The second focus was to try to stretch myself as a writer. After 12 years, I was getting in a rut. I started to write a few flash fiction pieces here and there. They aren't for publication at this point, simply meant to explore new directions. I also embraced the ten day writing challenge in the book Every Day is a Poem by Jacqueline Suskin. I can't say enough how this experience affected the way I view how I share my thoughts. I am hoping to work my way through the challenges in the book again this year and continue to work on some of the skills the exercises showcased.
For 2022 I am seriously raising the bar on challenging myself as a writer, but that story is for another day! If you want to see a final recap of my Marilyn's 2021 Bucket List Challenge click HERE. Want to see my new list for 2022? Well you'll just have to check back. That does live on Jan. 11th!
