I may have been a little sick, but at least I got a submission off to the Moving Words Poetry Competition. After having had a computer crash and loss of a lot of pieces about 6 months ago, I was pleased to find three (well, two that were written and one that got quickly re-written) poems that addressed this year’s contest theme of “getting there.” Even if I see nothing from the submission (I was an honorable mention two years ago), I am just so glad I didn’t miss this deadline. And that I found three poems I can perhaps send out.
I also revised a short story that I started over three years ago to submit to my New Years Resolution writing workshop to discuss tomorrow. And I’ve started talking with some folks about upgrading my blogs and, more importantly, finally getting myself a writer’s site, the absence of which has held me back from submitting some essays I would really like to send out. I’ve also been avoiding working too hard to ready poetry submissions because of I don’t have myname.com. I own the domain; I just have to do something with it!
There is still a ways to go to build up the writing presence that I wish I’d started working on before I became a mom, but it feels good to hit a few personal deadlines.
Now back to that freelance architecture writing…
