What I’m Working On

The experience of revising these poems is difficult and I have to take a lot of precaution not to retraumatize myself. I have to take breaks. Use a lot of the self-care tools I learned in therapy over the past year. I’ve recently decided to become sober, so that is another crutch I am no longer using. Chocolate truffles and tea help. 🙂

I want to complete this manuscript, but more importantly, I want to do it well.

  1. I am actually doing a lot of things at the moment and LOVE it! It’s the good kind of stress. I am TAing and taking a Prose Poetry workshop class and in a few writing group/workshops that is making time for me to write. I am working on a beginning of a manuscript of poetry that I am getting mentored and reviewed on. Lots of great stuff this fall and winter.
