leaden ventures

We went out walking in the mountains today, mostly because the dog was begging to go. It's been unseasonably warm, though I don't know what that means anymore. It rained a little and if I had to pick a shade of grey, I'd say it was rat-pallor grey.

I'm pleased to say Whiskey Island accepted three of my poems: Curtains, God Have Pity on the Smell of Gasoline and Ingrid Wears Bangs. Spring issue.

In other worlds, let's say the stated response time has elapsed by a big margin - do you still withdraw a poem that’s been accepted elsewhere? I would if I could do it via email, but in many cases it involves posting a letter overseas, sometimes the second such letter to the publication (in addition to the original submission). I figure if the response time is way over and they haven’t gotten in touch, it's the equivalent of a rejection. On the other hand, I don't want to piss anyone off. I just don’t think I’m the only one who should hold up her side of the bargain.

Hi Sarah,

Like the rat-pallor grey description.
Lovely photo and loads of congrats on the acceptance - nice name for a magazine and I think I remember a few of those poems from 10:10 :)

What is your dog's name?

Her name is Stella. Though she sometimes earns other names.
