Kelly Writer's House

I leave for New Jersey tomorrow. On Thursday at 6pm, I'm reading with my former poetry group: Suppose and Eyes at the Kelly Writer's House. I can't wait--the Writer's House is one of my favorite places.

I have 2 drafts left to do for NaPoWriMo, and I'm finishing them today. I never have time to write while I'm visiting my parents. This is exciting! I wasn't sure I would be able to finish the whole project.

Update on NaPoWriMo

NaPoWriMo is going well. Writing every day has really helped me focus--it's shaken up my process in a good way.

One of my favorite parts of doing this project is sitting down to write, thinking I'm out of ideas, and then because I have to, I come up with something. I love when it feels like the ideas come from nowhere.

I've been concentrating exclusively on drafts this month, so I am pretty eager to get started on revisions in May. This whole project has made poetry even more fun! I wonder if it would stay as fun if I did it more than once a year.

I've also really enjoyed reading everyone's drafts!

I had a poster of this hanging on my wall until it got ripped when I was in 6th grade

Workout shows

Since someone stole the TV from my apartment complex's gym, I've been feeling nostalgic for TV shows that are good for working out:

COPS
The Shield
Dog, the Bounty Hunter
Star Trek: TNG and Voyager

We also watched a lot of Whose Line is it Anyway? which is not a good work out show. The show is good, but the treadmills are really loud, so we have to use closed captioning. Too many of their jokes rely on sound.

Outtakes from the poetry recordings

I saved some of the outtakes from when I was making my Scrambler poetry audio recordings. The second one is louder than the first one.

The first one: I was recording and Corvine started loudly eating some tape. You can't hear the tape-eating, but he messed me up while I was recording.

The second one: what is a giln?

Even the official documents

All the documents at my job are written in Comic Sans.

Yay! I am the featured poet at The Scrambler this month! I have 6 poems up along with audio poems and an interview.
