I’ve very pleased to be included in Two Cities Review with my poem Dusk. I love that poem, and am happy it’s found a home. Go check out all the poets in the issue. Great stuff.
I’m very pleased to have three poems in tiny poetry: macropoetics. Here. Really cool stuff going on there and the editors could not have been more welcoming. Check them out for sure.
Blogger has become unusable. Sad. Goodbye Page of Woe Absolved, hello Page of Woe Absolved 2.
I opened up my WP blog, here, which I’ve had for years. Will be posting there from now on.
Never name a character Lloyd because for every time you type that name, you will type every variation but the correct spelling. I’ve never backspaced so much in my life.
Well, hello there.
I’ve been busy this summer sending out submissions, writing a query letter, and organizing the upcoming poetry club at the elementary school I work at. And so many revisions. On so many things. Plus more on the newer-ish novel.
I’ve got four submissions out right now, a slew of poems which would be um… ::counts:: 10, and a short story. I just hope that the eventual rejection letters don’t all come on the same day. That would be kind. Of no one’s doing though but mine. Heh.
So query letters. They are a thing that may need more revision than the actual novel. Which also still needs some cleaning up, but I decided years ago that it would be a forever project. So I don’t worry.
I’m also contemplating in a very small way, asking people to read it. Can you imagine the gall in that!? LOL Only a very tiny part of me feels that way.
Thanks for reading!
Now that I have a phone I can trust, (shout out to Moto G!) I’ve started adding submission nsuggestions to my calendar, so I don’t forget about them, and also so I don’t need to keep 10 tabs open on my computer.
I’ve been plugging away at adding the edits to the 5th draft of the novel. I’m coming to the conclusion that there has to be an end point on this somewhere, though I don’t know where that point is. I keep finding things to fix, some absolutely needed and others my preference.
The weekend “creative” group at my school has kept me on task. Plus it’s a nice social situation.
I just watched the 10 version of this, and now I’m saving this to watch later. REALLY good.
I have no memory of most of the poems I write. I find them again, and am surprised, and a little critical.
Aprils disappear in no time.
