Anyway, like I've said before, somehow being solicited makes this better for me, more proud-making. And I'm thrilled at the opportunity. I hope it will lead to bigger things!
And part of me just wants to do a goofy-girly dance and scream like a little bitch!
I'm getting published!!!!!
My kids are so proud of me. That's the best part. Scotty hasn't said a word, I don't know what that means. And Mom is going to want to read it, which is scary, I've never let her read my work, I think most of it would upset her, hurt her feelings. I found myself omitting certain poems with her in mind. That sucked. Some of my favorite poems didn't go in because of her, and some of the ones I did send in the manuscript will kill her anyway.
I probably shouldn't have told her anything about it, approach it like I do my sexuality! What she don't know won't hurt her... but then, maybe it's time she knew eh?
I titled it Poetic Acceptance, what else would I call it? And maybe she'll just have to accept.
Anyway, next week we'll be buying the domain name, so a week or so after that I can start the NC/SC Website & Forum. I've been so busy with Versifier and Shaela that I've barely had time to think about exactly what I want to do with it. And I've got to get to work on some other stuff too, or I'll never be done by deadline with it. But today, I think I'm going to take off, mostly. I'm tired and frazzled and grumpy. I really need to sleep more, but my brain won't shut up long enough to fall asleep until I'm so exhausted that my body just over rides it.
It's rainy and grey and it's all swooshy outside. Terra got up super early today (6am) so she'll be going back to bed soon. I think I'll try a nap when she does.
