What’s up? In recent months, I’ve been fighting against Covid Racist Apartheid. This activism has kept me energized and motivated to do good for others. My kids have also been home for 10 weeks to keep them safe. To date, their school has had six classes quarantined. All of this is to say that writing and editing have been tough.
But, I am finding my balance again.
This week, I have been meditating on my poetry craft. Journaling about it. Been thinking a lot about the poetry advice from Matt Sedillo about honing your own craft. I have been fascinated by Tongo Eisen-Martin’s meditating about poetry. In short, I’ve been thinking about my writing strengths. I feel and think I am coming into my voice in a way that’s legit.
In fact, all of this work pushed me to revise “Sex Camaro,” now titled “Digital Sex.” I submitted it and two other poems “Jesucristo Santifianos” and “Red Wine, Roque” and was glad to find they had been published by Somos en Escrito Magazine.
The journey continues.
