Woo hoo it is Friday! Last full week of the semester. I’m exhausted but feeling a bit excited about the prospect of – while not really taking a lot of breaks a I have lots I want to do – the sleeping in portion of summer is fast approaching. Old people love their sleep
I had some fun the other day finally making a breakthrough on my poem organization which includes a project I’m calling “the painter” for now. One of the 10 poems in what I hope will be a chapbook is in the current edition of Pirene’s Fountain. Also while I was doing my re-org I finally decided what to do with all my poems that have been published but aren’t in any particular collection. This means poems I don’t think will ever end up in a specific collection including things I wrote *shudder* and had published *double shudder* in small places in my teens. Some of these have NEVER been online before. The project is called the sundries. What is cool about doing this as a blog format is that I can pull ones off If I do put them in a collection or add more!
So I’m not exactly writing what I know which Sandra Beasley has an interesting discussion of on her blog. And if you didn’t get enough of what I supposedly know why not read an interview with me about writing spaces etc? Or if you want to actually SEE me in person and you are near Atlanta I’ll be one of several Sibling Rivalry Press readers at the Decatur Public Library from 3-5 tomorrow. Yep. TOMORROW. Here is an interview with one of the other writers who will be there.
The other project I have is more of a full length tentatively called Job2. I know, exciting right? Here is the latest poem I put together for that in a very early draft. As always feel free to post your work in progress and/or to comment on mine or others in comments. I will take mine down and any others posted in a week.
I have other things I could possibly post today but this blog is over 500 words! Let’s stay short: like me
–time to revise!
