My poem “dreams of color 1997-2008” just went live on The. The editor emailed me back saying that he liked the poem except for a final floating line that just made the whole thing silly. I thought, “Hmmm,” and reread it, and -oh, the humanity!- he was absolutely right. This stranger just managed to save me from myself.
I’m working on my poetry. I’d like to get better at it, and that means a lot of reading, a lot of writing, and some listening now and then. I want to do a little bit of everything, I think. Short stories, novels, nonfiction, poetry. I even co-wrote a screenplay that should never see the light of day, but it was so much fun to write! I want to do it all. I want to enjoy every last second of it.
Anyway, come see my poem at http://welcometoyethe.blogspot.com/. And I was up to 40 submissions, (yay!) but today’s acceptance dropped me back down again. (boo…wait, I mean yay!) Most of you know that I’m a crazy sleeper. Now you can see what I dream about.
