Tally Marks

It’s official.  I’ve been reviewing my files from the past few months.  I wrote 20 poems this summer.  Eight of them have been revised and are out and about trying to find homes in the poetry world.  However, I still have 12 that need work.  I hate to say this, but I think two of them are lost causes.  While I like the images found in both poems, I can’t help but shake the “so what” feeling about the overall theme and ideas.

Goal:  Revise at least 10 of these poems by the end of August.  Since school has started out fairly smoothly, I think I can do this.


  1. Way to go, Karen! Good luck with the revisions.

  2. Now that’s a great summer! But revise 10 poems in 5 days?! Good luck!

  3. Karen Said:

    Thanks guys! I just realized that September is right around the corner. Maybe five poems?
