I'm glad me can finally get down to business Meaghan.

Well, I have to admit, I have not done that much writing lately as I have started my job and continue to go to school full time. It is rather exhausting that I don't get much writing done (hoping that will change once the semester is done though).

Anyways, I did one thing that I really love recently and that is writing poetry. I started a poem in December with the intention of it being a longer poem with parts to it. Anyways, I had written the first part, which was 3 8 line stanzas long. Then I forgot about it until about a few weeks ago. I pulled it out and realized I had a poem in the works and its not terrible so I should finish it and make it something great. So I did. Its not finished-finished. There could be some editing and tweaking still. But the writing part is finished.

So it was quite exciting to get back into writing my first love -- poetry. As much as I love fiction. Poetry is my first love. And so this felt great as I hadn't really been writing much poetry lately. I felt uninspired and like I just couldn't write it anymore. Now that I've written this and gotten past the blockage, I feel silly about thinking I couldn't do it. Anyways, I'm hoping there will be much more poetry writing in the recent future.

In other news, I've done some submitting of poetry to some literary journals/magazines. I still have not heard back from the last batch, but it does take a long time for replies. In total, I've submitted to 7, with one rejection and 6 no-replies as of yet.
