sabbatical

i mailed off my manuscript to 3 contests yesterday; i gave them each little kisses on the forehead for luck as they venture out into the world.

i’ve been drafting a poem this week but its gone slow. after the editing marathon i’ve done the past month and the many new drafts the past couple of months, i think i could use a short writing sabbatical–i’m worn out!

so this entire week i’m going to take a little break. get some grading done, caught up on lesson planning, relax with the family, even enjoy some fall weather.

“Rest and be thankful.”  – William Wordsworth
