Can It Get Easier?

1) I made an agreement with my coach to spend one hour a week researching where to submit or submitting three poems. It’s a bit like a job description – two years of experience can be substituted for one year of school. One hour of research or three poems, which ever comes first.
2) Duotrope sends me an email each week with new markets, closed markets and themed markets. I keep it in my inbox until I use it.
4) When I complete my 3 poem/1 hour process, I (with a self-satisfied sigh, all guilt banished) go into my Word doc weekly calendar and type: Poetry – done.
Then I pour myself a large glass of cheap wine. I’m a poet.
