Yeah, I haven't been blogging much lately. Haven't even been reading blogs on a daily basis as I normally do, either. I haven't abandoned poetry, though -- I've been submitting like a madwoman! Well, that is, if your definition of "madwoman" includes sending out a packet every day or two for a few days. Okay, so it's not all that much, but I'm getting stuff out there on a more regular basis for once, including sending work to a couple of journals I've been meaning to send to for a while.
Oddly enough, when you send more stuff out, you are more likely to get stuff accepted. (Who knew? Hey, I'm a poet, not a statistician!) The kind folks over at Coal Hill Review are taking a poem for their fall issue, which makes me happy.
In somewhat more personal news, my sister became a grandmother late last night, which makes me a (gasp) great-aunt. That's just weird. But also a happy thing. Welcome to the world, baby Apollo!
