Hyped Up Books: A Discussion

Today I will be doing a different sort of post that I haven’t yet done on this blog before and that is a discussion post. I don’t know why but I’ve been straying away from doing a post like this for some time. It’s not like I’ll think others will bash me and my opinions, but I guess I’ve just been sort of unsure if I should let my opinions fly around for others to read or if I should just keep them to myself.

Camp NaNoWriMo – Introduction

Hello everyone! Today I decided that I would write a post about Camp NaNoWriMo. You might be asking yourself right now what Camp NaNoWriMo is, for since it’s not as large as it’s processor, NaNoWriMo, it’s not as well-known. Well, basically, Camp NaNoWriMo is a smaller and less stress-inducing version of the regular NaNoWriMo that everyone knows.

The Sound of the Flawed

The Sound of the Flawed

cliff

As I sit,

On this sharp pointy rock,

I think,

What if I jumped,

And fell like a deity,

Would I die?

Would I cry?

Would I scream my goodbyes?

Yet I sit,

I sit on this sharp pointy rock,

And I listen,

To the gently rolling waves,

To the wind blowing my hair,

To the birds squawking on the bay,

And I think,

Why would I give up such a beautiful thing?

Sounds and voices,

Cars and noises,

The singing of the Gods may be fine,

But the sounds of the living,

Of the breathing,

Of the flawed and mortal,

The humans we are,

Flawed and perishable,

Yet strong and immortal,

There’s nothing as rich,

As the sound of the flawed,

Of the living and the breathing,

Of the beautiful yet despicable,

Of the mortals we are,

Our many sounds,

Our many tunes,

Our everyday note,

Like a clarinet without holes,

We are all imperfect,

But we’re perfect all the same,

As a long,

Out of tune note.

Seriousness Is In Play

Seriousness Is In Play

seriousness

Everybody was,

Still in the room,

Most sitting,

Some standing,

Some eagerly awaiting,

Some frowning,

Others anxiously expecting,

News of sorts,

Or to make a report,

There’s just one word to describe,

Describe this grave time,

Seriousness is in play,

Work starts on Monday,

Orders and deadlines are in sway,

You’re a ship in the bay.

via Daily Prompt: Seriousness


So this poem was pretty crap, but I hadn’t posted anything all weekend so I wanted to make sure I posted something today. I also have a new video up on my BookTube channel, which you can check out here. My formatting on my videos is crap as well because my editing software went ahead and updated right after I learned how to use it so every other video has the right format and I’m just trying to figure out how to keep the right formatting on each video right when I upload the clips. So yeah, the lighting was better in some parts of the video over others since the sun went down and all that, but yeah. I think I’m getting more comfortable in front of the camera.

When Will This End?

When Will This End?

criticize_quote

You walk past me down the hall,

You follow me on my walk home,

You banter and condemn,

I thought you were my friend,

It turns out that I cry,

Just like the rest of them,

Who would’ve known?

If you attack and denigrate,

Enough I may break,

Well that’s what you want,

Isn’t it?

You’re the criticism,

That makes me,

Criticize myself,

I would just like to know,

When will this all end?

via Daily Prompt: Criticize


Gosh I hope this was good. I’ve been seeing people around writing things based on a daily prompt and I thought that would be a cool thing to do. It’ll definitely allow me to hone my writing skills when I don’t feel like working on something as daunting as my novel.

Please let me know what y’all think! I probably won’t write a poem for all of these prompts, but for this prompt, poetry seemed like the right format for me to write in. Thank you all for reading!

lots-of-love
