We’ve made it back around to Friday, and I hope everyone else has a had a good start to National Poetry Month. I haven’t written anything that I’m overjoyed with thus far, but I’m trucking along. I am posting what I started working on on 4-2-12. This was from my idea sheet so it had been a while since I came up with the idea. I’ve worked on it for a few days, but still not sure exactly what direction it is headed in.
–and I will go to try and salvage my poem :)
I haven’t had any poems to submit this week, but I’m only waiting on one last item from 2011 that was submitted before I can go back and see how I did with my submissions to acceptance ratio for 2011. For someone who was never particularly great at math I sure like playing with percentages.
I have to cut back on my online reading lately, but I did manage to read through a few items recently including this great article in The Rumpus about whether or not a doctor should keep their politics out of the exam room. I’m wary of bringing my personal views on things like politics and religion into my classroom so I appreciate reading that other professionals think about those same issues.
In other news I found out I was nominated for a storySouth award! Wow! Wish I could come up with a new essay topic. I need to write some more prose. Maybe I should write some more about the Histories Mysteries special I saw on the Wright Brothers. What if, as I spent my whole childhood believing, they weren’t the first in flight? Can you guys think of things you just KNEW to be true that you found out later weren’t?
As always feel free to comment on my work in progress and/or to post your own. I will take down my work and anything you dear readers post one week from today. Have a great weekend!
