Usually I’d post this during the final days of December, right before the New Year. Alas, December 31 was on a Sunday. And I’ve become a stickler in keeping with my posting schedule. So I compromised to have this post published right as the old year ends and the new year begins.
But before I start regaling you with my final progress report and 2018 writing plans, I just want to say…
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Now, in 2017 I made a lot of plans. Some I was on goal, others I was not. In particular in not writing any new stories until at least I’ve completed one or two of my current WIPs. But I did write 30 new poems in NaPoWriMo this past April. And I did get two poems, both written during NaPoWriMo, published in an online magazine.
Anyways, here’s a look at my writing progress from September to December. And what my writing plan for 2018 will be.
First, let me say…
2017 comes to an end this weekend. And it has been a doozy year of epic, history making proportions. For example, #MeToo, the fires on the west Coast. The devastation of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands after hurricane Irma and Maria. Black women being responsible for voting in Doug Jones, etc.
Before I begin this year’s countdown of popular blog posts on my blog, let’s first take a moment of silence….
Now which posts has made my top ten in 2017? Let’s start our countdown, from least to most views, with #10:
Happy Monday everyone! How are my WriMo’s doing? It’s now week three of NaNoWriMo and if I want to make goal I’ll have to step it up this week because Thanksgiving next week. And we all know preparations for this particular holiday starts days, a week or two before.
So how did I do last week, week two of NaNoWriMo? Let’s see.
Today’s post is a poetry review of Ghosts of My Own Choosing by Terri Simon. But first I’d like to give thanks to Terri for giving me this opportunity. At least two or more years ago I thought of writing poetry reviews on my blog. Alas, I’ve yet to have that honor until now. So thanks again Terri and to my followers, I hope you enjoy the review.
