As I was finishing up the final manuscript for my poetry book, I started two more books. I am feeling ambitious and very excited about writing so I decided to dig right in.
I’m taking a little break from poetry.
The first book is about secular parenting and it is a collection of letters I am writing to my daughter. The letters are for my daughter to read when she is a little older and I’ve already addressed a number of different topics. They are lessons I want my daughter to learn from her childhood without god.
The second is a book about being an atheist and recovering from a mental illness. I have schizoaffective disorder and I’m a certified peer supporter. I’ve given a lot of presentations about my story but I’ve never been given the chance to tell how being an atheist has been a very important part of my recovery.
I am happy to be moving on to new projects and I hope I can keep my momentum going.
