Welcome to exam week! What can you re-examine? My composition classes have had to read from their portfolios like a mini presentation/reading. That has been fun. I have one more today. My final exam is on Monday for my British Lit class. That will be an oral exam on “Gulliver’s Travels.” The online creative writnig class doesn’t have an exam but I’m still waiting on a few portfolios. One good thing about finishing up exams, besides the obvious end of the semester, is that my schedule is back to being a little more flexible – thus – why I am here bright and early.
I’m gonna post my poem in progres first and then some other links:
–time to revise!
This is very new, as I drafted it on Wednesday and it hasn’t been through any type of revision. I want to work in more play on the senses since I noticed – on reviewing - that sight and touch are already there.
As always feel free to post your own work in progress in comments and/or to comment on mine and/or anyone else’s. I will take down my work and work by anyone else a week from now.
This weekend I’ll be heading to Asheville for Wordfest. I’ll be reading with two other poets on Sunday at 3pm at Malaprop‘s books. I love reading at Malaprop’s, well, and just being in the Asheville area. Such a terrific city. There are other events all weekend so this would be a great time to head into the NC mountains. My publisher sent copies of “Fat Girl” but I have to decide if I want to promote other books. I had the same question with myself yesterday when I dropped off copies of “Fat Girl” at a local indie bookshop: Park Road Books. I know these are good problems to have, but most stores want you to be promoting one book so that each time you read you are promoting something different. I’ll probably keep to that rule and read more from “An Amateur Marriage” at open mikes until I book other readings later this summer and year.
Which reminds me . . . need a poet? Have a great weekend!
