A good meeting at Panera Bread with a couple of folks to discuss political writing.I would like for this group to take off, but if it remains we three that's fine, too.
Doing final editing of my poetry manuscript before sending it off. I am pleased with it, regardless of whether it is accepted or rejected. That is the important thing, to write for the sake of writing and communicating, not for some empty recognition by the "poetry world."

OS has really been helpful to me as a writer--the feedback and opportunity to read others' writing. The folks I have contact with are interesting and creative. What more could you ask from a blog site.
I don't care about the front page or making money from ads. Since I began on OS in '09, my writing production has been great, a result of blogging every day, for one thing, and the feedback, the latter improving the result.
I am reading a book on introversion. The introvert feels uncomfortable with a lot of interaction but that doesn't mean he doesn't like people. That's me.
