I have more good news. Two more of my poems got published! "Amelia Jane" and "The Hunt" were both picked up by the Mused literary journal. And guess what? They were published online so you can read them right here.
"Amelia Jane" was inspired by an interview I watched of J.K. Rowling. When Rowling was talking about love, she said, "When a person dies, love isn’t turned-off like a...faucet," and that comparison really stuck with me. I wanted to put my reaction to that sentence in a poem. I'm happy with how the piece came together.
Over a year ago, my mind was stuck on Easter egg hunts. I was putting together a short story that started with one. . .and then I was having a difficult time deciding what direction to take it. I wrote "The Hunt" around that time to capture some of the images in my head.
