So, it’s August

And the month has started out with a whimper.  Saturday morning I got two rejection notes, via email.   Both rejections came within an hour.  I don’t usually write about my rejections, but this is a record for me!

But, I have to say that the month has gotten better.  Yesterday, I went on to the Chautauqua grounds to hear a poetry reading by Catherine Bowman.  Catherine read poems from The Plath Cabinet, her newest collection of work inspired by the life (and artifacts) of Sylvia Plath.  This week I will be taking a workshop with her.  I had my first session today, and already have lots of new writing and teaching ideas.
