Wednesday Break

So, this is what I feel like.  My week started off with me braving 13 degrees BELOW zero temperatures.  I’m lucky that my car started.  I’m also lucky that it’s warmer out now — a balmy 28 degrees.  Still, I think that I am coming down with something.  I managed to avoid getting sick over the holidays, and usually that is a tradition with me.  So, now I am getting sick during school.  Not good.

What is good, however, is some news I received at the beginning of this week.  River Styx, one of my favorite literary journals ever, accepted one of my poems, “All My Boyfriends Wore Beer Labels for Nicknames.”  The responses from last year’s submission blitz are trickling in…


  1. Congrats! I love River Styx! And that poem!

  2. Justin Evans Said:

    Cool! That is really great news about getting accepted. I hope you get past the sick part as soon as possible.

  3. David Walsh Said:

    Congrats on the River Styx pub!

    Your pic reminds me of ‘ye olde Web days’ when a large cadre of people published cat pics every Friday (?or was it Monday, can’t remember).

  4. Karen Said:

    Thanks everyone!

    Dave — it’s a blogging world joke that there are cat blogs all over the place. I don’t want my blog to be a “cat blog” but Lola is very entertaining, and there are days that she portrays my moods rather well!

  5. Congratulations on your acceptance! And, based on your review of Big Muddy, I ordered a couple sample copies!

  6. Karen Said:

    Thanks Kathleen, and I also hope you enjoy Big Muddy. I’m going to look up Kerr’s chapbook.

  7. Big congrats, Karen. I love River Styx, too.
    That cat picture is perfect! Hope you feel better soon.

  8. Karen, I hope you feel better soon — that River Styx acceptance should go a long way towards helping! Congratulations!
