Direction Shift

So, I’m aware that I’ve been talking about this whole publication business for quite some time, now. After partaking in NaPoWriMo, I gathered a lot of poetry for a collection which would be silly not to utilise! My direction down this long and winding road has changed yet again, and I’m now going to be… Continue reading Direction Shift

Road to Publication | Blog 3

Perhaps the biggest rambling thought that crosses my mind about this project is: Is my work even any good? Writers seem to consistently struggle with self-doubt, and we never feel too great about what we create. We are, after all, our own worst critics. Alongside the lack of time I seem to find nowadays, this… Continue reading Road to Publication | Blog 3
