Finally Writing Again, a Little

It's been very quiet around here. I've stopped writing ever since I started interning at my church. That has been amazing. I am, however, now slowly chipping away at one project. I've mentioned it before. I'm getting closer to publishing it and I'm excited about a new way I want it to be read. It started out as a collection of haiku poems about various topics. Now it is going to be this:
This is a book of 108 Haikus that help you explore our world by guessing what they are about. What is a haiku? A haiku is a poem made up of three lines, each with a specific amount of syllables used. The pattern is five, seven, five. The first and third line have five syllables, and the second line has seven. In this book I have divided the haikus into different topics. Each topic will have simple instructions on how to guess what the haikus are alluding to. Think of each haiku as a set of hints. If you get stumped, ask the people around you first. This book would be great to read with a group as you travel. If you are still all stumped try searching the internet for words in the haiku. Enjoy!
I tried it out at dinner with my family and they really enjoyed listening to the different haikus and guessing what they were about. I think it will be a fun book to have while traveling. That's it for now. I'll be sure to post links for it once it's available for sale. Maybe I should try and hurry and get it written so I can give it out for free right now for families to entertain each other with while we're all stuck in our homes because of the Coronavirus. Here's the cover:
