Migraine Haiku-The Book
I finally put together my migraine haiku book. It is a collection of 100 haiku all written during a migraine about having migraine. It is the biggest writing project I have tackled since this disease has taken over my life, and I’m proud of myself for completing it.
These are bad/pseudo haiku, only following the 5/7/5 syllable rule. The rest of the haiku rules were thrown out the window because to me that is what migraines have done to my life.
I really wanted to capture what it’s like having migraines and how it impacts so many areas of your life, including the full range of emotions. I also took the photos for the front cover (above) and back cover (below).
So if you're interested, check out Migraine Chick CafePress.
