Last night’s writers workshop was a held on the second floor of a very old building with no air conditioning. It was a smaller group than usual, and I guess you could say I took the lead in leading the workshop. At the end of the evening I was all ready to share my "Misery Islands" poem but I pulled back. Just didn’t think it (or I) was ready. There are still some tweaks I’d like to make. Three of the eight sections of this poem could be tighter.
The hard part for me in working on "Misery" is putting aside the emotional parts and working in service of the poem. I’m getting there. More revisions to the poem today, then back to working on the larger manuscript.
For some reason, I planned four readings in eight days, two of which are in New York. Also in the mix is my daughter's 5th birthday. What was I thinking?
I’ve added some nifty sharing tools below. Feel free to spread the love.
My mini-list of things I’d like to do before summer ends:
- Go to a Red Sox game
- Eat lobster
- Go to lunch with an interesting person, someone new
What's left on your to-do list before summer ends?
Have you tried the new pretzel M&M’s? Delish!
