More about the book.

So, in the interest of keeping track of my progress, and encouraging myself to continue working on this project. Here is an update on “the soundlessw book” as it’s being called right now. I’ve started to track a lot more info about my progress, word counts and such. And I want to have a decent balance between male and female protagonists as well. Clearly, I’ve gotten some work done, but I’ve also added more work to my plate. I don’t have any timeline right now, but I’m working on another poem about the size of The Navy Blue Forest (about 5 pages), so that counts as something. The Navy Blue Forest is sort of about my descension into being really closed off from the rest of the world, and hiding who I really am from the rest of the world. So I want to write a poem that describes my ascension out of that dark place. So that’ll be fun.

I’m still not sure if I’m going to be having each of these stories as separate, individual stories, or if it will be one whole idea. I’m not sure, though I’m beginning to feel more and more okay if it ends up as the latter. I think for a while I was half-avoiding that possible future, but in the end I don’t think it would ruin the book.

I wont be releasing The Navy Blue Forest to be read until I publish my book. However, you can see me perform it at the Acadia next month for Anthology of Interest, November 16th, 9:00 pm, I’ll be there.
