This week I’ve been playing around with poetry. I’m not a trained poet, but there is a story I want to tell that has decided it wants to be a poem, so what else can I do. I’ll probably just end up posting that here eventually, since I don’t feel accomplished enough as a poet to try to shop that around.
I’ve also been catching up on my YA reading. I’m not really sure whether I’ll get around to doing some Book Thoughts posts, but I’ve blown through a couple of books and I still have two more to go.
I know that I should be submitting my short stories around again. I have zero in circulation right now, and six stories that could be in rotation. But between my depression and anxiety issues flaring up, the motivation to set myself up for possible disappointment just isn’t there. I’m focusing on cleaning those stories up instead. I’m also engaging in the process of writing, which is the fun part.
