Monday, I received a very nice letter from Bluestem informing me that they nominated my poem “Interior Decorating” for a Pushcart Prize. I haven’t been nominated for a lot of things (Best of the Net three times) so to see the letter (which was classy of them) was incredibly validating. Seeing it reminded me of the importance of remaining persistent, true to yourself when you are creating art. My odds are winning are low and I know this. As the saying go, it’s just an honor to be nominated.
I thought I was taking a hiatus from Jesus Christ, Boy Detective and I am happily wrong. I’m working on another one, just had two stories accepted. You can actually read the one I wrote for the Christmas issue of Danse Macabre here.
Two of my Porn for the Blind poems are over at The Squawk Back, which you can check out here.
Also, there’s my latest sex/dating advice column as flash fiction over at Heavy Feather Review here.
