After recently finishing reading a collection, I have this urge to write a book review on it. I’m afraid to in one way because I will piss someone off no matter how diplomatically and respectfully I word my review and in another way it would be good for me because it would branch me out, make me more versatile as a writer. I will stew on this and think about it some more before I do it.
I was asked to come and do a workshop on slam for a youth group by someone locally. Other than tell the kids that HBO won’t care about them once they phase into the adult level of slam or that making a career out of being a full time slam poet without a back up plan is a terrible idea, I know I’m not a good fit for such things. I was meh as a competitor at best, and I told them so. Thankfully, they understood.
