Today is my birthday, and I’m celebrating it by being at work. Actually, I chose not to take the day off because next week I will be in North Carolina working on my manuscript. With the holidays fast approaching, I need to conserve my vacation time. I did open up my gifts from my wife before work this morning (great gifts: some clothes, a gym bag, a watch, and a bookcase for my stacked books on the floor in the study), and we did go to breakfast at Aunt Sarah’s before work so that I could get my chocolate chip pancake fix. I may try to cut out of work early today if the boss allows it.

Haven’t been doing much writing. I think that I’m conserving my energies for the concentrated effort of next week. I have been reading though: Alison Stine’s chapbook Lot of My Sister, David Lehman’s Evening Sun & When a Woman Loves a Man, and I just received my copy of Ashley Capps debut book called Mistaking the Sea for Green Fields.

In other news, I received a prompt rejection from Pleiades yesterday. I mailed the submission to them around the middle of September.

Happy Belated Birthday. Mine was yesterday. Libras rock. And Alison Stine's book is awesome, isn't it?

Thanks, Rebecca. Happy belated birthday to you! Yes, Libras rock! I did enjoy Alison Stine's chapbook, particularly the first few poems.

I was born 10/03/70, and am a poet. I imagine there's more of us, but it was wierd to come across this anyway (searched up tips on assembling poetry manuscripts).
