2019 has only just begun, the ink on the New Year Resolutions barely dry. It is too soon to celebrate the long-term successes, or bewail the failure, of those good intentions.
In general terms my resolutions for the year are: to blog regularly; write everyday; aim to have something published every month; to join a critique group.
|A philosophical take on the prompt “swing”|
Let me share what I have begun.
Blog regularly: Well, here I am, blogging! Week one achieved.
Write everyday: #vss365 Each morning I have written a tweet-length very short story using the daily prompt. It’s a good warm-up exercise. Six days achieved, only 359 to go.
|Paragraph Planet, 4th January 2019.|
Publication: Paragraph Planet publishes a different 75 word story every day. In the past I aimed for one per month, and for a while was successful but then let my submissions slip. My first submission of 2019, made on 1st January, was published on the 4th. Eleven more needed.
Critique group - I have reconnected with some experienced writing buddies and have already shared my first story, and received some helpful suggestions. Achieved!
Now all I need to do is keep up the good work.
