I’ve been planning to write this post for a while, but I’ve just been caught up in writing my book and poetry that I just didn’t find my focus. But here I am at six am wanting to share my amazingly inspiring experience with you guys and also wanting to tell you about my promise to myself 🙂
A couple of weeks back I discovered that there actually were slam poetry nights once a month in Oslo. Being ever so curious about slam poetry and poetry in general I decided to go and have a look. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined what an inspiring evening it would turn out to be! There were so many extremely talented poets there. Some were holding that mic for the first time and others had been up there plenty of times before.
I smiled, cried, had chills and goosebumps. And most of all I felt myself drawn to that stage. Me? The ginger amateur poet with a fear of microphones wanted to be up there and share my work. Just the thought still makes me giggle and sweat at the same time!
And here comes my promise to myself and to you guys!
I’m going to face my fears and get up on that stage! I’m petrified and excited at the same time!
2014 will be the year of extraordinary events and I’m going to take you along for the ride. The day when I build up the courage to stand up there and share my poetry I will also make sure to have a friend present to film it so that I can share it with you all as well 🙂
Wish me luck!
