2021 and all that!!!

Having read a post from my fellow writer (and future son in law) I thought that I should look at my future plans for the year.
If I reflect on where I was this time in 2020 I had made plans to publish some more of my work and start on some further work.
Having been influenced by my fellow performers in various open mic and spoken word events, this was where my path was going.

Instead “Things never turn out how you expected.”
Now we are in 2021
“with the smoking wreck of 2020 at our backs” “In 2021 intend to do the following as an author and blogger:
Read and Review 4 Books

Publish at least one book

Complete the play which I started to write during lockdown
Interview way more folks on here
Sell more of my previous books by promoting them better on my Facebook.
Sort out my Twitter
Link in with my fellow authors and comment on their work
Promotion of my fellow writers.
I will also take better notice of Lee Hall whose post influenced me to write this so I have a plan

Thanks for the quotes which I acknowledge are yours but sum up how this year has been for us writers

He trained as a both a General and Mental Health Nurse in the South East of the United Kingdom in the mid 1980’s and has worked in various roles over the past 30 years. His first authored article in 2007 was jointly written about the need to share positive research based practice amongst care teams locally which was then published in a professional journal. He published “Mild Musings May Mitigate My Mentality” which was his first collection of poems in 2018. He has subsequently published MERRING or is it MRS GREN? Having written sporadically over the years (usually for friends and family) he has been writing more consistently over the past two years and has begun to recite his poetry at various Open Mic nights and Spoken Word events. He is often found ‘scribbling’ and then performing what he has just written. He recently has also been collaborating with a jazz composer by writing lyrics which have been put to music. His interests include watching live music, trying to play the guitar (still project in progress) and quizzing. He also likes to watch TV; mostly factual documentaries, comedy and quiz shows He also needs to read more and swears that he will do so very soon as he has a pile of books to read. He also ‘hangs out’ with members of the local drama club although he has no plans to act but is partial to the odd pint of orange juice and lemonade!! He follows rugby and can sometimes be found cheering his team on (London Irish) whether they win or lose.
