Congratulations to Kelli Russell Agodon and Letters from the Emily Dickinson Room for winning ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Award! Woo hoo! A well-deserved honor, my dear!
Who is the next emerging woman poet we should watch for (and when I mean emerging, I mean first or second book)? Who is really making waves in poetry now? Men seem to draw all the buzz, but tell me who you think is poised to be the female poet everyone is talking about.
The idea of summer reading lists amuses me. I read all year-round. Why do I need a special list for summer? It's not like I stop reading during the other seasons. Are summer reading lists a marketing ploy to get us to buy more books? Hmmm …
Eating and sleeping, no problem. Making writing a priority, not as easy as it seems.
Yesterday after work, I mowed the lawn, spent time with the kids, and managed to clear off a working space on my desk--but fell asleep before I could use it. Ugh. The holiday weekend can't come soon enough.
That was a random assortment of things to talk about. Oh well. It's Wednesday. Deal!
