Possible Blog Hiatus

In Uncategorized on April 9, 2013 at 2:00 am

Okay, last week I wrote a joke blog entry because I had a migraine and it was April Fool’s Day. But it’s now April 8th, so this one’s for real.

It’s entirely possible that I won’t be updating my blog for the rest of this month. That’s because April is National Poetry Month and several poets have taken upon themselves to also think of it as National Poetry Writing Month, which is the poetry version of the National Novel Writing Month that happens in November. It is also referred to as “30/30” for 30 poems in 30 days. So I’ll be spending most of my writing time this month writing poems.

I’ve already had people ask me why I don’t just post the poems in my blog, but I don’t want to do that becauseĀ  if I post them on the internet, I may not be able to sell first publication rights for those pieces to a publisher that may be interested in publishing them. So I am currently posting them onto facebook, where only people who are my facebook friends can see what I post there. If I post them here, anyone with an internet connection can see them and publishers may already consider them published as a result, and thus, not so interested in publishing themselves. Make sense?

In any case, I should be back to writing a regular, weekly blog in May.

Last Blog Ever

Just lost both my hands. So no blog today. Actually, no more blogs. Or anything else. I’m done writing. Had to type this with my nose. Correcting typos is too hard. Plus, I now know my keyboard smells like burnt tuna fish. I can’t go on writing if I always have to smell that. So, that’s all. And please be careful when using your juicers.
