So, today I was Out There, reading one of my poems ('Fight Club', check out newleaf Issue 26) to the general (unsuspecting) public.
It went well, seeing as how this was the first time I ever read my stuff to, you know, people, as opposed to the walls of my room. They laughed, not because I managed to garble up all the words or fall off the stage headfirst, but because there were actually a few funny lines in there.
How glad I am that the newleaf editorial team invited me. How glad I am I was there. How glad I am I did not fall off that stage!
(Also, I wrote three poems and a flash today. It really was a damn good day. I'd very much like to have more of these.)
