A busy week ahead, in addition to work, I have an open mic night, a poetry society Stanza meeting, a Flash Fiction anthology Launch and an informal meeting connected to the writing job I managed to negotiate back in September, which is due to start next month!
I am missing one of the biggest Performance Poetry Events this month due to a family commitment, however the latter will require less energy and I need to remember the ‘balance’. Otherwise it would be two Performance Poetry events!
Between now and Tuesday I am hoping to learn another set of poems off by heart. I need to write my next 52 poem (this week is about journeys) and I was hoping to write some poetry about journeys this month. I think this challenge may also create the material I take to Stanza on Friday night.
I am also beginning to create a collection of poetry. Busy, busy, busy!
I have started to read the poetry collections that I bought at the end of last year in the Autumn, starting with Be[yond] by Sarah James (the poet whose book launch opened the world of the local circuit of poets and events to me, back in September 2013).
A collection of poems which explore wordplay and the science of language and the universe.
Imagine the possibilities and loving and accepting ourselves, feel good that I took a leap of faith last year and renewed my life over.
