I’m very happy to have another event to share, a virtual poetry fest with The New England Poetry Club. There will be 3 hours of poets sharing work! I’m looking forward to hearing and meeting some new people. You can sign up here:

Since losing my job in January, I’ve been doing some on-line teaching. Specifically English as a foreign language. And I really enjoy it! So much so that I decided to get a TEFL/TESOL Certificate! Hopefully I will be teaching very soon.

Which also means I haven’t been writing very much. Self-discipline, I know. How do you do it? Promise yourself a reward? a treat? or maybe the reward is having new work. Hmmm. There’s something to that.

So let me know how you do it. Or your favorite prompt. Or your favorite writing spot. I’d love to hear from you!
