Sorry I missed out on posting last week guys! We actually drove back from vacation last Friday instead of Saturday so I just didn’t quite make it. I have updated the post from two weeks ago so your work in progress is down I’m posting a newish poem below to get your feedback on. Feel free to post your work in progress (and/or links to your work in progress) in comments, and I’ll take my work and yours down a week from today.
–and now I’ll go work on da poem!!
This has been a bit of an odd week as I got back into the swing of being at home. I was also feeling a little under the weather which means I’ve cancelled my attendance at the NCWC this year. It is starting today and is five hours away. I just didn’t think I could handle that drive by myself this weekend since I’m feeling a little blah (for lack of a medical diagnosis) so instead I’m staying in to write, read, reflect etc.
I did submit some poems this week, and they were accepted! Yay! More details when they come out, but I also received a rejection which prompted me to pull a poem from the next full length manuscript I’m working on. Always plucking away at a new project.Actually that manuscript has over 50% of the individual poems already accepted for publication somewhere, and I’m just organizing the poems right now before I do another read-through. I need to decide if I want to continue sending the individual poems out. I usually stop sending them after the manuscript has been accepted somewhere so maybe I shouldn’t be premature . . . hmmm
I’ve already reported in on some reading and watching, but I am finishing up Loria Taylor’s poetry collection SOB from Sibling Rivalry Press, and before my husband headed off to his anime convention (yearly adventure with his brother the weekend I’m normally at the above mentioned writer’s conference) we finished up Sasuke 26 and 27 which meant hours and hours of watching people try to complete an obstacle course. Just simply fun to watch
This all has me almost up to date although I finished two books last night, a movie, and I’m starting a new pile of books. Nothing like having a bit of time to yourself to give you the time to do whatever ya want. I’ll celebrate that as I head into my extended weekend. Hope you have a good one as well!
