UPDATE ON THE 2010 WRITING GOALS

Nine submissions -- for four essays and two poems -- are floating around cyberspace or drifting through snail mail as I write this. Nine!

It's April, and so far I've achieved my writing goal of one publication or acceptance per month for the year, and now I'm coming up on May.

May could be the month of love letters... or love letters. Who knows which will be which? I'll keep you posted.

In other news, Drunken Boat emailed me that the galleys will soon be ready for their issue that will include"Bar After Bar." Needless to say, I look forward to that!

*P.S. I'm home with Dane today. He's got symptoms similar to what Aubrey had last week. He's reading The Lightning Thief and will later watch a Discovery Channel video on dragons; I'm reading segmented/collage essays so I can try to give form to an essay topic I've been thinking about for years...

In case anyone's worried about my math: that's nine submissions that include two essays sent to two places and a poem sent to two places, plus other stuff singularly sent out - for a total of nine. :)

LOVE your new picture!

LOVE your new blog name!

Keep reading/writing/revising.

Poor Dane: feel well.

I have been worried about your math all day. Whew. Thank goodness, now I can sleep;)

And well you SHOULD worry, Karen! You've lived to see what an extra pint or two of apple juice could do to someone who wasn't doing the math carefully enough!

I added your math figures and just knew some of them were sent out to a couple of places. I'm catching on to how you submit duplicates. How's that for "genius"?
Mike commented on your ROGUE-ALICIOUS. I'd noticed it but wondered how long it'd been that way. Knowing my observations skills you could have created your new blog name some months ago.
Hope Dane is feeling better and illness doesn't conflict a lot with his baseball practices and games.
Lovingly,
JJJ/Grammy
So PLEASED TO HEAR, DANE, that your WEREN'T READING A BOOK OUT IN CENTER FIELD. YAHOO!
