New Year Resolutions for 2017

I am looking forward to 2017. I turn 36 years old on January 28, 2017. I am going to write the first draft of my book length memoir Ayesha’s Story: The Schizophrenia Memoirs by the end of 2017. I will keep my Mercer job until December 2017.  I am going to try to get my second chapbook manuscript published by looking in the Poets and Writers magazine classifieds and sending it to two or three chapbook publishers or chapbook contests. I want to finish my children’s writer course by December 2017 and to hopefully publish a children’s book. I will work on my children’s writer course for all of 2017 when I have free time. I am writing poems too. I will see if Cave Canem accepts my chapbook manuscript (2017).
