You may recall that I declared November Gerald's Poetry Writing Month in preparation for Nerve Cowboy's 2010 chapbook contest. My goal was a contest maximum forty poems, and the tally stands at forty-seven. Coming up with a theme for the book, I've cut twenty-three of the forty-seven for a contest minimum twenty-four poems. Who predicted this would happen? Anyway, I'll spend the next day or two shuffling the poems into order. I may decide to include a few more. Will report back when the manuscript is in the mail.
