Writing is a business, and must be treated like a business. But writing is also an art, and some things I do as a writer are purely for the love of an idea, for expression, for art. Welcome to the Nightmare is such a project. I am putting together a poetry chapbook, a collection of dark, fantasy-themed poetry in a series of chapters that, when considered in conjunction with the opening poem, Welcome to the Nightmare, makes a statement about the nightmare contemporary life can be.
I am at the early stages of this project. I am still writing and polishing the poetry that will be collected in this little book, while also trying to get some of the poems published in other venues.
Perhaps, someday, somehow, this project will be publicly available. I’m not sure how, though, or when. Nor is publication my primary purpose. This project is simply for the love of the idea, and the belief that somehow it’s worth sharing in whatever form it can be shared.
