On November 21, YouTuber and singer Gabbie Hanna revealed to fans that she has finally signed a book deal for her second poetry book.
This comes two years after her first book, Adultolescence, which was released back in 2017, a book that is comprised of poems that details her life struggles.
The day before the announcement, Gabbie revealed on an Instagram Story that she'd been "really hammering down and working on this book". She also revealed her problem of how she doesn't really know when she's finally "done" with it.
I "The problem is I don't know when it's done."
I "Like, I can put in as many poems or as little poems as I want. There's not a narrative, it's not a story."
Gabbie is referring to the fact that her book is comprised of separate poems, so it doesn't exactly have a beginning, middle or end. Because of this, it's hard for her to know whether it's done yet.
I "It's hard to say like "OK, it's done now. Because I have endless ideas [...] But when is it too much? And when is it too little?"
Cheekily, she ends with this:
I "I could be done right now! Am I done? (smiles cheekily at the camera)."
Fun Fact: Whenever Gabbie gets a thought or an inkling, she writes it down as notes that could be used for her book. However, a lot of the time, these notes were written "under the influence". She hilariously reveals that one of her notes says, "Relationships are like popping pimples".
Why did it take Gabbie two years to sign a book deal?
Gabbie explains that although she'd been working on this second book for two years, she purposely didn't sign any book deals because of the deadline that came with it. She learnt this the hard way after signing a deal for her first book.
I "I hate having a deadline when it comes to poetry, illustration, artistic s*** because it's hard to force that stuff [...] It's hard to force poetry."
What can fans expect from Gabbie's new book?
Gabbie explains that she only writes "emo stuff" because she finds it hard to write about love or inspiring content. She reveals that she'd been working on trying to pull out this other side of her for the past two days. Unfortunately, though, she says it hasn't been successful.
