Thanks for your generous estimation of my work, Laura. I hesitate to say this too loudly for fear of hexing myself, but I’m hoping to really push myself this month. Other folks are doing NaPoWriMo and writing a new poem a day, and that’s great, but what would be more of a novelty for me is not to post poems until I’m convinced they’re as good as I can get them — without losing that first-draft freshness.
