Thanks Penelope. I wish you the same.

I agree, that level of acceptance is very good.

I listened to a podcast recently (possibly Poetry Says) where a poet had refocused their thinking on aiming for 100 rejections a year and that this saw them working harder , producing better work and getting published more. So I am considering perhaps aiming for 50 rejections next year and letting the acceptances manage themselves.

I think that as my confidence increases care about the publishing will diminish. In fact I already felt this midway through the project.

Congratulations on the India publication.

It would be lovely to meat you again.

Thanks Chris.

On the manuscript/ first book, it seemed to be an important thing early on. Now I feel that I just need to work more on craft, becoming more consistent. Wrote some good stuff this year but also some work that was pure exercise.

Hope you have a productive 2017

Sometimes you're writing even when you're not - I am sure that beach will find its way into a couple more of your poems in the future.
