On a Roll

I got news yesterday that a second poem of mine was accepted for publishing! Whoopee! That's two in less than a month.

I'm still not sure what this means. I never intended to go into this writing workshop and learn to write poetry, that's for dang sure. I figure I must be doing something right.

Anyhow, the poem is about a meeting between two people (Donna and Me) and it's actually what I feel is one of my best. It's titled "The Start of a Beautiful Friendship" and it's being published in a rather obscure publication called Echoes. I'd point you to a website, but evidently it's still in the planning stages. When the information is available on how to get a copy, I'll be sure and post it here and on Facebook.

I'm currently working on a couple of short stories about dead house pets of my past. There's too many to count, but those that were memorable will be in this work. I hope to get it published in some form as one of my first creative non-fiction pieces. We'll see.

The great thing is that now I've found a bit more purpose in writing, other than just for enjoyment. I'll always enjoy it, but it's a different story when you get positive feedback from your peers and others.

It's off to Tuesday Night Live and Boys Club, so I'll be blogging off...
