All Apologies

I just want to apologize for a brief absence on the blog here–almost a whole week gone, eh? But as I was instructed as a young lad, if I ain’t got nothing good to talk about, then shut my trap. Or something like that.

Anyway, the past week has been busy for me. After barely submitting anything since last October, I’ve put together 12 separate submissions for 12 separate journals. My goal is to have an acceptance to report by the end of the calendar year. And with a recent nice rejection from The Pedestal, I’m thinking it’s possible. Maybe.

As far as this blog is concerned, I’ve got some interviews with poets lined up, and a few other ideas buzzing around in my head. So I think this brief dry spell will soon be at an end. And anyway, when there’s nothin’ else goin’ on, there’s always Wednesday (tomorrow!) and the poetry prompt.

So that’s my update–until tomorrow. Hope everyone’s having an outstanding June!

    A nice June… hmmm… well, a nice idea, that!

    Diagnosed as bipolar around the first of the month. That is actually good news! There’s a reason for some of the stuff that’s been happening!

    It also means I will have a better hold, better concentration on the free flow of ideas from my chemically addled little brain.

    Robert – never apologize. Just keep on keepin’ on and know we are with you! Amy

    Thanks, Sharon and Linda.

    Yeah, the Day 22 Highlights are still coming–as well as the final 8 days after. 🙂

    And yes! Interviews! Coming! Should be lots of fun!

    Well, you are a writer so that should come first. We can deal with a dry spell from time to time. It also give us time to write a bit more. But if you need something to post, how about the next (Day 22?) Highlights? I’m curious to see them.

    I’d like to see an interview from a children’s poet and maybe from Boyds Mills Press, which I understand has an imprint for publishing poetry. I think it is called Wordsong. Or from publishers who accept rhyming picture books (yeah, I know they are hard to sell but they keep being published) and, of course, literary journals that publish poetry.

    Looking forward to future blog entries.

    Oh, and good luck with the submissions.

    I think it was Katherine Hepburn who said, "Never apologize, never explain…" – I usually agree with her, but in this instance, I was starting to get worried about you Robert so am glad to hear that you have just been hard at work. ‘Just being hard at work’ of course,is such an understatement. From the sounds of it, it wasn’t really a dry spell. Congrats on your rejection from The Pedestal – I agree, things look promising. Sharon Ingraham
