Update: June 2021
What a wild ride the last year has felt like. This is my 12th monthly update since starting up in July of 2020. Things are finally (albeit slowly) feeling more normal and hopeful as the days go by. Hopefully, a year from now, lockdowns will just feel like a distant memory.
I've postponed a lot of writing projects for now while I try to figure out work and schooling, so it's unfortunate that writing had to take a hit. but that's how it has to be sometimes. I'm still scheming up new things though. Just need more time.
I still have lots of editing work to do to keep me occupied through these long, cold, lonely months filled with Writer's Block and busy schedules.
Finally! Got my hands on!!! A PROOF! Of a poetry collection. It looks good. I like the cover and the size of the book, so now I'm gonna go through and give it a final polish at some point and try to get it rolling out! I've been itching to get this out for some time now, but it's never felt "right." So this is exciting. First poetry collection. Some good, some bad, but it's all a learning experience.
The collection is called circles vol. 1 and it's under the pen name J. Hudson to keep it separate from my prose. It's sort of a loose collection of poetic ramblings (I guess) about life through 2017-2020, but nothing about any COVID stuff (that'll be in a different collection at some point). This collection will probably be ready to drop in the next few months, so stay tuned.
Thanks. Love y'alls.
