I very often make to-do lists but I never do all the stuff on them so it’s kind of a pointless exercise, and even more pointless no doubt is to announce it here. However, it’s late, I’m high as a kite (yes, that’s a tired old metaphor, but whatever) and I’m falling asleep in front of the computer screen, so that’s going to be my blog for tonight.
But the proof is in the doing and not in the list making, so this weekend I’m keeping it simple and I’ve only got one thing on the list. This weekend I’m going to work on putting together my next book. Taking the stuff I’ve got, titling it and spacing it so I’ve got as many of the poems as possible on one page, not that I mean I want lots of poems on one page, but I mean I want each poem to start and end on its own page, which will not always be possible, because two or three of them are long. Then, I’ll look through the random lists of uncollected poetry, checking against my published books to make sure they actually haven’t been used yet and if not, and if they’re not embarrassingly bad, which a few are, they’ll go in the next book, too. Maybe I’ll get the introduction written.
So,it’s one item, but broken down into a few separate units to make things easier.
