πŸ“– Poetry Book Interview with Ideas with InkπŸ“–

 

IdeasWithInk_CoverLife Became His Poetry. Poetry Became His Life. Captivating Poetry and Prose collection by 16-year-old Canadian teenager. The pain, the betrayal, lost friendships, first unrequited love bled from his soul, seeped through his fingers and into the words and sentences on a laptop. The images born in his mind lived on paper. Three years of poetry filled with despair and hope went into this book and were conserved as the time capsule of his teenagehood. Writing gave him a purpose to live, a desire to share his thoughts, emotions, and experiences, a will to connect with the world through rhythm and line.

Time Capsule sounds like a beautiful book of compelling poetry. What inspired you to create it?

This collection consists of over three years of writing, thoughts, emotions, and insecurities for a modern teen. As I am writing another book, I literally wanted to save all of my previous life and preserve it in the Time Capsule.

What a fitting book title! Now, may you share your writing journey with us?

What started as a healing process from the cruel experiences of the High School life turned into a life journey and passion. Misunderstood, invisible, laughed at, I turned everything around and started writing. I’m also in the process of helping other creative Canadian teens and founded this project: www.canadianteenauthors.ca, which will be going live in September 2017.

Now that we know a bit about your journey, let’s talk themes. What themes are showcased in this collection?

The themes of Love, Betrayal, Self-Worth, Why Do We Live and Die, Who Am I, etc.

Great choices! All of these are such universal themes. How about your personal muses?

Probably my life experiences and also my thoughts and dreams. I was lonely (and still am) but I write and create to share with the world.

Our innermost thoughts and dreams are certainly creative forces to be reckoned with. What does your writing process generally consist of?

I write every day for at least two hours. I then share it with my mother via google docs (we edit, add ideas, copy edit, etc.).

It’s wonderful how supportive your mother is of your craft. Do you have any forthcoming books?

My next book is coming in the Fall of 2017 and it is called nothing by nobody. It’s not just poetry, it also includes a lot of art and photography.

I love when creative minds dabble in multiple mediums. nothing by nobody sounds like yet another lovely collection. Now that this interview is coming to a close, is there anything else you’d like to say?

Yes. Always remain positive, work hard, and believe in yourself.

The perfect concluding words! Especially for us writers. If we don’t believe in ourselves, then our creativity suffers as a result. Self-belief is a super power, if you ask me. Anyway, thank you so much for having this interview with me! It was a joy chatting with you through and through.
