Reintroducing Me

Reintroducing Me

Beauty is the opposite of perfection – it’s about confidence, charisma, and character.” Anonymous

2020 has opened so many doors and opportunities for me as a poet and as a writer.

I would like to thank my loyal readers and followers especially those who have been with me in WordPress since 2013.

I can’t thank you all enough for the love and support you have given me and my poetry. You have inspired me to take my work to another level. WordPress was my virtual self for so long. For years I went by the name Michnavs- a name I gave my blog. I started writing with just one follower.

I was Michnavs for my followers. They weren’t even sure if that is my name or just an assigned pen name.

Just Michnavs.
No name.
No profile.
No contact details.
No photo at all.

But despite my anonymity, I was well received and well-loved by many.

It was in the year 2019 when I finally decided to come out in the open, so to say, after my first book “After Rain Skies: A Million Stars” was published in Malaysia.
And then the rest they say is history. In over a year I published two books with some of my poems published in different international literary journals and magazines.

I also produced instructional videos and visual poetry to reach a wider audience. It was a huge success too. I am very grateful to all who showed their love and support; not only to my written works but to all the other media platforms I engaged with.

In 2020 pandemic happened. People stayed at home. And I thought book sales and readership will drop. But I was wrong. Ebooks became an in-demand reading platform for book lovers and literary enthusiasts. And that was when it hit on me – “I am famous” (lol)

Sending you all love across the world – to all my beloved readers, followers, and fellow poets.

P.S.

Special love to all my WP friends. I would have not made it all through this years without your support and love.

Mich
