The Poison Pen
Well, it happened today, and I have to say I’m just a bit excited. This uncouth, somewhat raunchy, fat bottom girl got her very first poem published in an actual publication, not just something I printed out of my garage on that old mimeograph machine.
It’s the first time I’ve ever had anything published, and I’m so glad it’s on Elephant Journal. Have you ever checked out Elephant Journal? It’s got a little bit of everything–poetry, astrology, relationship advice, healthy living, yoga–really, just a plethora of knowledge from tons of different authors. Best part is, it’s almost free. I say almost, because you can read three articles each day for free. I could never stop at three, so I bought a subscription for a mere $13 for a whole year, and it’s been some of the best money I’ve ever spent.
But without further ado, please, I’m begging you, go read, share with your friends, stay to read a couple more articles. Most of all, enjoy, as I’m hoping this is a first in a long line of published writing for me.
Congratulations! I’m so happy for you.
Thanks Amy! I’m hoping it will be a motivator to devote a bit more time to writing. lol
Absolutely! This will be one of many. I checked at the Elephant site. It looks really cool. They say have a readership of 24 millions per month. That’s awesome! You’ve connected with a great one!
Thanks so much Amy!
Congrats. See you as a guest on late night TV
Fantastic! How exciting for you. Congrats!
After reading it, it’s easy to understand why your poem was included. Beautifully crafted — It evokes images, emotion and truth. Well done, my dear 😉
Thanks so much Ned! Means a lot coming from you. 🙂
Reblogged this on Writings From Dr. Oolie's Pond.
Thanks so much Dan!!
You’re welcome. 🙂
Great news. Congratulations! When you are you doing a poets tour?
Lol. I didn’t even know there was such a thing!
Het be a trailblazer and start one. If you make a stop in CO I will buy you a drink after the performance.
I’ll just come and read you a few if you’re going to buy me a drink! Lol
Congratulations! So exciting! and nice to see your face too…
Thanks Lucia!! I was hesitant about the photo since I had only posted a full face photo one other time and I ended up taking it down.
No one is more deserving of being published than you. Truly one of the most dedicated writers I have ever known.
You have earned all the accolades you will receive
Thanks, I appreciate that!
I’m catching up after a long time away. Good for you! Brava! Kudos! Well done! Publication is AWESOME, sister! Way to go! xoxoB
