Life begins at forty-three

That’s eighteen months from now.

So what do I do ‘til then?

Sit here and twiddle my thumbs

Or go quietly round the bend.

Do I take up origami

Or ju-jitsu in the nude.

Life begins at forty-three?

Sod it, I’ll start anew.

Whatever it is you feel,

Whatever it is you see,

Well that mirror is reflecting you wrong,

Because you just look good to me.

Mischief in mind,

Just having fun while he’s young,

A wolf on the prowl.

Am I Charlie?

I had one rule when I started this blog no politics, because I wanted people to like what I wrote and by extension like me – in a nutshell I was scared of attracting the wrong type of attention.

And that is pretty much how I have felt since the terrible events in Paris earlier this week. I have liked and shared beautiful, poignant cartoons and articles on various social media platforms to show my abhorrence for the events and my support for a free press. And I have claimed that “Je suis Charlie”. But there was one image I couldn’t post, a picture I saw of the covers of the Charlie Hebdo issues that had been the alleged “Justification” that had made the magazine offices a “legitimate” target.

The year of not being sad

Candle&Quill (1)

I didn’t originally plan to share my goals for 2015 here and I’m only doing so in a limited way by telling you my writing and creative goals.

This is because I’m viewing the future as an open vista, with many different paths open to me (which is scary, but exciting) and it is only in terms of my creative aims that I have firm targets which I need to stop prevaricating about and just do.

  1. Get the first draft of the novel I’m working on finished.
  2. Write more short fiction. I’m enjoying the poetry infection I’m suffering from but I need to stop viewing fiction as being only something of 50,000 words +. Short fiction is good for me as an aspiring writer.
  3. If on a particular day I’m not working towards either 1. or 2. but am instead writing poetry, that does not mean I’m failing to hit my targets – because above all the target is to be CREATIVE.
  4. Posting work on my blog is good, but I submitted no pieces of work to magazines or competitions in 2014. I need to continue to challenge myself in the coming and that means submitting fiction and poems to other outlets in 2015.
  5. Continue learning to play the ukulele in 2015 that means practicing every day – but remember you are learning for fun, which means wrong notes are fun. Perfection is overrated.
  6. Take that art class, it’ll be fun, messy, but fun.
  7. Above all, whatever I am doing in 2015 I should enjoy it.
