where i've been
« on: May 03, 2013, 11:08 AM »
thought i'd save myself some time & trouble--

pasted from personal message:

dear __,

-sorry i'm replying so much later. at the time, i was frustrated with the lack of dialogue--more importantly, i was becoming obsessed with publishing, and couldn't submit poems that were indexed on search engines. that became a real dealbreaker. most importantly, i just became very, very busy--it's not an exaggeration to say that i've been on panic mode for the last 8 months, trying to finish the dissertation.

i defend on may 15th, then revisions by the 28th--so i thought maybe it will be time to return. despite frustrations, i did enjoy the alley, and it was nice to have a community of poets.
