Happy Tuesday, folks! Hope it's warm and sunny where you are (we're looking at 90 degrees in the Boston area—woo hoo!). Share your hot 'n' steamy confessions with us, and don't forget to visit the sinners in The Confessional.
I'm feeling kinda icky today. Upset tummy. I believe it's a direct result of some stressful things happening in my life. But if one more person says I have Swine Flu, I will lose my mind!
In all seriousness, I'm a relatively healthy, "mind over matter" kind of person. I eat right; I exercise and drink plenty of water. So being sick always throws me for a loop. And I've never been sick because of stress. All I can do, I think, is look for ways to manage the stress because it doesn't look like it's going away for a while.
My little guy is sick at home with the same stomach icky-ness that I have. Poor thing. But I don't think it's stress related.
NaPoWriMo … three more days. We're through the looking glass, folks. After trailing for most of the month, I'm back on track. It's amazing that a project like this has changed my blogging and writing habits. Just haven't had the time or the energy to write blog posts, upload photos, or visit other blogs. Thankfully, in May I can spend more time doing all those things, as well as put together manuscript #2. So I'll spend the month revising and reshaping. I have a feeling I'll write a short series for the new collection.
May 1, I'll post a recap of my personal NaPoWriMo highlights.
Drunken Boat delayed posting their latest issue a week; I'll post a link to my poem in Issue 10 when it's ready. Also received a rejection from the Cincinnati Review. Receiving that rejection made me realize that I don't have many poems out there in circulation. Time to start sending out again. Any suggestions on where to submit over the summer months?
Also, a question for U.S. poets: Have you tried submitting your work to international publications? Just curious.
Go Red Sox! Go Celts! Go Bruins! It's a good time to be a Boston sports fan.
