First Chapter Plus May 2023 Issue

What is one thing you hope readers take away from Unspoken Emotions ? What I hope readers will be able to take away from this book is that life can be one of your greatest enemies but it can also be so much fun and joy. Yes, it may suck right now and you may not feel like tomorrow is a viable option for you but know that every single day will have a mixture of emotions. Every single day will be filled with joy, hurt, sadness, pride, honor, love and so so so much more. For all the shit times, know that you have to find a way to make your life better for yourself and the future you and past you. What kind of feedback on Unspoken Emotions have you received from your readers? The feedback has all been positive. What I find the most fascinating is that this book has made people ask questions and, in a way, helped people understand what might be going on in someone's mind that they know. It makes me so happy knowing that my pain can help others. How can readers connect with you? Readers can connect with me via my website and which will have my Instagram on there. On the website, there is a blog section where I update everyone weekly on random topics and it's just a fun, safe space to talk. I love interacting with anyone and everyone who has read my book or knows someone who has, so come onto my website to find out more. So, what’s next for you? Are you working on something new? I will forever be writing but when the next book will be released, time will tell. I have it written out, and I have some others planned but all of this will need to be balanced with all of the things life wants to throw at me . What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received, as a writer or regarding life in general? There is so much advice you have probably heard and it's all cliché, but does that make it wrong? No. All I will say is keep writing. No matter what, and if you don’t feel like writing, then read a book or experience life. There are so many things in this world that can inspire us and it can come from the most tiny of random things. And as for life advice… no one knows what were doing at all and that’s okay. As long as your safe stumble around in the dark for as long as you need too – for you need to know the darkness to appreciate the sunshine.

Do you have any advice for aspiring or emerging poets?

Don’t let other poets and writers define how you have to express your work. I truly didn’t feel like I was a poet because I didn’t write how stereotypical poets wrote. I just write, however and whatever feels right. Yes, it will hurt. Yes, some will be shit. Yes, you may want to go back and change everything you have ever written because of something, but keep it. If you take anything away from all of this is that you should keep all of your work; no matter how bad it is.
