for this. I don't know that I'll 50,000 words in poem and lyric form, but that's not really the point for me. The point is that I want to get it written and have it done by 2014.
I actually tried using the site 750Words, but for whatever reason, that didn't stick. Sure, I made a few entries and I am still technically registered there, but NaNoWriMo is a much more intense, focused goal-oriented method for me.
As for the poems and lyrics themselves, well, they are what they are. I have the freedom to write what I want, how I want because my words are for no one else but me, primarily. If they happen to help someone else that is great!
I think once I publish the poems and lyrics, I'll donate a set of all my books to the local library. That'll be a fun thing to do. I'll take my daughter along and she will see my books in the library. To her, that is the true sign of being an author - haha!
