YouTube: Four Year Anniversary



In this video, I discuss my reaction to it being four years since the inception of my blog,

There’s talk about the highs and lows of my writing over those four years, the publication of two volumes A Journal for Damned Lovers, and what the third volume will be like. I also shed some light on what direction I want to take my words, and what the plan is to make this happen.

And there’s the usual digressions and moaning.

  1. I enjoyed this. Sometimes I smile or laugh out loud, the bloody bins! I am still reading Volume 2, yesterday I sat on the porch in the sun and read for over an hour. It’s really good. Congratulations once again on it. Wishing you all the best and much success in the new year SK.

  2. I enjoy your videos, Stephen. It was interesting to hear about your previous poetry and your progression to now, your poetry now. I’ve struggled with this in the past too. I’d never considered myself a proper writer until this last year, not until meeting you and others like you – but I’ve been faffing around on this site for a few years. Instagram is my favourite because it has everything I need to show my creative side. I’ve been on Instagram since 2012, I believe.

    Ps. I was wearing the same top in bed last night, as you’re wearing in the vid. 😁

    • Thank you, Allane.

      It’s a strange journey for all of us, isn’t it? For a lucky few, the road is pretty straight and to the point, but for most, it takes us places we never would have imagined. I’m glad for the experience now, but there were many years when it wasn’t much fun at all. But even then, such unpleasant and unfilling times end up coming of use to us later on, so nothing is wasted in that sense. That’s the beauty of the creative act.

      I’ve got two of those tops! I wear them under my dressing gown 🙂 x

  3. Could you try and not sit on the edge of the camera frame, the next time you film yourself? I saw only half your face. Lol. Happy New Year to you and many many more years of happy blogging to you. Yay!

  4. Watching your video was like meeting you in person, only I couldn’t tell you what a great writer I think you are. So, once again, I have to tell you through this message. It’s amazing how it all started and how far you’ve come. I’m glad I’ve met you, and I wish you the best with your projects.

    • I’m touched you enjoyed the video, and that it left such an impression on you.
      I thank you for giving me these words. They mean a lot to me, both in how kind they are and how you appreciate the struggle as well.

  5. I enjoyed the video
    And you are one of my favorite blogs to read because you are such a honest and raw writer that is a good thing. Your writing is always painted with great detail and pure emotion.
