Happy New Year (unless it is already too late to say that?)
I have actually made some resolutions this year to do with writing. It can be easy to wriggle out of working on my own work with currently 4 jobs and general exhaustion! I’m hoping this will help.
This year I am going to:
- Submit more of my work to journals
- Write at least once a month (I want my goals to be achievable!) Quality not quantity 🙂
- Focus on going to more open mic sessions (I’m flat searching this year to move into the city of Manchester, or at least closer, which will definitely help. Currently I have to have the motivation to get a train and a bus or a willing driver!)
I’ve not started too badly out of the blocks – I’ve had 3 poems out with The Pangolin Review already (which I actually wrote 1 and a half years ago, so it is good to find a home for them) and you can read them here.
I’ve also applied for a Pamphlet Editing day with The Poetry Business – wish me luck!
Do you have any writing resolutions and are you sticking to them so far?
