I know I am not alone this holiday season in feeling pressed for time, so this post is short but I wanted to do a couple of things.
I am quickly approaching the end of my first 365 day writing challenge. December 29th will be a full year! My next post will be a look back but also be about looking forward to new challenges/goals.
I’ll review some of the successes with this challenge I am finishing, but also some of pitfalls I’ve seen as well.
I will also outline my plans for the upcoming year. I will be tweaking my guidelines for the new challenge, but sticking with a daily writing commitment. My plans for the upcoming year also include some new direction for this blog.
I hope you come back next week and check it out. 🙂
I also want to share that I returned to my writer’s group today after missing meetings for quite a few months. I missed for a lot of reasons, not the least of which was just staying crazy busy. But if I am honest, there were a few other issues that made me reluctant to invest my time in preparing for and attending the group.
However, I was happy to see that the structure and guidelines for the group have been revisited and I am very pleased with the direction the group is headed. I am therefore renewing my commitment to the group. I will make an effort to attend consistently again. I will also begin submitting my novel for critique that has just gotten lost in editing stages. I could definitely get some help wrapping it up. Hopefully that will help get me to a finished product in the next six months.
I am not sure how much poetry I will be writing in the new year but today I am sharing a little one before I change things up. I hope you enjoy. And hopefully you’ll come back for next weeks updates. Have a great week!
There you are,
a sigh of relief
He drank in
the sight of her
as if seeing her
that had before
or even broken –
in his world
with just one look
at his lover’s face.
There you are,
