|Yep, that's me at a reading I did on Saturday night.|
Thank you so much for reading my blog these past few years. I know I'm supposed to be in the middle of this A-Z challenge and I keep missing my deadline. I know!
My excuses are not due to any bad events. Sure life gets in the way of blogging, but that's not why I'm missing weeks. Right now, I'm doing poetry readings and writing workshops all over the place and I am having so much fun!
I'm so very thankful for all of you for helping and encouraging me on the poetry writing path. I want to tell you about that stuff. I want to write about how "readings" are performances and they take so much out of me. How when I sit down to write, I don't want to write to a set prompt. I just want to write whatever comes out and post whenever I want. I want to tell you about the work I'm doing at my son's school library. I want to tell you about the dream come true featured reading that I did in Orange a few weeks ago. I want to tell you how one of my poems is getting published in a local quarterly, being printed right now! How I think it's crazy, how I'm feeling crazy.
I started this blog to write about my adjustment to motherhood. I didn't make it public until I hid all the motherhood posts and started playing along with the fantastic prompts you all share. I love this awesome community of bloggers.
I'm sorry I've been unreliable, absent, and out of the loop for so long. I also hate that I feel so much guilt when another Monday rolls around and I'm not prepared to post anything.
Worst of all, I think this week was the week we were supposed to work with V.
I guess I just set myself up for W: whoopsies!
Please continue visiting my favorite blogger, Just Me, every week for the MFM. She's far more reliable than me and her writing kicks ass.
