Japan on the horizon
And it's occurred to me that in 14 days I will be flying over the Philippine Sea and almost arriving in Japan and if I wasn't so tired I might feel a little bit anxious about that fact.
Today, though, I completed an interview with Alice Allan at Poetry Says and we talked about the Manuscript process and our strategies for submitting to Journals.
It should be out in the next 2-3 weeks, so keep your eyes open as I'll be restricted to my phone for posting any updates and probably won't be able to promote it until I get back.
This morning I spent a gloriously uninterrupted (and rare) 2-3 hours writing a draft of a poem and then spent another hour or so looking over the first half of my manuscript.
Speaking of the manuscript. It's the first time I have laid it out on the floor and originally I was skeptical about the usefulness of such a process ( I initially arranged it in a Pressbooks file) but I must say, as a result of the process, I did switch the location of 3 poems. So, not without its merits.
So until next time.
