Getting My Ducks in a Row

(OK, they're Canadian geese, but you get the point.)

Sometimes the only way out is through. So in order to get myself on track, here’s my poetry to-do list for the entire world to see.

This week

  • Prepare for tomorrow's NEWS Reading
  • Write one poem
  • Write next Poetry Thursday article
  • Write article for side project
  • Send poetry out to two publications
  • Research cool side project—more on that later

(I’d do more this week but I have friends visiting from Texas. They’ll join us for the Red Sox-Yankees game on Friday! Woo Hoo!!!)

Next week

  • Write one poem
  • Start prepping to team-teach a seminar at Brookline Adult & Community Education
  • Research publishers/contests to send manuscript
  • Do a minor revision to manuscript—I want to add a few poems to my current collection
  • Research local and regional organizations for grants and fellowships
  • Look into writing a commentary for NPR—this is a dream of mine that I’ve been mulling over for a long time

What's on your to-do list?

Your to-do list is much more interesting than mine, which has things like laundry, cleaning the fridge, and bookwork on it. Eeesh.

That's the to-do list I DON'T publish. Wouldn't want to share my complete distain for housework with everyone!

You are cultivating an impressive list of projects and career-builders, my dear. These lists of yours help me to focus on what's important, and rethink my own priorities for the days and weeks ahead.

Thanks for sharing them!

I'm so sorry that I won't be able to be at the reading tonight. :( I actually have 2 competing school meetings to attend and I can't be at both of them at the same time, either. Grrrr.

I hope it goes well and I'll be there in spirit.
