I can never make up my mind when it comes to resolutions. Sometimes I try to plan my entire year within the first month of the new year and other times, I can't even map out where my mind has been until the last week of it. So, where to this year?
First, I find myself saying this is either the last year I'm writing or the first year I'm not. Since I am on this blog, the latter part can't be true but, the former part? Unlikely but I am looking into it.
I have this desire to see if I can publish a chapbook or two. It's something I've never attempted, even though I have collections in mind. You see, I'm scared to take this step and I always have been. Yet I really want to progress. In fact, I'm thinking about not submitting anymore because of the lack of progress, something I do to myself.
So, this year is the "attempt-a-chapbook" year. At least that, for now. Maybe, if I'm brave. Now's good.
Good luck with the chapbook! You should definitely pursue it. :)ReplyDelete
I say go for it! In the end we regret most the chances we don't take. :)ReplyDelete
I will probably try it, though I find my mind already whirling with excuses. Perhaps, if made into part of my MFA plan...ReplyDelete
