is this how clickbait works? i’m new at this
Anyway, on the 8th week of 2015, I wrote and edited 28 poems that are collected in a neat little, well, collection titled Bones Licked & Left.
For now, only print editions are available in my webstore, but I’ll put up a free PDF version soon. It won’t be as cool though. Because the print editions aren’t really print editions. They’re handwritten! Then scanned and printed for copies.
A bit more about the project:
The week before the project, I stopped editing any of my old poems and instead devoured other people’s poetry – Rexroth, Cummings, Ammons, random Tumblr people, some Malaysian & Singaporean poets etc.
On the week of the project, I kept away from poetry and read other stuff instead. Pratchett, The Numbers Game, and lots of magazines – monocle, kinfolk, comics etc. I divided up the work-time as follows:
Day 1 : planned themes, ideas, prompts
Day 2 – 5: wrote
Day 6: edited
Day 7: compiled, sorted, handwrote into booklet
