2014 has began and it is time to start a fresh with the writing, if you are anything like us here at WoPo you will find that during the year your poetic focus drifts. January is the perfect time to fix this!

Look at your daily commitments, and slot yourself in for a writing space – each and every day. It only has to be five minutes but it has to happen. This will help you get into a routine. You may not write much at first but as the days pass you will find it easier to slip into the writing zone.

Ideas will then likely start occurring when it is not your writing time, to deal with this text yourself the idea or carry a small pocket note book to jot things down in. If you are stuck for ideas, do not fret, there are always plenty of exercises on this blog to help you.

HAPPY NEW YEAR – now get writing 🙂
