Happy New Year!
And Happy Quick Kick January.
You’re looking at Day One of Quickly’s thirty-one day poetry (and short form prose) non-challenge.
No prize, no pressure, just a prompt every day of this long two-faced month.
Write. Visit. Talk amongst yourselves. Come back tomorrow for more.
So. With the preface over, here’s QKJ #1 Make it New
Now, if you’re still doing New Year’s Resolutions (admit it, if you dare) you can pick one of the ways in which you’d like to make yourself new.
Or, if you’re a demon for punishment, think about changing the world.
Or. Choose one of these and turn it into something NOW.
