Like Selena Gomez, I’ve been known to enjoy sipping whiskey neat. Unlike Selena Gomez, I don’t have a single at the top of the charts to celebrate while tickling my taste buds with a good glass of whiskey. My little book of poetry will most likely never garner anywhere near the same level of success. That being said, I think I’ll have a celebratory drink just the same.
It’s taken a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to get this far, so there’s no need to be bashful about celebrating. Indeed, the time has come to raise a glass of my new favorite Irish whiskey, Writers’ Tears. As I sip, I’ll reminisce on what I have accomplished thus far, and, perhaps, shed a tear over all of the blood, sweat, and tears yet to come.
Before I get too far ahead of myself, though, I believe there was a top 10 list of poetry that I was in the midst of completing. Here are numbers 10-7: THE PAST, LIFE CONTINUES—UNCONQUERED, THE TALL FIRS ARE DANCING TODAY, and FROZEN HEART. In the coming weeks, I plan to complete the list with numbers six through one. After that, I imagine the time will be ripe for another sip.

Dear Cody, Congrats for all your plans and your first publication! Unfortunately I don’t know anything about Kindlebooks and I ‘m too lazy to learn about it, because I prefer reading a book, touching the pages, holding it in my hands etc. But every beginning is tough enough. So you’ve merited a good glass of whiskey anyhow! Keep your courage for the things to come! And cheers! I’ve always liked what I read here on your site. Kind regards, Petra
Thank you, Petra. It makes me happy to hear that you like what you read on my site. Cheers to you as well!
The blood and sweat that you shed for achieving something fetches you your dreams, turns into fine wine in due course of time, allowing you to enjoy it with a neat peg of whiskey 😁. Congratulations
Thank you Shreya. Cheers!
