Happy Tuesday, folks. Time to put your seat backs and tray tables in their full and upright positions. Share a little of yourself with us and we promise to do the same.
Finally, the warm weather has arrived in New England! With the return of warm weather comes my summer schedule at work.
I think the biggest challenge during the last few months has been the loss of my work from home day. Now that my college is on its flexible summer schedule, I’ll work four longer days to earn one day off. It makes such a difference to have a day where I’m not on the road, and able to get a few things done for myself during the work week. Yay!
Can’t believe it’s June and I’ve only written six poems this year. It’s so unlike me. Well, this may be the year I go for quality not quantity.
This weekend, I’m planning another mini writer’s retreat with a friend. I want to be efficient with my time, so I’m in the process of getting organized, doing lots of free writes, and reading works by other poets. I will also start revisions on my second manuscript.
This week’s mini to-do list:
1. Write a new poem (I have several drafts that need work)
2. Work on manuscript #2
3. Figure out goals for writers retreat
4. Write two articles for upcoming projects
5. Get some sleep—adjust to new, earlier work schedule
