sorry i haven't been posting much. things were going really well for a while. they still are. but i've gotten to the really icky part of my even though things are still going really well, they've been rough.

i want to write so badly...i just don't have words right now. i'm not sure when i'll get my next positive post up...they're also pretty hard to keep doing. i haven't been that great about writing things down...consistency is hard these days.

gee, i guess i should have title this post...hard. cuz that's what it is now. but in a good way.

see you around everyone!

i'm getting published!

Dear artist,

Thank you for your submission for the Purple Poetry Book. We loved your poem and would like to use it in the book but with some changes. We would like to use only Bunkbed I, not Bunkbed II and III. If this is an acceptable change for you, please let me know. Also, we’ll need to know what name you would like the poem published under and a 2-3 line bio of the author for the book. Thanks!
