So this week has been for new things. Firstly, I have written some poetry. Murder poetry. I don’t usually write poetry as I prefer first person prose. But I was inspired by a friend last year to draft something and then just had the inspiration now to flesh it out and actually do something with it. Poetry is strange and I have no idea if it is any good or not.
Secondly, I am writing without editing. Usually I edit as I go but I am trying a different method. This one involves writing it out as a first draft and then revising it when complete. I am not sure how well this will work for me but we shall see. I have limited time at the moment and am hoping this helps to defeat the procrastination I often fall into when editing during. So far all it is doing is causing weird mild anxiety. But we shall see if it pays off when I am done.
This coming week I hope to get a lot more writing done as there are 2 deadlines approaching.
