You’ve all heard it before from some relative or friend: planning a wedding takes up all of your time. It’s true. I neglected creative work for my wedding. Not a terrible thing, because I am so happy to be married to my best friend and to have had a stellar party as we celebrated! But, I did neglect writing. The itch of my writer’s brain didn’t seem to mind either. Perhaps that’s because I placated him with monthly writing meetings–a poetry support group. We are the best poetry support group. And it is with them that I was able to accomplish something I haven’t done in almost two years: submit my manuscript.
That’s right folks, a full length collection of my work is out shopping for a home! Wish me/it/my poems luck.
