~~April 27, 2014~~
I’m starting a new “series” in my “spot”.
“Just Patty’s” Corner …. the power of the written word!
Patty is a very dear friend and can be found at:
In her own words:
“By now you should already noticed that I am a bit strange. But I can promise you, I am totally harmless! (most of the time…) Anyways, let me tell a bit more about me and my writings. I started writing poetry after my big brother died when I was 14 to find a way to express my feelings. But it wasn’t until 2013 when I started to actually publishing my poems on a blog. Before, I just never had the courage to share my deepest and mostly dark feelings with anyone. I was just writing to save my sanity. (can’t say that worked though).
But I got so much support that I started to write more and more. And I am loving it!
I have always being attracted to the more darker forms of poetry, I adore Edgar Allan Poe. Maybe because dark poetry seems to be more raw. Before I started to write dark poetry, the darkness was already inside me. Always lurking right beneath the surface, waiting till I lost my strength so it could consume me.
Because I let it out now every once in a while by writing, I was able to tame the beast and be the person who I am today. Me, without restrictions or suppression. At the same time that I started to blog my poems, I also wrote a young adult fantasy novel which was published April, 2014, in Holland.
When I blogged about this, many of my friends asked me if I would also be publishing a poetry book. It made me think, would I dare to? Well, I never back down from a challenge, so I dared! Soon I will be publishing my very first poetry book called My Wings.
I have written this book under the name Just Patty.
Why the name ‘Just Patty’? Because writing poetry is a naked reflection of the heart and soul, nothing more and nothing less.
It’s Just Me without decorations.
‘Poetry is a way of showing your darkest thoughts and deepest feelings through the art of words. Listen to the music of your soul and let your pen dance on the rhythm.’
I illustrated this poetry book with some black & white photographic artwork made by me.
I always illustrate my poetry with photographic artwork that I make. I model for the photos myself, shoot them and edit them. It’s a great way to combine two of my favorite things!”
I’m lucky to have Patty as a very dear fellow blogger and more than that a very dear friend. She’s the “lil sis” I never had.
I ordered her poetry book and I can say it’s amazing. I regret that I can’t read Dutch because her I’ve heard her adult fantasy book is beyond excellent.
Get ready … because there will be more “Just Patty” heading your way!
Patty writes from the heart and wears her feelings on her sleeve. I love this final product of all the snippets that she has been posting on her blog. Here: […]
