8:54 a.m. — San Antonio
listening to Mack the Knife sung by Bobby Darin (I never get tired of it)
Howdy! My computer is up and running. My room looks habitable. Things are looking up. I hope everyone is well and ready for links.
1] I follow two newsletters regularly. I’ve mentioned Diane Lockward’s Blogalicious before, but haven’t mentioned Origami Poems in a while. One of the things I most enjoy is the poems shared from their latest micro chapbooks. Check them out and, if you are anywhere near Rhode Island, attend one of their events, for heaven’s sake!
2] Bless Trish Hopkinson for the continuing work she does researching markets for poets. This time, it’s in regard to markets that pay poets. My link will send you to her blog where she has a downloadable spread sheet.
3] Parker Molloy has written an article for Upworthy, on what makes a word real. He focuses on The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, created by John Koenig, but mentions a TED talk on the same subject. You can read, then listen!
A great trio if I say so myself. Have fun with them. I shall see you Tuesday the 15th for my regular prompt.
Happy writing, y’all.
