At the back of my mind I had always wanted to be an author. People would tell me that I am good at writing and I should write a book. But as someone who is daunted by the process of anything that takes longer than a few days – I didn’t see how I would ever write a book. During a chunk of the Coronavirus pandemic – I rediscovered my love for poetry and writing poems kept me sane. This poetry collection is a product of me trying to make sense of the world when nothing made sense.
While I am ecstatic about this – can you believe I have a book?! That people can actually purchase – I was also going through some rough spots with handling grief and anxiety around the time the final edit came out. In this podcast episode I am really honest (maybe too honest?) about how anxiety and grief can dull the flame of a lifelong dream; how I have been reclaiming joy; and you will definitely see a glimpse of how imposter syndrome affects us all.
