Feeling Hood Rich Famous

Earlier, I got an e-mail from someone asking if I was the poet who wrote this poem (“Gute Natch”). I didn’t remember the line he quoted until he pointed me to this Google search where it’s been reblogged and quoted like mad for two days. I did some digging through Tumblr and found where it began. I am incredibly honored and floored at the amount of attention this poem has gotten, so much that I tweeted a thank you to the person who quoted it and started this craze.

I finished a draft of the third novella, Dancing With Steinbrenner. It’s clocks in at 12,000 words. I’m letting it breathe a little before I go in and start playing with it. I’m proud of accomplishing this on many levels. I feel myself building up to something bigger. 2012 is going to be a very interesting year.

Speaking of big, I’ll be part of a big Vouched Presents show in Atlanta on April 6, 2012, featuring Matt Bell, Tyler Gobble, Brian Oliu, Christopher Newgent, and Melysa Martinez. This is going to be a goddamn epic. More details to come.

I read my poem “The New Year” for Orange Alert. You should listen to it here.
