Happy Tuesday, folks! Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to share your sins, and don't forget to reach out to my fellow sinners in The Confessional.
A big wet, sloppy kiss to Kristi, Joseph, Alex, Suzie, Erin, Colleen, Heidi, Stanley, Rosemary, Tom, Heather, and "pubs" for helping me navigate through some difficult personal waters. I'm following the example of Dory from the movie Finding Nemo: "Just keep swimming!"
Two really great pieces of news. One of my poems that was accepted to Drunken Boat last year will appear online this week in issue #10. There's an audio link, too. How exciting! And, Joseph Legaspi and I will be reading in the Joaquin Miller Cabin Reading Series in Washington, D.C., this June or July! How cool is that? And with any luck, maybe we'll get to read at Busboys and Poets.
This is the start of lots of summer travel. Wish there was money to travel, which means all of my summer adventures will be the "shoestring" kind. But I think that's the best way to go sometimes. Nothing wrong with cheap eats and free stuff. I'm just psyched that most of the museums on The Mall are free!
NaPoWriMo is kicking my poetry *ss! It's tough when you're writing to catch up. I mean, try writing three poems in one day. But I hope to be back on pace in a day or so.
That's all I got this week. When you're trying to write a poem a day, that lives little time for chit chat. Happy NPN, everyone!
