Progress Report III
Late this afternoon, I put three packets of poems together, wrote letters and addressed envelopes. No multiple submissions. Tomorrow, I am sending the poems to good places and keeping my fingers crossed.
I am, as the saying goes, "back in the mix."
I made pretty good use of my time as a writer over the Christmas holidays. I worry quite a bit about wasting time. I have so little time to write and, really don't know how much time I have left––in terms of my ability to see well enough to work, I mean.
Tomorrow it's back to my day job, and on Wednesday, back to teaching. Yes, I still have to do my syllabus.
I also have to register for the AWP Conference, get a hotel room, etc. I usually stay at a hotel away from the Conference. Because I don't drink, it takes away the annoying pressure to watch other people party, and gets me out for a walk at least twice a day.
NOTE: That's Mr. Zip, for those of you too young to remember.
