Ella wakes up at 3 a.m. I wake up at 3 a.m. Ella climbs into bed with me, falls asleep at 4:30. I'm still awake. I'm dead on my feet. Happy Friday!
The Dodge Poetry Festival is less than two weeks away. (Where has the time gone?) Just bought tickets and booked my hotel room. Are you attending this year?
Yesterday, I got a rejection from a journal. Oh well. Time so submit those poems someplace else. Very nice note with the rejection inviting me to submit again in the spring.
I had an early morning meeting with a friend to talk about my manuscript. More tweaking needed before it's ready to send out. Revision is just not my strong suit, a necessary evil--emphasis on the word evil!
Then, I went to a meeting with the Mass Poetry Festival folks. Working on plans for the 2011 event. If you haven't already, check out this year's poetry events!
Last but not least, I was just invited to read at the Miami International Book Fair!! Miami in November? Oh yeah, I'm so there.
So, let me leave you with this oldie but goodie, Big Willie style!
