Writing a book.

For years I have played with the idea of putting out a book. If I have a “dream” in life, this is the closest thing to it. A life long goal and desire. Yet I have never felt ready. My thoughts to myself have run along the lines of “You need to write more poetry, Angel, before you can do this you need more material, you need more exposure, you can’t do it yet, no you are not ready”!

As I rode the train this morning I thought to myself, “When will I ever be ready? When will I feel like I have written enough? Will I even be around tomorrow to make this happen? What guarantees do I have?”

Thinking along those lines, I realized I’m done waiting. I’m simply going to do it. I want to do it. I’m going to do it. Am I ready? Probably not. But I wasn’t ready to be an adult either. I wasn’t ready to be a father. I wasn’t ready to get married. I wasn’t ready to own a home. I wasn’t ready for boot camp. I have never been ready for anything, none of us are truly ever ready. But we just do it, and we succeed.

That being said, stay tuned for a book of short stories, songs, and poetry. Soon after that I’ll be releasing a mix tape of the songs that I have completed. Like Nike says, it’s time to just do it.
