So, in my last VPD entry, I realized the blunder I made regarding my first draft and why it’s been difficult writing the second draft and recording my progress (basically, it’s hard to record your progress when you’re not making much progress). This hasn’t exactly put VPD to a complete halt, but I need to pause so I can figure out how to better track my work as a novelist via the articles. I’m also taking time to find more resources that will help me during this stage of my writing because VPD is also meant to share helpful writer resources and/or writing advice too. I don’t want the VPD to be about nothing, so I’m taking a step back.
As I do that, I’ve decided to do work on a poetry reading of “A Plea to Death” and will upload it to my YouTube channel. Please subscribe if you’re interested. There is already one poetry reading available.
The YouTube channel Academy of Ideas presented an incredible argument using quotes from Etienne de la Boite, a French philosopher, writer, and judge, to address how enslavement is voluntary. I’d like to point out that this video is discussing psychological and economic enslavement more than other types of slavery. I don’t want their message to be misinterpreted as an ignorant assumption about history.
This will be the first installment of the philosophy page. Hope you enjoy and comment what you think of the video. Also, if you liked this video, support Academy of Ideas by subscribing to their content.
Believe it or not, I got this idea while doing a meditation today. I want to start uploading my own poetry of the gothic/horror genre onto my Youtube channel (It’s dead right now, but you can still subscribe lol). I’ve been trying to find other goth/horror blogs, channels, and tumblrs to just get a feel for what the community is like. Though I’m goth myself, I think I’ve always been just a little shy. I’m ready to get out of my comfort zone a bit and post more content that isn’t as time consuming. Digital art takes time. Writing my novel is taking forever, of course. My music takes time as well. Poetry is one of the few things that naturally flows, is simply to edit, and it’s something I’ve wanted to share, I just…yeah. Sometimes anxiety wins. I actually wrote a poem about that and I will hopefully have it posted tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Please chat with me and tell me who your favorite poets are? Or people who read poetry who are really fun to listen to. G.M. Danielson is pretty awesome. He doesn’t read just poetry though. Lots of horror short stories too.
Also, I have a music recommendation. Witchhouse is my new favorite genre.
