Welcome to my home

Where the vultures lay to rest

and inanity ceases to exist

Pull apart from strings of conformity

and rest your weary head

  9. I just tried posting this somewhere and it didn’t post. Hopefully it’ll post here. Begin: Nice stats for your first year. I was going to compare them to mine but the only poem I dated was my FIRST EVER ACDEPTANCE!! on 8/28/14. Ha! I only recently began writing down the dates of my acceptance letters this October 2016. I have 13 sheets of yellow paper with 25 lines on each and I have 14 of them. Some of them are poems published at the same place. I am literally on line one of page 14. Actually some of these are not even published yet. I know I’ve been published in Otoliths 4 or 5 times now and Duane’s PoeTree 4 or 5 times with an interview due out soon. I only counted one of my interviews but all anthologies are marked and included. I didn’t count my 2 (soon to be 3) chapbooks. So whatever 13 times 25 is, that’s how many times I’ve been published since 8/28/14. But, like I said, there are several journals that published me more than once. So I just did the math. 13 times 25 is 325. I always thought it was higher than that. More like 350 when I counted by hand like a month ago. So, maybe make that 325 a 330 (just to lowball) because there are spots where I put acceptances above the main line of the first page. I guess I’m a bad counter. Ha! I best get back into submitting like I was when I first began but I’ve got so many new responsibilities. That number’s pretty pathetic for 2 years and 4 months. I was dumb though and wasted a lot of time submitting to corrupt places like Ploughshares and Subtropics, where I stood no chance whatsoever. My first 3 submissions were to Poetry Magazine! HA! Also I somehow got 8 poems published before I even knew what a cover letter was! Lucky there. One of these days I’m going to count the poems themselves because this is really disappointing to me. There are over 8 places that have published all 5 of my poems at once before though, so hopefully the poem number will be much higher than the acceptance total (for instance Madness Muse Magazine was marked once but had 2 poems in it so it was only counted once). Sorry for the rant. You just keep workin’ like the workhorse you are and you’ll be at 1,000 in no time. Also, kudos on not waiting until you were THIRTY-FOUR f*****n’ years old to begin submitting over 20 years worth of your writings! Meanwhile I’ve got to get out of this “funk” I’ve been in and start submitting more often than once every 3 or 4 days (if THAT!!). I need to get back to my “one submission a day no matter what” rule. That’s when I was raking in the acceptance letters. Even though I got 2 today, they were already counted so they can’t be added. No more submitting to corrupt places like Ploughshares and Fence for me. I’m only choosing targets I have a good shot at hitting. HA! Congrats on your success though. Scott Thomas Outlar was recently named Poet of the Year by a certain poetry group. I think he definitely deserves it, though I was thinking Adam Levon Brown is really the only one who gave him a run for his money in that category. Keep on truckin’ man!

    • Wow, thank you, Heath. You always have a kind word for me. Meeting you and other sections of the poetry community has really been my biggest accomplishment this year. I love the support and inspiration that we all give each other. Much love, my brother.

  10. Hi there, You’ve done a great job. I’ll definitely digg it and personally recommend to my friends.
    I am sure they’ll be benefited from this web site.
