This morning I ordered the 2013 Poet’s Market from Amazon. I’ve made a promise to myself to send out at least one poem a month. I haven’t tried to publish in literary magazines or small presses in years. I hate the business end of it and would rather spend the time creating but it IS nice, once in awhile, to see my poems in print along with other poets. Also, at this time in my life, sending out the poems gives me a purpose, something to look forward to, whether the poems are published or not. My life has become so humdrum, so void of freshness or excitement. This will be an adventure.
I want to apologize to my readers. I have a bad case of carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands–the palms and all fingers. And the right hand is worse! I’ll be out of commission for a while but I’ll be back as soon as I can type with my right hand without making the condition worse. I hope it will be soon. I look forward to reading your posts. I feel like I’ve been cut off from the world! Bless you all!
