I have been trying, for the last month or two, to pull myself together and write the “why” essay for the big Flash Poetry Event that I have on my other blog every February. I still haven’t written it but at least I finally managed to post the submission guidelines and send an e-mail soliciting work to poets who do work that I like. I remember what an amazing amount of work it turned out to be last year and I’m hoping I manage to be a little further ahead this year.
I miss Paul Squires; it was difficult to take his name off the mailing list of poets that I pulled up from last year. I find that I am looking forward to it…fun, inspirational, creatively stimulating and something new every day. It also means that I have to start writing too, and not just the essay, good.
