September Writing Accomplishments

I had a busy September! Here’s a look at what I accomplished writing-wise:

  • Wrote 43 poems
  • Submitted 10 poems (3 rejected, 7 pending)
  • Received a poetry acceptance from a submission a few months ago
  • Had a poem appear at A Handful of Stones
  • Completed my chapbook manuscript, entitled We’re Smaller Than We Think We Are
  • Submitted the chapbook to two contests (1 rejected, 1 pending)
  • Started Daily Text I Like
I’m please with what I accomplished! Especially getting the manuscript finished (with thanks to the help of the fabulous Abe Louise Young). I’ve been working toward that goal for a few years now, and it’s finally coming true.
Here are my goals for October:
  • Continue to write at least one poem a day
  • Continue submitting individual poems and the chapbook manuscript
  • Start keeping track of the poetry collections/chapbooks I read to get a sense of what I like, which poets inspire me, and what doesn’t draw me in. I want to do this to get a better sense of my inspirations and models.
  • Start keeping track of the writing guides I use to see which are the most useful
  • And, in non-writing things, I am going to attempt October Unprocessed, in which I vow to not eat any processed foods for the entire month. This is going to get interesting.
