Headed to the Outer Banks in a few. Will bring some of the No Tell submissions sent last week that struck me for closer consideration, some journals to review for NewPages and the latest issue of InStyle (fall fashions!). Hopefully I'll get some writing done too. But this all probably much too ambitious of a plan. I am headed to beach, for God's sake.

Oh man, I'm so wicked jealous. Sure I went in July. But that was then and this is now. Say hi to the pelicans for me.

Reb, NoTell Motel! I think having the poet put in some thoughts on their work allows me, the reader, an 'in' into the poem that I otherwise would have passed by, like a door that's not interesting enough to warrant rattling the doorknob. Snaps!

Greg, unfortunately I was not as prolific during my visit as you were.

Ivy, thanks. I like learning about the background of a poem too -- after I have already read it.
