Happy Sunday, Wordsmiths!
I go back to work tomorrow (Monday 7th) but, before I do, I wanted to tell you a little about how I’ve begun to kickstart my own writing again in 2019.
I want to share something with you and show you that, if I can do it, you can do the same and kickstart your writing habits again in 2019 (if you haven’t already started!).
Since 2010, I’ve been writing poetry. Like many of you, my journey started with my first Creative Writing workshop. This was part of my English degree, but yours may have been in your local area with a writing network or group, and, like you, I haven’t looked back since!
I’m now a Dr of words (thanks to a PhD completed at Loughborough University), have over 5 years’ experience teaching and facilitating workshops on both Creative Writing and Poetry, and have 6 years’ experience of running a writing and publishing platform in The Student Wordsmith (now Wordsmith_HQ!). It’s been a dream, but now I want to use my skills, experience and passion to further support you.
In the video below, I share a little bit of my weekend with you, including how I kickstarted my writing again, plus I read you a poem that I wrote when I got back into my writing on Friday. I really hope you enjoy it.
Next Thursday (10th January), I'll share with you the first tool that will help you to set your big hairy writing goals (those ones that you've been telling me all about!) and to maintain that all-important writing routine - and all for free!
I’d love to hear from you about how you’ve kickstarted your writing in 2019 or, if you haven’t done so yet, how you might intend to do so.
I’d also LOVE to get your thoughts on the poem I shared here with you.
Simply HIT REPLY to send me an email, or comment below to tell me what you think.
I look forward to hearing from you.
