New Poetry Collection Coming Summer 2018!
This collection is comprised of work that David created while participating in various Instagram writing prompt challenges between September 2015 and March 2017, and it represents his largest collection to date. The poem to the left is just one example from this time period that’s included in this collection. It’s entitled ‘Someone Took My Pound of Flesh a Long Time Ago.’
From the Introduction:
“Inspiration is tricky business sometimes, and every writer I know has experienced writer’s block in some form. The prompt challenges provided unique opportunities to explore different ideas and even turn a few established ones upside down. The process of forming a complete thought and idea that turned into a full piece brought life out of what might have otherwise been a dry season for me. It was liberating, in a way, to have this list of ideas to ponder and turn over in my head to come up with something in my own voice knowing that a lot of people would also be approaching the same prompts. Most of the time, I wanted to approach the given prompt in a way that was outside the norm…and I would say I succeeded in that approach.”
