Admittedly, I set myself to accomplish more than I did in June and July. But with the return of school for the kids by month's end and getting back to a reliable routine, all will be right with world very soon. This month, I'm making a conscious effort to focus my attention back to poetry. It's no fun writing about not writing. Kinda silly, really.
Last night, I participated in the #poetparty on Twitter and felt myself happy and relieved to be thinking about poetry in such detail. (Search for the #poetparty hashtag on Twitter to read the convo. Last night's topic: submitting and publishing poetry.)
I go back to work today after a week's vacation, so it does feel like August is the start of something.
I'm much more productive if I have a narrow focus, so my overall August priorities are really simple: eat well/exercise, save money, focus on poetry.
August Poetry To-Do List (in no particular order)
- Write four poems
- Submit to four journals/web zines
- Write three articles for upcoming projects
- Continue to revise manuscript #2
