Five years ago today, a box full of my chapbook Words or Water arrived at my doorstep.
I was very pregnant. In a little over a week I'd meet my first baby and become a mother. My book party wouldn't happen for 6 months. All to say it was a special, emotional time for this writer Mama.
I can't believe I have an almost-5-year-old kiddo (ahhhh).
I also can't believe I haven't written so much as a draft of a manuscript in five years. Potential titles for potential works-in-progress fill my head and computer files. These days I reach for trust. Trust that one day I'll carve out more time to write towards another book.
Until then I celebrate this little collection, this chapbook length ode to my 20s. Help me celebrate Words or Water's 5th birthday by grabbing a copy of the collection for yourself or for someone you love:
