Poetry and general writing

Hey everyone, how are you?

Yesterday I managed to put a new poem up on this site, if you haven’t seen it yet please check it out. It is about something that I am passionate about saving.

I’ve been spending time experimenting with how I open stories, what best suits my style for setting a scene. As well as developing characters. My aim towards the end of this week and over the weekend is to really get my head down and thrash out a draft of a short story. I’m not going to give myself any excuses, if it’s not finished by Monday then I will be more than annoyed with myself.

The reason that I have to be so strict with myself is because I get very easily distracted. I had to do the same when it came to coursework and exam revision when I was at university. What I aim to do is have the characters and the plot mapped out, so that I don’t have that excuse not to produce anything over the weekend. I think one of the things that I worry about (and trust me there is a lot) is that I will never finish anything, and because of that never amount to anything as a writer. It is a real hear palpitation type worry of mine, that I am just throwing my life away.

I will probably write it by hand first and then type it up next week, but it will be put under the ‘prose’ part of the site, and I will let you all know over twitter and a blog post that it is there, if you want to read it.

Thank you for reading, and I hope that you have a good day.
