Congratulations, Charmi! Hip-hip hooray! Go out and celebrate if you haven't already done so. As for a bio...you printed a great one in last year's Analecta.
Thanks, Talia, but there's no need to celebrate. Being published is celebration enough.I don't know about the Analecta bio. I looked at the bios on their website and they were all so serious.
Congrats...I'm cursing everything right now.. even the second hand. I am going to be in chicago on the 21st.. I guess I have no choice, but to go to one of the Chicory meetings to make up for it.
Thanks, guys. It's your turn now. Send away.Yes, Chad, get your butt over to The Chicory. Ryan, you've already promised!
Charmi,That's great, but it was inevitable. It's a greatpiece. Just speak from theheart for the bio. Not tooserious, but NOT too cuteand clever either. It's a niceproblem to have either way . . .Good going . . .
If you want to be serious, mention what you do for a living (whatever it is), where you go to school, where you live, etc. But the Analecta one is much more intersting...maybe make it a combo of interstig and serious.
Good job, Charmi! I liked that piece before I even knew who had written it! :)
Thanks, David. It definitely feels like I'm standing in a different place today. I was never aware of any inevitability, though, just possibility - which is what you give to your students and why you're such an excellent teacher. Can I get an amen?
Rachel! Good to see you! Will you be able to make it Friday? I'm anxious to catch up.
Jesus - what the heck does that mean?!
Thank you, Naoko. Now we must work on your submissions! If I can get published you can definitely get published. You're miles ahead of me. And, I saw your artwork & poems at Barnes & Noble yesterday. They look great, but I was sad I went on Sunday because there were way too many people.
Go Charmi!I haven't even read it yet... But I will!
Thanks, Mike. You can find it somewhere on this blog.Have you started submitting, or are you still working exclusively on polishing for the MFA stuff right now? I think submitting would be a good part of the process.
Thank you, Charmi! I am glad that you like the art.
Super Sweet! The greater South Bend area is slowly becoming a literary hot bed.I like the sound of "The South Bend School."
Okay, I have to admit, "The South Bend School" does have a ring.
How about "Los Super Dupers" or "Writing for the Funk of It" or "Yeah, Yeah That's Good" or "I'm Better Than You" or "House of Letters" or, my favorite "DDL's Bastards"
Now we seem to be picking up steam. I suppose I'm going to have to make a list, let everyone vote... The joys of democracy.
DDL's Bastard Children. HA. I have two classes with the mysterious man net semester, if all goes as planned. Whatever our name is, our slogan must be "There's more than corn in Indiana." Oh, wait...I think that one's taken. How about "Yes, we can read and write too." :) I'm gonna have fun with this.
Charmi:Sorry to be so late to say congratulations, but CONGRATULATIONS!
Thanks for stopping by, Greg. And thanks for the congratulations! I really enjoy reading your blog. I saw you up at Kalamazoo and I should have introduced myself, but the crush of people! What a nice reading and evening, though.
