Daydreamer- Themes and Format



With each of my books, I liked to keep an overall theme and with Daydreamer, I took inspiration heavily from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I’ve always been fascinated by the Green World- the mischievous and dark world the lovers in the play enter where there were fairies and a sense of loss and confusion. I wanted to portray that in my book. each chapter is the “Daydreamer” traveling as she finds herself and she happens to tumble into the Green World. I wanted to convey a sense of loss and confusion as the lovers did and I pushed myself to write poems talking about fairies and mythology. with inflorescence, I used the transition of a seedling to a flower as a symbol of my childhood to my adulthood, with night-bloomer, the phases of the moon to convey the roller coaster of emotions I go through and the trails and challenges set before me but with Daydreamer, I wanted to keep an undertone of hope and understanding. Even if the “Daydreamer” was lost, she still had the stars to guide her ⭐️



i never could decide how I wanted to format my poetry-
short, long, prose, something crazyyyy like c c cummings so I decided to do a little bit of everything. with inflorescence I was scared to step out of the trend- the milk & honey, keep it short and sweet and poignant in three lines. with night-bloomer, I stepped away from it more and focused a lot on prose. with daydreamer, I did a little bit of everything. I added a little short poems throughout the chapters, prose for dayzzz, and I had a little fun with the lines. i feel more confident with my writing now and actually am happy that it’s not like all the ones on the shelves. I used to be more self-conscious but 🤷‍♀️
