It’s not even ten am yet and already I have been hard at work on the computer, but am not yet dressed!
First thing–saw that Silver Birch has posted my poem What we took with us when we moved, as a part of their moving day series–warning, this one is sad.
Here’s a link to the post. Thank you!

A writer’s work is never done!
I am busy working on PR, blog hops etc for Summer in a Bowl and also at the same time working on poems, my usual quota of articles, and coordinating with my publisher on revisions in the texts of the NEXT TWO Rosa books–Rosa and the Red Apron and Rosa’s Shell
Heather Zeissler of THEAQLLC has been wonderful to work with.
If you want me to come to your school to talk about the process of writing picture books or to talk to your group about how I got started writing picture books, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

So, I am participating in the Tupelo Press 30/30 again this February.
Each day I will be posting a new poem–obviously these fresh creations have not gone through the usual agonizing revisions that characterize most of my work.
These are raw–amazing what some others do at even the raw stage of art, but for me, this process is a great challenge, a time to have , albeit virtual an increased friendship with other poets. There are nine of us doing this each month and I have bonded with my group of nine already…well some.. and hope to connect with the others as the month goes on.
You can learn all about the project and how to support the work of poets in general by making a contribution to Tupelo Press–in my name if you do it this month, please!
