So Far So Good

 

So, here we are, four days into the new year, and there’s already been some changes as you can obviously see. The new look is working for me for now, but we’ll see how it goes. With my restless ways you never know what you’re going to find when you drop by.

Next. I don’t remember if I shared the news or not but my peace poem was published along with the other Poets For Peace members in Praxis Magazine Online. Every year they are going to publish the anthology for the group. The download is free and you can get it here (clickable link). There were so many wonderful poems that it’s worth giving it a read. My poem begins on page 55.

Next up is what has been going on with the poem I entered into a contest. I received an official Author’s Proof back in November to correct any errors in my poem so it is published correctly. I sent it back and that’s pretty much all I’ve heard so far. The contest officially ended December 31st and winners should be announced in about six to eight weeks. I’ll certainly be writing about it here if I win anything. Not that I am actually expecting anything. I’m hopeful, but I’m a realist and I know my own poetry. And I’m not being hard on myself. Beyond the Fog was really only written for fun and isn’t my best work. But who knows, right?

Lastly, in case you missed reading my work, I am officially writing over at The Well Tempered Bards and I’ve been posting there while my site has been down. Here’s links to what you might have missed:

 

Ophelia

Angry Girl

Blue-Blooded

Ode For The Glitterbomber

Into The Void

 

There. I think that catches us all up for today.

I will be getting back into the swing of things but it might take a little time. If you bear with me, I promise the ride might be worth it. 🙂

Have a wonderful day!

P.S. How does the site look? Can you read the post? Let me know in the comments, thanks.

Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
