Website in Metamorphosis
Hi: It’s now October 17, 2018. Since I started this blog June 27, 2016, my Website continues to metamorph … to change and develop as I experiment with what speaks to me.
I’ve decided to concentrate on writing my Memoir, rather than spend time editing and typing my handwritten poetry, prose, quotes, and anecdotes. This project must continue to be put off. There’s simply too little time for me, a “Jackalynn-of-many-trades.”
I’d love to do everything all at once: Edit and type my collection of handwritten poems at the same time I’m writing a book, blogging, and all else. But keeping up a Website and blogs takes time. It’s something one builds gradually. The same goes for getting my poems and my books out.
Though Rome wasn’t built in a day, a part of me wants to build my Website and blogs that way — or at least by the end of this month! Websites can be a static thing — Set them up, leave them be; depending on what you use your site for. But blog sites are a different species, an ongoing process. It all entails a huge learning curve.
So bear with me as I continue to turn that bend and curb the time spent writing blogs and publishing songs and poetry, so as to concentrate on getting my Memoir written and published. Hope to see you at the end of the “curve” … or bend!
Ciao and cheers!

My advice: Write your memoirs. Tell the tale that only YOU can tell.
One other thing: No one ever got rich writing poetry.

Not many get rich, in this day and age, writing poetry, but the same goes for people publishing books. I love Shell Silverstein’s books of poetry for young people, such as,” Where the Sidewalk Ends.” His books have sold well. Of course, he’s only one example of those modern-day poets and writers who have become Bestsellers, Award winners, and so forth.
In the past few centuries poets such as Lord Byron, Samuel Johnson, and Edmond Spenser, have certainly done well with their poems they published and made money off. The list of poets goes on and on.
But I agree with you, when you say what is most important for me to write, for now, is my Memoir. You have helped me decide to make that a priority. I appreciate your input that made this my decision, as it is and was a tough call for me to make.
