letting go by estallidos letting go by estallidos
i'm "putting away" my novel while readers go through it so that by the time they're done, i can really look at my words with fresh eyes.

in the meantime, i'm continuing to post the little poems that have been clogging up my three separate hard drives.

i am also about 5,000 words into another novel. [link]

So I read this and was all teary because it's wonderful and then I freaked out because I remembered YOUR NOVEL that EXISTS IN THE WORLD and then i saw that you were doing another and was all ready to break down and then I saw the AVPM gif which just about finished me off. :D
You're still my favourite poet ever.
And because of you I read the Great Gatsby, which was glorious.
Thank you so much. <3333

I'm sorry if this question sounds stupid to you, but do your the majority of your poems hold actual experiences or memories from your life? A lot of them seem to be written in first person and they're so raw and real, it's easy to assume they might be things that have actually happened to you.

:iconestallidos:
estallidos Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012  Professional Writer
it's not a stupid question at all, and you would be correct in your assumption. my poetry is largely (as in around 95%) nonfiction.

i'm not creative enough to make stuff up, haha :)

Oh, wow. Now that I know that, it makes your poetry all the more... real? Visceral? Believable? Do you find your poetry a way to vent your emotions? Or is it something else?

my life was pretty chaotic when i first began posting under this account. writing was cathartic, and it helped to share publicly. things have since fallen into place, but i still have so much writing left over that i never got around to posting, and i want to share it with everyone who has been so kind to me :)
