July has been a whirlwind of birthdays, weddings, and family get-togethers. I have not been very faithful about blog posts. I have been writing every morning, in my journal, and I’ve been going through my entire novel a little bit at a time, thinking-thinking-thinking about its structure and what the characters need most and what I want most from it. I’ve been trying to let it be.
I am looking forward to taking August OFF of prose for poetry — August and maybe September, too.
- I’m going to attend Peace Arts in Bellingham and take a class on August 3.
- I’m a featured reader at the Auburn AugustFest celebration of poetry, on August 13.
- I’ll be doing the August Poetry Postcard send-out again. If you would like me to send you a postcard poem, you can email your address to me (yes, that’s snail mail — an actual uniformed representative of our government will deliver your poem to your mailbox!) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just for good measure, I’ll send you my snail mail address, too.
Now, off to the wedding. And here’s a love poem, just to hold my place.
