The Terrible 2s

Today is Poems & Paragraphs’ 2nd birthday. Oh, my Glob! Thank you, David Bowie! You’re awesome, too. Almost as awesome as my readers, friends, and partners in crime. I’ve met some terrific talent and beautiful souls here on WordPress–people who I look forward to crossing paths with every day. Rather than celebrate the birth ofContinue reading “The Terrible 2s”

Life as a Writer: part 2×3

Upon completion of “Magpie in August,” my debut novel, I began submitting to the literary agents I had researched (authors who want to go for traditional publishing should always research literary agents and houses before sending query letters). Omitting all of the uninteresting details, I received four “close, but no cigar” responses, thirteen flat outContinue reading “Life as a Writer: part 2×3”

About Me–page not found

I have written and published eleventy “About Me” pages, only to go back and hit the trash a day later because each one plagued me at night; I’d wake up at bastard o’clock in the morning wondering, Am I really a cunt?

Sláinte Mhath!

15 April, 2016, I published a dreary poem–my first post here on WordPress–now celebrating its first birthday. Nuts to me, I didn’t even bake a cake. A glass of wine will have to do–a slutty jam jar of blackberry Merlot. Tastes like Sunday Mass. Eternally October In his dreams, she dances In and out ofContinue reading “Sláinte Mhath!”

Do Me a Solid: seeking suggestions

I have been considering reconstructing my blog on a considerable scale for the past several months. As one of my friends put it, my blog is aesthetically “sedate,” and I am not a sedate person. Years ago, I had a blog titled Polythene Pam: ravings of a mad woman, named so after my alter persona.Continue reading “Do Me a Solid: seeking suggestions”
