It's an adjective that means substance of a new kind, unprecedented, novel, uncommon, unheard of, new (especially in freshness).
It was like when Coca-Cola tried to reinvent itself back in 1985 and came out with New Coke. They were hoping to create something fresh for their consumers, but unfortunately it was not well received and three months later, Coke went back to its old formula. Even though their attempt at creating something new failed, I applaud the company for trying to shake things up.
My plan this year is to do something similar with my writing life. I intend to change it, make it new and fresh. But unlike Coca-Cola, my plan will work
I have reflected on my life as a writer over the past decade and began evaluating what has worked and what hasn't. Now I am in the process of figuring out how to reinvent myself. (Maybe the first step is to change my name to Kainós Kerrie).
One new thing is this blog. We have a new blogging team and after a couple years away, I am once again a part of it. I have committed to posting every other week and I look forward to this chance to express myself and the deadline associated with it.
I am also looking at different ways to publish my writing. It is time for me to stop fishing in the same pools where I haven't even gotten a bite and find different markets where I can submit my articles and personal essays. Independent publishing has always appealed to me and this year it is a route I plan to take for a few projects.
Overall, I am excited about the year ahead and am looking forward to seeing what Kainós Kerrie can accomplish.
What are you doing to freshen up your writing life?
p.s. I wonder if I can add a fishing reference into every blog post this year?
