I wrote a poetry book! It’s a short collection of poems and lyrical prose I wrote over the the last year and a half based on one-word twitter prompts — and if you sign up for my new newsletter, you’ll get an ebook copy FREE.
The last year and a half has been a journey! The last time you heard from me, I was beginning to write poetry. I was also beginning to get noticeably sick. I really dove into writing as a way to kind of process life with my illnesss (I am bedridden with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, likely as a result of a covid infection — I am one of the many, many disabled by LongCovid). Most of my writing looks at life, faith, and parenting through the lens of disability/chronic illness, and this first book is a small taste of what is to come.
I probably won’t be using this space often (computer time is challenging for me), so I’d love it if you would subscribe to my newsletter. I plan to share (monthly-ish) updates on my writing/publishing, some bits on what I’m reading, and shoutouts/highlights of literary magazines and other writers I love and think you should know about.
First newsletter issue will be sometime in December and include a link to a free copy of Lift the Mask! While you’re here, stop over at my Writing Portfolio page and see some work I’ve had published over the past year. It’s incomplete, but I’m working on it.
Great to see you back online Kristin. I’m looking forward to reading your work.
Thank you! I’m not sure how often I’ll be blogging but I’m definitely writing, and publishing! Good to hear from you, too!
It’s so good to hear from you!!
I am sorry to hear about your year and that sounds like a terrible illness. Wow.
I admire what you are doing, and I really am excited to subscribe and hear more from you.
Blogging and writing is something I’ve meant to spend more time on too. It’d be so nice to interact with you again about that.
I know it’s a busy, rough time and I’m praying for you and your kids and all your family!!
Yours in Advent,
