Kibbles and Bits

I am not the recipient of a Massachusetts Cultural Council grant, nor did I receive a poetry fellowship to Bread Loaf. That one-two punch came within days of each other. Awesomesauce.

At least I have a few months before not receiving an NEA. Or as I like to think of it: hitting the trifecta.

Pity party. Party of one.

Hard to sulk on a Saturday, high today 89 degrees … but I’m going to try. Will be back to my old positive self tomorrow. Today, I feel like sulking. As a good friend of mine says, “Feel however you want to feel today, and then get over it.”

Jan-- I feel your pain. Also not a WA state fellowship winner this time.

I think this is the hard part of being a writer. Sometimes yes. Sometimes no. The no feeling can suck.

Pity parties are good, esp if they involve wine and dessert.

You're a superstar even when it's not documented.

Sorry about the WA State fellowship, Kelli. Rejection sucks.

You can join me virtually at the pity party. I serve big, pretty drinks and desserts that have zero calories and all the fat.

Thanks, from one superstar to another!
