Poetry for Linux

So I have been writing poetry recently. I don't know why I ever stopped writing in that format because. In the last two days I have gained an immense amount of satisfaction and focus through writing in verse. For an example of my past writings you can head over to the directory in my GitLab Repo.

Since taking up the pen once again, I have found that the verse comes easier to me. I have a style heavily influenced by Pope, Coleridge, Wordsworth, Shakespeare, and etc. My style is also heavily influenced by the Anglo-Saxon and Old Icelandic poetry that I have consumed over the years.

With that said, I have yet another project to divide my attention. I am going to begin working on a new style of poetry which I am dubbing "Bit Verse". I will be refining the processes and stylistic choices for Bit Verse by writing a small book of poetry that will showcase different implimentations of my new style. I have only just today initialized the GitLab repo for this project, but if you would like to go look at a skeleton of a project, head over to Bit Verse. I will be updating it as I find time.

The plan is to:

  1. write a small book of Bit Verse
  2. publish that book with an introduction explaining what Bit Poetry is
  3. write an epic of Bit Verse (tentatively called 2048 Bit Verse)
  4. publish that epic with another introduction explaining 2048 Bit Verse

Since I am now working on 5 different projects at once, I think it is safe to say that this project will take some time, but now that my website is pretty much where I want it, I think it is safe to start this project. I don't think this project will be completed this year by any means, but I will be working as hard as I can to get it canonized.

That's it for now, I'll periodically post updates about all of this, but until then, keep in touch with me on:
