Musings

Stocktake.

<10,000 words from a first draft.
Five days from finishing my PCWC residency.
Four days from PCWC’s Publication Event.
Three days from my last workshop as Writer in Residence.
Three children and one husband forgetting my face.
Two consultation appointments to book.
Two days until applications to be a part of a 2019 writers’ festival are due.
One day until my next full-day workshop runs…
But <10,000 words from a first draft!

“It is a sad fact about our culture that a poet can earn much more money writing or talking about his art than he can by practicing it.” – W.H. Auden (via Authors Publish)

Four slow blinks.
Three shoulder rolls.
Two long sighs.

<10,000 words from a first draft.
One determined writer.
