Hi.

Welcome to my blog!

Annual Look At My Bucket List

Hello Poetteers,

I've written and published poetry collections. I've written a novel in verse before. My next step is to write one that is publishable.

On my blog, I've shared my poetry bucket list. Initially, I was able to cross two things off my list:
  1. Publish a poetry collection (I self-published two books, A TO Z POETRY and HER OLIVES)
  2. Lead a poetry workshop (I co-lead one at a camp)
A couple years later I was able to cross off half my list:
  1. I've done live performances at the camps I've been to. I'm also doing some recorded pieces on SoundCloud.
  2. I made my first poetry short film this week and will be sharing it in the coming days.
  3. If you have seen my tweets I am working on being a poetry editor.
Today I can cross two more things off my list:
  1. I've met several poets virtually
  2. I have an ebook poetry collection. 
That's 8 out 11 things. I say that's pretty awesome! I'm also working to cross of a 9th item: I'm slowly working my way to write a poem in every format.

The last two things still left untouched are making a spoken word album and doing my own poetry book signing. Today I want to add the 3 more items to my bucket list:
  1. Write a play in verse.
  2. Get published in hardcover
  3. Get translated into Arabic
I hope to change that by the end of this year. What do you have on your bookish bucket list? What have you crossed off? What should I add to mine?

Thank you,

Fida
