This is “The Writer’s Corner”. This is a Canadian blog run by me, Coeur d’un Poète. I will be posting original creative features like poetry, opinion pieces, and much more if time allows.
As for myself, there’s not much to tell. There’s not much I can or want to tell without breaking the blog’s policy of anonymity. The handle “Coeur d’un Poète” is a knockoff of a Quebec artist’s moniker, “Coeur de Pirate”. It literally means “Heart of a Poet” in English. As to why I can’t call myself that in English, well…I’m sorry, but the literal translation isn’t as good as the French moniker. I know it doesn’t say much about who I am. You don’t know what I look like, whether I’m a guy or a girl, how old I am or any other personal info (unless you know me personally, but that’s another story), etc. There’s a good reason for that: I can be anybody – you, your neighbor, your friend, that guy you met on the bus this morning or in the coffee shop…you get the picture. But give a real name and a face to the moniker, and you lose the ambiguity. It ceases to be everyone, and that’s not what I want.
Writing has always been a hobby of mine and I aspire to become a more varied writer at times, but I’ve never yet considered leaning professionally. I’ve studied to become a teacher at one point, then veered off and went another way – towards finance and admin. But most importantly of all: I am a millennial, and I have a job. Not this one, mind you, but I have one! I have a balanced outlook on life and I tend to see most things in a holistic manner. However, I don’t exactly trust the internet so I will keep this apropos short.
My main thing when writing poetry is to write what I see and feel, good or bad. Whether or not it makes sense is for you to believe, but I will write it anyway. Some people write poems that are more hands-on and more concrete, while I’ve always had a passion for abstract stuff. That’s not to say I don’t like the concrete – I can do both.
I’m looking forward to the journey that we’ll be taking in this blog, and I’m always open to adding other aspiring writers to “The Writer’s Corner” team.
