#VSS365 Prompt: Paralyse

I’ve been looking for ways to increase my reach on social media without having to pay for advertising. The #VSS365 tag gets a remarkable amount of engagement over time, and so this seems like a good opportunity to see if I can pick up an audience from my own work, unprompted.

There will also be a graphic when I do this from the poem, which provides useful Canva practice 😀

Hashtag Poetry Poem #57

Every weekday in 2022 I’ll post six lines of unique poetry on Twitter, and then archive it here for posterity with some additional observations. Here is Poem #57:

I deadlifted the heaviest I’ve ever managed today. I was rejected from a magazine I REALLY want to be in. It was the best of times, and the worst, or it was just Monday… you decide.

This Week, I Will be Mostly…

I was *supposed* to be doing something this week. It was something I was REALLY looking forward to. However, it has been cancelled.

It is always tough when plans change at short notice. Everything was organized, and I’d spent a fair bit of time managing the week so that the maximum amount of time could be spent working. In the absence of this now, the decision has been made to use the time I’d booked constructively doing other things. That means a combination of poetry, catching up on my backlog, and planning projects for the future. It would be foolish not to make the most of the situation I find myself in with the spaces already created.

Inevitably, not everything works out the way you would hope in life. The measure of my progress as an adult is now how such situations are dealt with. It will cause issues, as these things undoubtedly do, but intend to do my utmost to keep those things to a minimum. Let this be a way of moving forward in all things, and making positive changes to the whole of my creative practice.

If all else fails, I can eat crisps and play video games instead 😛

The fatigue yesterday was earned. We flipped the script and did lots of things differently, and the result was HUGELY satisfactory. Plus, I’ve rediscovered a coveted video game from 2002, and we’re gonna play it again from scratch 😀 RESULT!

It should have been a disaster after yesterday’s double rejection… and yet the absolute opposite is true. Today has been an utter triumph. I am both pleased and proud to state I’ve written the best thing out of my brain all year thus far. It is a GREAT day to be a poet 😀

Spent this morning hitting stuff with boxing gloves at the Gym and making my brain feel less as if it were under siege. Nobody says this stuff is easy, after all, and it is a particularly tough time mentally for so many people right now…

Slightly later than hoped, it’s been an up and down 24 hours. However, undoubtedly, not going backwards yet, which is always a bonus…

I am seeing changes to my body that, in some cases, predate the birth of my kids. This is thanks to some remarkably hard effort on my part when exercising. It is all worth it, and the benefits are really beginning to manifest…
