All right. Two personal blog entries in a row. Time to get
my head back in the game.
Writing updates: My sequel toSURREAL ECSTASYis still in
the publication process. I’m currently at almost 50,000 words for theDAYDREAMERsequel. That’s my top priority right now, but it’ll take a bit more
time because I have some major renovating to do on its manuscript. I also have
a new book of poetry I self-published not too long ago. It’s a kind of sampler
of 50 of my favorite poems over the last 20-some odd years.
I was hanging clothes in my closet, and remembered something
I saw on Buzzfeed’s FB feed today (yes, I take my Buzzfeed/FB experiences very
seriously).A woman struggling with her weighttossed out her old clothes, and
it helped her journey to feeling better about herself.
Without really thinking about it, I did just that. I removed
the clothes I have to look at every day without being able to fit them. And…as
can be expected…I cried. I’m not even sure why at first – I just took a cute
green fairy shirt off its hanger, folded it, and placed it on my bed, then went
back for more cute clothes that were mean because they didn’t fit (and haven’t
for a long time).
