I just heard from Eddie Walsh at Emerald writing workshop that my story – ‘One night with you’ has made it on to the long list. It was Patsy who put me in touch with Emerald from her blog. Just enjoying a cup of cappucino before our home made soup.
This time of the year, I start thinking about my aims for next year, or sometimes I make a slogan or poem to keep me on track. I’m thinking along the lines of ‘just write – right!’ for 2012. It’s not brainboxing difficult to do. Just pick up a pen, paper, and write words on the page. So, I think the year 2012 will be a time of more words, and less daydreaming and doodling, (which is my favourite). I’m happy with the amount of articles and letters and even some fiction that I’ve had published this year. I do think it’s important to be realistic with what you can do though. I’m going to aim for 500 wds a day, that’s 3,000 wds a week. I know that doesn’t add up, but making slight allowances it does to me.
What aims have you made so far? Eating that lovely pudding wouldn’t be difficult would it?
