i have to make sure i am saving hard copies of all the stuff i write on the fly for the contests. and i've found that i can write on command. i can't write for every contest, something has to inspire me. there have been a few today that i have written pieces for and then discovered i wasn't qualified to enter. that was a bummer, but better than the whole removal from a contest process, which happens without explanation and is soul crushing.
so i said i would do it and i did. i spent all day at allpoetry. doc barely got any computer time at all. i took a two and a half hour nap this afternoon and he got it, but that was about it. i have written and read enough poetry for one day.
i think i may finally take that bath and read some prose. "Dreaming of Babylon" has just gotten really interesting, i hated to put it down at the end of my last bath.
i did read this one piece today, it was a humorous retelling of the three little pigs, where red riding hood kills the wolf and the last remaining pig at the end. it was very Lewis Carroll. i loved it. i gushed about it in the comments to the guy who wrote it. i wonder if it is telling that i only really like poetry written by men. hm, that's certainly something to think about.
yes, definitely a bath, and then catch up on my news feeds. that should take me to the time i can wake doc up for work. i hope he goes tonight. he has been really stressed out and i think him getting out of the house for work keeps him from going stir crazy. and no one likes a crazy doc.
