confession tuesday, january 18

January 18, 2011

I confess that I have been enjoying writing the small stones this month, but I haven’t written a full-length poem all month even though I have attempted some. Of course, that makes me wonder if I’ll ever write another full-length poem. But that is 2010-Carolee sputtering. 2011-Carolee doesn’t worry about such things. Remember?


I confess that I just lied to you. I attended a writing from art workshop on Saturday and drafted two full-length poems. I forgot about them until just now. Oh, 2010-Carolee, release your grasp!


I confess that I am waiting for news about a job opportunity and that’s it’s really hard to wait. Patience isn’t my strong suit. (If anyone has found my strong suit, please return it.)


I confess that I am nervous about stepping foot back in a classroom. Monday, I start a graduate poetry workshop. I am dipping my toe into the grad school waters. No commitment. No pressure. Just a redheaded old lady trying to hang with the kiddies. Eeek!


I confess (again) that I haven’t exercised since last Tuesday and that I know with all my being that exercise is exactly what I need to help me cope with all of these big changes.

    Talk about inspiration! You’re amazing.

    Good luck with the job opportunity. And don’t worry about the grad writing course. I bet you’ve written more poetry and been involved in more poetry projects than most of your fellow classmates. Use that energy to push your work forward. You can do this!
