30:30 and other news...

I did it!! Have just finished my first 30:30 ever. What an exhausting ride. But fruitful, and now I have plenty of poems to work with. Yippee! Now, as for starting another one? That may not be for a bit. Then again, I may be itching tomorrow...

And in other news:

The Centrifugal Eye has just accepted (definitely) two poems. :) The editor is just fantastic to work with, very helpful and encouraging.

Needless to say, despite things being oh so hectic right now (No, I won't bother you with all the mundane details), I'm very happy. Getting ready to leave Canada soon. Not quite sure when. And, because it's really only twenty minutes away from home, not really that important of news. It won't change my life too much (we hope) but it will certainly ease the morning commute just a bit, not having to cross the bridge every day.

Now I'm going to put my feet up and watch some television....what I'll watch is up in the air, like most things. :)

Yay! Eclectica!

Just received word that one of my word poems will appear in the fall issue of Eclectica Magazine!!!! I'm pleased as punch and it makes up for a hectic week.

And I'm almost done with my first 30:30!

I've reached 20!!!!

Well, today was wonderful because I am two-thirds of the way to a full 30:30!! Today's poem, What Bones Do, is something...we'll see how good it really is. I like it now. Actually I like it more than when I first wrote it.

But that's all beside the point...

The new school year began and I wasn't sure I'd be able to keep up with the work demands and the challenge. But who am I kidding??!! Of course I can.
