I'm glad to hear I'm accomplishing something other that shoveling snow!

I just found this... ehem...

I don't want to turn people off my writing. This is real food for thought. I do kind of treat DU as a writing laboratory. It goes up when I feel a purpose to it.... and then I pack it away, hiding it and consolidating it into ebooks to share. I'm happy to share an ebook for free with anyone who asks. Especially if they know me here, where my thinking and learning happened.

My purpose in my shared poems and books is to preserve parts of my soul for sharing with my friends and kin in case I am put in the ground. That idea has had babies since it birthed me as an author.

If you see my "YOPJ" entries they stand for "Your Own, Personal, Jessica" a collection of parenting memoir entries meant to help me say hello and makes friends with my audience; and whether you have kids or not, my struggles with parenting are told in a personal, relatable way.

YOPJ - Lead Balloons and Shoe Leather Vs Helium and Cake

This problem I'm having lately is completely my fault! I'm stuck in overdrive. Normally I have a slow flow rate to my writing. These days instead, I'm stocking up on extra writing in my draft files while still posting at the upper limits of DU poetry's tolerance. Yet in my brain is stuck SO much more material. I'm literally drowning.
 
Don't worry; I won't exsanguinate via my pen. I cannot post in blood. It's just dribbles and dribbles of merciful ink, here and there to take to top off my overflowing mental mammary glands.  
 
But in the meantime I am trying to grapple with life as a writing mother who wishes to make enough money to not be scared of future media visibility.  
 
Media visibility that isn't coming from me. I can't control it, I can only prepare. I'm running scared. Sandwiched between songbirds and writers galore in my family, from artists gallons of paint spilling off canvases from easels on all sides. I'm short, scared of people (sort of) and not at all timid of the stage, so my stilts have me balanced on ball-point tips. Hoping writing gets me into a better position to serve and live safely.
 
Back to my problem. My own torrent of ink. I can't even tell if my new book "Cake and Helium" will fly.
 
I overstuffed my bookworms. Sorry!
 
Please, if you are actually reading this please comment and tell me what you think of my newest poetry book idea. (Read the poem, "Cake and Helium" while you are at it!)

There are also software programs called Archivers that can allow you to save hundreds of website pages within in minutes. I have a thread about that somewhere in the Speakeasy.

EDIT

There it is.


Been wondering where we kept that. Thank you. I missed it.

By way of apology... I wrote this for you all.



P.S. is there any way to link to a poem in a thread without blasting the whole article in your faces?

Yes.

Remove the "s" from the https:// in a link, like I just did.

Not many people are aware of this; I stumbled across it myself only recently.
