Between multiple birthdays, a baby shower, going to press at the day job this week, and now starting to feel energetically off (and maybe getting sick) â€” I’m feelingÂ a bit overwhelmed and a little behind on quite a few things. So…, I am keeping this short.
What Iâ€™m Reading
I didn’t actually read anything last week â€” at least not anything in book form. I temporarily lost my copy of China MiÃ©ville’s Perdido Street StationÂ and just didn’t make any progress onÂ Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.
What Iâ€™mÂ Writing
I made it through all my daily poems for THE POEMING 2016 last week, except for Sunday. Now with all that’s been going on and how I feel and everything else, I’m a few days behind. I can and will catch up, of course, but I have to make sure to find space to mentally and physically rest in order to prevent a collapse.
Goals for the Week:
- Get all my required POEMING found poems written and posted.
10 Books That Don’t Exist But Should (Unfinished, Lost, Withdrawn, and Otherwise Tempting Us), which includes Stephen King’sÂ Â The Plant, my book for THE POEMING project
Watch a Book Being Made the Old-Fashioned Way. Slowly, and by hand.
