A good day. I revised a problematic poem titled "Feeding Season," and I think due to some insightful suggestions, it is a much better poem now. It has more details and more interesting line breaks, and I suspect could improve even more with time and care. I'm growing impatient, so maybe it's now to hold back and revise. Now this leaves me wondering if I should send the manuscript back now or at the end of the summer. I think I will call to see if they read over the summer or not. Yes, I will do that. I'm scared I've been taking too long.
I've written a number of new pieces, but think I will work on them throughout the summer and send them out in the fall, since that's when most magazines start reading again.
