This year, time just feels like a flooded river rushing by. I didn’t do much wrap-up of the end of the year, and I am ill-prepared for the start of the year. Oh, well! I thought I’d just share a few things about my writing life and what I plan to do here on the blog.
I want to get more solidly reconnected with the Poetry Friday community! I hope to share a poem most Fridays and get around to visiting some blogs.
Inspired by Marcie Flinchum Atkins and her list of writing 20 places in 2020, I want to write poems in 20 different spots throughout the year. I’m open for suggestions from people!
Books, Writing, and What They Mean to Me
I love poetry. Love. It. But the reality is that, aside from 2019!, poetry books are the minority of what I get published. So I want to try to share a bit more regularly about my writing life and process, especially as my two 2020 picture books are a rhyming fictionalized story of a loon’s first summer (based completely on fact, though) and a totally fictional prose story of Clover Kitty, who is overwhelmed by kittygarten.
And that’s it! I haven’t picked a word for 2020. I have made a whole boat-load of both personal goals and writing goals. But I’m just trying to look at three concrete things I hope to do on my blog this year. Thanks for being here!
