…it appears we had a server crash last week, tied to some power outage thing-a-ma-bob. Apparently, all the poems posted between Wednesday morning and Thursday around 7ish in the evening for the most recent poetry prompt have been wiped clean of the site. Totally bummed, because I read a lot of great stuff on Wednesday (while on vacation).
It appears those lost comments will not be restored–so I hope there were no original copies in there. I’m lucky the blog post wasn’t completely wiped out, because I just type my first drafts right into the box for these prompts. While this was a freak occurence, I would advise everyone (myself included) to copy their poems over into Word or something similar before or directly after posting–though before is probably the safest bet.
In other news, I had a poem accepted by the Barn Owl Review for their 2nd issue, which’ll be released at the 2009 AWP in Chicago. Very, very cool! As mentioned in the blog, I just started submitting again in June–so it’s awesome to already see some good coming of it. 🙂
Now that I’m back from my southern vacation, I’ve got a lot of stuff to post, so be sure to stop over from time to time this week.
