Hello, Happy New Year and Happy Poetry Friday! I feel like I have not posted in ages and ages. It has been nice having the whole family home during the holidays, but I am looking forward to routine returning when school and work begins again next week.
The doctor may have finally figured out why I have been so gosh darn tired lately (other than having two younger kids).
It’s nothing serious and easily fixable, so nothing to worry about. I won’t know for sure for a few months, but I am hoping it all gets resolved because my writing has suffered.
With the new year comes new goals. I sometimes feel bashful about admitting that I set New Years resolutions because so many people seem to roll their eyes. But I’ll take any chance I get to revisit and reevaluate my goals and progress. Onward and upward, I say. And, while I do not always accomplish my goals in the year, I do regularly check in with them.
I always set out to get 100 rejections within the year. I have never hit that goal, but it does get me to submit submit submit! I got 26 rejections last year, but I also had 4 poems published. So again this year, I will strive for those 100 rejections and maybe I’ll get a few “yes’s (yeses?) along the way.
I am hoping to get ga poem a week written too. I am in awe of those who write a poem a day. I also want to just have more fun writing poetry. I find that every time I sit down to write a poem I think it has to be all serious. And it takes me awhile to get past that because I am just not that serious of a person. I like funny silly things. So I want to write more poetry like that.
I was trying to find a good poem to share today, but I absolutely loved the Maya Angelou poem that Carol shared over on her blog. So if you haven’t had a chance, go and check it out. She is hosting Poetry Friday this week too, so there are all sorts of great stuff to see. Here’s to a great 2020!
