About this deal
my biggest fear is that we were meant to be. what if we were wrong, and we missed out on all the ways we were supposed to love each other. what if timing and space was just an excuse that we used to separate two hearts that beat simultaneously. maybe we are going to live the rest of our lives watching the wrong story unfold.”
I think poetry has always been something that’s really natural for me. I have ADHD so I feel like my thoughts kind of come in small bursts of inspiration rather than one novel of inspiration. And so I think that’s part of the reason that poetry comes more naturally to me. But, it wasn’t something I was really pursuing. Being an author wasn’t something that had been a life goal for me. It was a side passion project that I always worked on, It was a way of coping with things. It became this thing where I don’t really know how I got here.” What is your favorite book?

I guess this wasn’t just my cup of tea. I wish there was mention that it’s not only poetry BUT ALSO quotes / poetry prose, because one sentence is not poetry for me. And this book, as much as I wanted to like it, I really couldn't. It was just boring and disappointing. I feel that it's just the second version of "Home", which I also read, but that one I wouldn't even call poetry - it was more like a diary and love advices, than poems.When I started writing it I was lost in so many areas of my life. I had just gotten out of a romantic relationship, so I was in a really rough spot with heartbreak. But I was also really unsure of my direction in life, what I was pursuing, and unsure of who I am. I think part of that was going to college and having to redefine my identity on my own terms. Homewas kind of me finding myself again after all that I’d been through. That’s why I titled it Home.“ How did your writing process change after your first book was published? but every time i saw the ships i forgot about the light. i dove headfirst into the sea and swam to save their life.
