Phew. What a difference a day makes. I thought January was over, but it had more in store, writing wise. Firstly, three more rejections came through. Then, I was confused as I checked Submittable and it looked different and I automatically looked to the declined list, and nothing had changed, only to realise a poem had been accepted and should be published soon.
Then I was looking around on Twitter and found an erasure poem generator popup experiment hosted by a journal I follow. I know, if you don’t know what erasure poetry is, that sentence reads like word salad, but, it is fun to scribble all over a novel or an old text book. Anyway, I had a look at this generator, copied and pasted in some text out of a famous, out of copyright novel, and this software did the work for me and generated some poems. Six I deemed ok enough to save. Three were made into a sequence and submitted. Then, these three poems were accepted, just like that.
So that was one extremely satisfactory Sunday evening, generated.
