Five days into the new year, how's it going, friends? I just submitted my first poetry piece to Poetica - it was a call about motherhood, and let me tell you, I have a few things I still need to get off my chest - ha! I'm taking part in two different blog tours, both with reviews this month. So even though I set up my Goodreads challenge for 25 books this year, I'm ready to hit the ground running. I don't have goals this month, just to continue to write poetry daily and continue to read what I can. If you're on Instagram, follow me @leilatualla for a daily dose of poems!
Happy reading, have fun writing and let's make this our best year yet!
Well, I "only" had two November goals and I failed them both. *sigh.
1.) NaNoWriMo - 100 poems for my the Token Asian writes poetry collection. - ummm I wrote 10?
2.) be inspired and read poetry! I'll be reading through the poetry books that I bought and reviewing the authors that have inspired and supported me. - I'm down to three poetry books, so yay?!
I don't have a whole lot of things going on as far as writing goals this month. I will continue to read as much as I can and review those that I already have. Excited for next year, though! I enjoyed reading up on new authors and reviewing. I've been fortunate to have 2 different contributing blogger experiences that I'm thinking about taking 2018 into a freelance writing work. Who knows. But as we wind down for the year, I am thankful for you all who have kept up with me and my writing journey.
Stay on the course.
Stop dreaming and start striving.
I drink too much coffee, read too many books, and in between raising miracle babies, I find time to write.
