Cannibalizing your older works is a fun but tiring process.
I had to read through all my old poetry and weed out the ugly from the gems. Then, adding new poems here and making a few alterations there, I weaved together an epistolary verse novella.
Yes, I actually made a coherent story from a bunch of old poems which I’d written during middle/high school time, and it’s even a story with a bit of soul in it to boot!
Wow, I am amazed with myself…
More on the novella when it’s actually out, but the name is Letters to an Imaginary Friend. 🙂
