Things I’m currently writing:
For the past several weeks I’ve been existing in the strange limbo of the “encouraging rejection letter.” For example: “Loved these, thanks for sending.” “Think of us again.” “These were close, send again later.” “Especially liked ‘_______’.”
Which is good. I like that response better than a blank slip. But people, it also boils down to this: I can’t give my poems away. They’re free. Just take one.
These things just aren’t ready yet. I know that. I’m testing waters. I want to put them out there.
I will continue to work.
