OK readers. I have a question for you. If I was to pour 5000% of myself into a book project would you as my loyal audience prefer:
a) Small, sweet collection of the best poems and photographs–Black Enough and the like. Well produced, and sold here on the blog etc.
b) A memoir of Mama C from sort of pre-adoption to today. I’d complete my book proposal, and try to get a publisher in the next year or so. Mama C and the Boys in book form.
c) something other?
Would love your thoughts, as I honker down for the winter, and focus very intentionally on one major writing project, instead of many little ones. It’s time.
I have two new pieces in print this month. One is my piece “You are not my real mom.” in The Adoption Constellation magazine, and the other is the poem “All gone now” in Hip Mama magazine. I am clearly able and drawn to both types of writing. At the workshop last month, I grabbed the stage and read two poems, that fit each event on each day. The response was magical to say the least. That moved me. What says you? Comment here, or off line, but please let me know. It will help me decide.
