all i have to do to advance further at that site is win more contests and more applause on comments. i started a new contest. that's what i got the snarky comment about. bitter about not being able to compete for 200 cyber points because you didn't like the example i put up? grow the fuck up! i don't want to hear about it. i don't owe you anything little man. and it's the men. yes, the men who do this shit. women will snark grammatically, but not literally. no, it is the men who have an issue with the song prompt i put up. so? so i slammed him down. whatever.
other than that i've been very productive. i wrote four poems fresh, found and used an old one from Hunter Thompson's death, and resurrected a 2 decade old poem about suicide that never got the attention it deserved and rewrote it for entry in another contest. i have nothing more to do on that site than enter poetry contests, which are just fancy ways of getting me to write new poetry without having to "Wait for the muse", and comment on other people's poems, which i have to do every time i submit poems. It works so that when you go to submit a poem, you are directed to a page of other poems and forms and you must fill out the comment forms for at least two poems to proceed. oh, and win some of the contests. so i can start new ones. i dont care if i'm winning or not, as long as i'm writing and reading new work.
i stayed awake today to call kelli this afternoon and doc passed out on me. i was hoping for some frooky time with him, but no, he sleeps. i have to talk to kelli about her art for her site. i'm really excited to do her site. i'm hoping she is up for picking a font, one that she really likes that says KAM316 to her. i will use that as the specialty font and then choose a nice, tasteful Helvetica for the rest.
i kept thinking the notice on the contests that said "new only" referred to new users, and have not entered poems that should have won some contests. only today did i figure out it means "new poetry only" no "pre-writes". which, how would they know, if it fits the subject matter, which two did. both were generic contests about suicide. both poems were generic poems about suicide. both very impactful in their own ways. the other contests i entered i wrote the poems right then for them. four, i think i did. i don't know if any one of them is a winner, i hope so. i have to win to advance. and to earn more points to host more contests.
