SPACE HAS BEEN BUSY: RARE PROJECT UPDATES
🎵: where you want to go? by eevee
Hola Medium familia,
I’m here with a rare update on projects I’ve been steadily working on that I’m very proud to share with you — this includes my new poetry book “WELCOME TO MY WORLD”, as well as new video + audio content on my TikTok/Instagram and my Spotify podcast LOVERBOYINSPACE being produced consistently.
I would like to start by thanking everyone who’s connected with me on and off Medium, whether by reading/listening and liking a poem, leaving comments which add life to every piece, bookmarking a poem, following, or inviting me to join your world through prompts and publications.
Poetry and storytelling has always been a personal experience to me, allowing free space for a very private and loud mind. I feel like my friends on this platform have let me tap into a community that before, I would only imagine having a connection to.
Anyone who’s followed me the majority of these last 6 years on Medium has probably noticed I am not an excellent communicator when it comes to sharing what’s going on in my life or details of what I’m working on outside of writing poetry. I do try my best to stay engaged, reading stories and poems, leaving comments and grateful replies, but besides posting my poems and listing my platforms below each piece, my world and visions, I think, I’ve left pretty vague for some time.
I always hoped my poetry painted a good story of my life, connecting the dots to new experiences and emotions, and so, my other projects wouldn’t require additional stories of their own. Time has punctuated that it’s a clearly unrealistic expectation, especially in the flood of content and talent. Being truthful, I’ve never doubted the fact, but I secretly hoped I would be lucky. (who doesn’t?)
I can’t say I will immediately make giant strides in my area of opportunity after this post. Honestly, I’ve learned I just share myself differently. It’s taken a very long time, but I’m okay with not doing everything for once. I’m working as a social media marketing manager right now. I’m going a million miles most often with work and family…
