I promised myself that I would start blogging again in February and update at least once a week for the rest of the year. And here it is the last day of the first week in February. . . .
If I don't post something before midnight, my New Year's resolutions will all turn into pumpkins, so here's a quick review of my last year's writing credits, sort of the clip-show episode of blogposts (except I've been so lazy about blogging in the last year that all this information is actually new).
I obviously haven't been writing here, but looking back, I did write and submit a fair bit in 2014.
I've had some poetry published.
Poetry Quarterly (the most prosaic name for a poetry publication the editor could think of), Summer 2014.
The most recent Poet's Market, a publication I actually use a fair bit, so I was excited to have an example poem published here.
I wrote an essay titled "Mother Alfred: The Influence of Dick Grayson's 'Other Parent'" for an upcoming publication on Dick Grayson (McFarland, July 2015), which I'm absolutely tickled about.
(Possibly the dorkiest thing I've ever done.)
(And that's including this. Me as Gandalf the White for the opening of The Return of the King. Not even embarrassed.)
There are a couple other small publishing credits coming up, which I will mention here when they come out (or when I'm running out of actual blogging material).
