Name: Patsy Jawo
Book: For The Love of I: Inspirational Poetry
Poetry is an acquired taste; some people either love it or hate. I am one of those who love it. It is intense emotion in a few lines and for me poetry makes me feel human.
Pasty Jawo is one of those writers, who is able to convey connecting emotions with ease. It is my pleasure to not only introduce her to poetry lovers but also haters because she will make a lover out of you.
Out of all the genres in the writing world, why did you choose poetry as a way to express yourself and your ideas?
A great question Tanya, poetry chose me and I am forever humbled and grateful.
What or who inspired you to write?
Inspiration dictates and I scribe.
Was there anything you were doing, such as a job or schooling before you published your first work? Has writing always been a part of your life?
I owned a consulting firm within the financial services industry. Yes, writing has always been a part of my life and I started writing poetry around 10 years ago.
What was your thought process when you was writing this book?
There was no thinking. This book is pure inspiration from start to finish and there were many times I woke up during the night to capture the inspiration that went into For The Love Of I. I only write when inspired because as soon as I start thinking the flow of inspiration is blocked and nothing comes.
Finally, what do you want the reader to know about you after reading your book?
That I am grateful for all our worlds colliding.
Also that For The Love Of I is a reference book that can be picked up at any time and you can be inspired to open any random page where hopefully the right and perfect thing for you will be presented.
And lastly that For The Love Of I encompasses who I am on so many levels so having read some or all of it you will have an idea about what lives in my heart which is a very special place for me.
