Hello folks. I’ve got some poetry for ya, dirt cheap right here.
I just returned from Pittsburgh where I was lucky enough to stand in a room full of far more talented writers and read some of these poems. It was a fantastic experience even if the folks in the back row could see me shaking like a leaf. My sincere thanks to the old friends who came out and to the new friends I made that night. I hope every trip in can be so inspiring and so filled with oolong tea.
On the ride home there was a flurry of butterflies all over Pennsylvania and I when I got back to New York I had to pull their little broken wings from the grill of my rented car. A good image, I suppose for my complicated tattered feelings about leaving Pittsburgh.
I’ll have to think on that. But now back to work – back to my little closet to plot the second Lizzy book (the first one will be out SOON!). In the meantime here’s a chat I had with Jen about writing over at her blog.
