First publication of the year!

I woke up with aches and pains: it seems my neck and back did not appreciate yesterday’s shenanigans. But checking my email brought some lovely news:

My poem Kinds of Truth is now online in the February issue (#193) of Snakeskin.

It’s quite a recent poem, written in mid-December in the wee hours of the night.

Plans for this weekend:
– I should clean, get through the Mount Doom of dishes, and other housework… (sigh)
– Even though the weather isn’t that great, I want to go for a walk or few, for the sake of my jammed neck as well as for inspiration.
– I’m working on a long-ish poem (mentioned in my previous post); I need to continue with that.
– I want to get some prose written.
– I will also knuckle down to some academic writing. *happyface*
– I think a few episodes of Farscape might make their way into my plans, too.

Have a great weekend, dear readers!


  1. Shenanigans? Pray elaborate. ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats on the poem. I found the rhythm interesting – in my reading there was a jerkiness that went well with the awkwardness of the content. (And this is one of the many reasons why I abandoned literary criticism and the like: I’m no good at talking about these things.)

    Sounds like a busy weekend, in a good way. I should workworkwork but I’m tired (neighbours’ party kept me up until 2.30 am) and not getting _anything_ done…

    1. Just your usual OKT folk dance party. I played the fiddle too! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Ooh, I always like hearing people’s interpretations/readings of my stuff – no litcrit language needed ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yeah, I hope it’ll be the good kind of busy. Good luck with getting stuff done despite the tiredness! <3
