Last year I wrote an opera libretto, a short play and a treatment for a film. I thought I'd start this year by writing a poem. However I've run out of ink and my note book is now full. I need to buy a replacement ink cartridge and a new note book. I'll also need coffee. Lots of coffee.
Once I've secured funding I will purchase the ink and note book. I will then enter the cafe (see video), order a coffee, sit down and write the poem.
It will be around twenty four lines long.
It may or may not be about something that happens in the cafe when I'm writing it.
Risks and challenges
There are many risks involved in writing poetry. These include: 1) Prolonged bouts of melancholia. 2) Laudanum addiction. 3) Eventual madness. There is also every possibility that A) I will not finish the poem or B) the poem will be shit. In case A) the poem will be presented as an unfinished work. Case B) will probably result in one or a combination of the following: 1) Prolonged bouts of melancholia. 2) Laudanum addiction 3) Eventual madness.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
