I'm grateful to have received my contributor's copy of Copper Nickel Issue 16.
Spent the day working at my desk--I managed to write my review/endorsement for The Lit Pub.
I printed out a copy of Post ____________Subject, which came out to a whopping 92 pages. I also pieced together the "Nocturnes" manuscript which wound up being around 57 pages after I included the "Camera" poems. The "Camera" poems feel clumsy in the manuscript at the moment, and I'm not sure what I need to do to ease them in a bit more gracefully.
I also managed to write the poem you see below (at least for now).
I also found the time to send off two poetry submissions. I need to get on top of my submissions because the work's starting to pile up.
What I didn't do: I didn't clean the house. I didn't go to the gym. I didn't leave the house.
Got a call from the bank today. We're in the process of applying for a construction loan. Unfortunately we're not approved for the amount we'll need to build a garage, so there's one bummer that happened. We SO need a garage. Our kids are pushing us out of our house . . .
Raining. Raining heavily.
