Heather and I have now completed the 30poems in 30days challenge!
It was a great (& very challenging) experience but has left me somewhat exhausted, so I’m giving myself a little break, just writing when the muse strikes, in December. I want to focus on editing what I’ve written, revising my newest chapbook manuscript, and revising my full-length manuscript.
Then, in January, I plan to get back on my poem-a-week schedule and start sending out my poems to literary magazines and manuscripts to presses.
I admit, I feel a little antsy taking a month off–I’m eager to send out my new work to presses and I always feel a little uneasy when I’m not sticking to my poetry writing schedule–but I think the month off will be good for me.
The poems will be better after having let them sit a month and my writing will be better if I give myself a month to recuperate.
So now for the editing…
