I am up and down as far as staying with my 500 words a day…currently down, but my Master’s course has begun and is time consuming. Yes, I know that is a simple excuse. Ah, well.
I want to update you on a couple of new blogs that I have put up. The first, January Mindful Writing Challenge, is in response to Fiona Robyn’s mindful writings project that took place in January of this year. The second, 2013 NaHaiWriMo, is currently in progress. It is made up of my haikus for NaHaiWriMo.
Poetry is currently my priority in writing, although the year began with a focus on flash fiction. It is an ebb and flow between genres with me. In an effort to beef up my productivity (and fun!), I am ordering Wingbeats: Exercises and Practice in Poetry. It was recommended by a favorite poet of mine, Diane Lockward. I will let you know what I think of it in a couple of weeks!
