"I want to make a New Year’s prayer, not a resolution. I’m praying for courage."--Susan Sontag, diary entry from 1972
2018: A year for finishing things. Dissertation. Viva. A short story. A poem. A chapter of a novelish thing. I hope to carry this energy into the new year.
Also - I want to read more poetry and difficult novels; to throw more house parties; to get my driver's license; to plant things; to get 100 rejection letters for pieces I submit (cuz it means I'm trying, right?!); to make my house more like a home.
