I just wanted to write a little post about what I’ve been up to these days. I’m still writing (yay for poetry!) and running…lots of running. I started running last year to burn off some anxiety and stress that I let build up in my life and it has done wonders for me. I trained for a half marathon and finished it in 2 hours and 11 minutes. I had hoped to finish it faster, but am going to redeem myself in 52 days at the Grandma’s Marathon (the half, not the full) in Duluth, Minnesota. Yayayay for running! Anyone else run?
Next, I’ve been toying with the idea of putting my poems into videos! How fun is this! I love trying new things and this seems to be the next step (might add a YouTube channel on top of everything else…weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!)
I am also going to have a friend video me when I read at our local poetry readings (the next one that I am going to is in June…so stay tuned for that!) If you are in Minnesota and want to see me read, send me an email and I’ll give you the details. For everyone else, I’ll post that video as soon as I make it!
So yesterday, I spent the majority of the day learning a video editing program…I am not that technically savvy…so please, forgive me for the simplicity of the poem and the video. I wanted to start out with something that was easier to work on…let me know what you think! It takes a great deal of time to put these together and I am not sure if it is worth it. Or I should just video myself reading my poetry instead.
ANY feedback is WELCOME, except saying that I am terrible at all the things and I should just stop writing…please don’t give me THAT kind of feedback.
(For those of you wondering, yes, I know I did not post a Fantasy Friday poem this week. I needed a bit of time off after I wrote my “Grief is a Thief” poem to regroup and get back on track…hoping to have one ready for this Friday!)
As always, thank you so much for reading my blog!
