What are your artistic goals?
I just read advice on what one should do for day 2 in order to become a better writer, or rather, a writer with a better platform.
For day 2: one should make a list of one's goals.
I like writing down my goals. I just don't like doing them.
The top of my desk is covered with lists of must-dos. I am sure I must do so many things. I am equally sure I won't . . .
The best made plans of mice and men
swing aft and forth
and windward and hard to lee
But I suppose it's true . . .
as the best laid men say
foresight sometimes . . .
But I do feel for that mouse
for whom the present only toucheth . . .
But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain;
The best-laid schemes o' mice an 'men
Gang aft agley,
An'lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!
Still thou art blest, compar'd wi' me
The present only toucheth thee:
But, Och! I backward cast my e'e.
On prospects drear!
An' forward, tho' I canna see,
I guess an' fear!
