1. What are you working on?

Always a few things at once – Right now I have about 2 short story collections, 4 poetry manuscripts, & 2 novels in some stage of completion. I’m 4 poems shy of completing a linked new poetry manuscript that started as my April 30/30 month, & I’m struggling with 2 short stories that I’ve gotten about half-done & then tapped out on.
