Cold and drizzly this morning. I need to get going to work. I just realized I am in clinic and/or on call for the next 13 days. Egads. How did this happen? Who can I fire? hahaha. But seriously, I often get a lot done when I am busy like this, and tend to waste my time when I really don't have much scheduled. So, go figure.

Reading Justin Chin's Gutted, which is fascinating and entertaining. More on that later.

Also reading In Posse submissions, and have found a number of lovely poems so far.

Looking forward to the ASU Desert Nights Rising Stars Writing Conference. I'll have a small group, a workshop on Word Play, a panel on balancing Writing and Work (haha), and a reading with Laurie Notaro and Tony Hoagland. I'm really excited to read as it will be the debut of the new book, which will make it out just in time for the conference. Looking foward to seeing Richard Siken and Carolyn Forche, as well. Yeehaw!

***I'm the same way. Give me six weeks of nothing and that's exactly what I'll produce!

I think when I have more time it's easier to put something off because I keep thinking-- I can do it later... Apparently, later never arrives.

Your AZ gig sounds great! Let us know how Hoagland is. I've never seen him read and am curious about what he is like in person.

Best,
Kel
