March: Revision and Rejection

I’ve written two new poems this month.  Just two.  I’ve spent March revising, revising, revising.  And once again, I didn’t quite make my goal of submitting to ten journals per month — I was only able to submit to nine (I just could not squeeze in that other journal!).  And I hate to say it, but it has also been a quiet month on the journal front.  I have received four rejections, but no acceptances. 

Still, I feel like it has been a productive month.  I had two readings.  Plus, I read 15 collections of poetry (and I have a huge stack waiting to be read…). Finally, I sold quite a few chapbooks. 

JCC’s Spring Break starts in a few days. The weather is a bit cooler than it was, but I can’t wait.
