a mini-rant (a.k.a. now what?)

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving holiday...All I can say is that I am glad mine included apple pie.

A literary question for fellow poets/prose writers: What does one do when a journal fails to send contributors' copies as promised?

Oh...I won't mention any names.

Let's just say that some half dozen emails and several promises later said copies (published around six months ago) have not arrived.

This irritates me.

Do I just let it go? I am tired, tired, tired of asking.

Yet it seems screwy that I never got them.

I suppose it's all part of the (sometimes thankless) writing life.

That apple pie looks fantastic! I have a horrible craving for some now! Screw that traditional pumpkin pie - for me it's apple all the way!!!!

And that list of things every poet should know is pretty hilarious - and for the most part, pretty true!

Susan said...

Okay, now I'll definitely have to bake you an apple pie!

Soon, honest.


BTW, I have also scored a bottle of blackberry wine. I think it would go very well with pie.

Melissa said...

You found the blackberry wine?!?!


Blackberry wine and apple pie with vanilla ice cream sounds like just about the best thing ever.

I think this calls for a gathering of some sort.

Sounds like a good time to me!
