Today is the day we think about goals for this new year. Think about it, what do you want 2019 to bring to you? What do you want to make happen?
I was blessed to publish my second book of poetry, publish 17 individual poems and hold my first reading. Yet, there will be more to come in 2019.
My goals for 2019:
Set up my writing coach boot camps and anthologies (more on this later)
Convert my poem series Medusa to prose (novella). I started work on this yesterday
Finish the Fleeting Lights, a book that I started long, long time ago
Publish the family cookbook (this has been sent to the publisher)
Complete poem collection, Beyond the Pink
Publish a minimum of 5 blog posts a week (been slacking here).
How about you?
My new chapbook, Weathered Fragments, Weathered Souls, will be out by the end of March. To help mark this occasion, I will be posting excerpts from the work through out the month of March.
Look out for it! Details on when it is available for purchase will be posted soon!
From “The Decree”
Revelations of secrets’ past blinds the
sight in the present, as the mind shifts the
blame to soothe the past for the present’s use.
My book has finally arrived! Get your copy here at Politics and Prose!
From “A Mother’s Humble Plea”
Humility rests not with the weak, but
with the strong, who knows when best to show it,
for she knows it is its own sacrifice.
After days of not being able to post…the excerpts continue…
From “A Mother’s Cry”
Power rests in those who give its wrath, not
in those who suffer and cower from it.
From “The Gray Ones”
He who tries to circumvent his sentence
will still be guilty for crimes committed
no matter his attempts to forget them.
From “Athena’s Vengeance”
The best punishment is often one that
allows the thief to steal the forbidden
and think he is wise for it, until he
is caught and punishment is a surprise
