The Challenge-Year Two
So the first year has come and gone.. and the project continues. I have decided to make it more challenging and do weekly themes. I will spend the month doing themes for three weeks and the fourth week will be freestyle/random subject, so I don’t burn out. And to add to the challenge and get me motivated… Lets see if I can get five of my Year One poems published.
Weekly Theme #1…. Entanglement/Entangling
So here is the story. I have been a long time writer until recently. I have had some transitions in life (enter motherhood and relationship) that have caused me to be a little preoccupied, and resulted in me losing focus and to stop writing. Now the muses in my head, they have still been yakking away and I still get bursts of inspiration but quickly forget them. Well recently the transitions have taken a sharp turn (should have taken the left at Albuquerque and cue motherhood with gray hair, disastrous breakup, and shattered friendships), and I realized I really missed writing and right now I need it more than ever. So this is what I plan to do… write a poem a day… no matter how gimmicky, depressing, terrible it may be.. and maybe with a lot of thought and dedication.. I can get back to submitting and getting published again.
So here is to a new journey filled with words, themes and teen angst (because it never dies no matter how old you are)…. and away we go…
