I thought I would post up a little something that has nothing to do with either food, nor nutrition, but writing!
Ever since 2005, I have been writing poems, I remember not paying much attention in classes at Upper Secondary because I would always get lost jotting away random verses here and a line or two there... I couldn't help it! It would be anything from poems with a set structure or rhyme - to more open texts.
After almost eight years of writing, I decided it was time to finally get around to pick out a collection of my favourite one, but as you might know, you are your worst critic and so the task proved rather difficult! About a year ago, I think...was when I tried to get a list together of the ones I wanted to include, but it wasn't until this month I finally got my thoughts together and designed my own book!
I used a company called blurb.com, based in the Netherlands (according to the parcel I received). Basically you own all your own rights, and all they do is take credit for the printing process and the basic layouts that you use.
Interested in a copy? Click the picture below or click here and you can order it from the website directly, and choose whether you want a soft or hardback copy, colour or black and white, and whether you would like for it to be sent to your inbox in a PDF format as well for just a couple of extra quid!
It's strange seeing my name on the book, very humbling... I didn't know what to say when I got it delivered at work today. I know it's mostly down to years of writing, but to actually see it in front of me? I'm speechless!
