Now, I realize that the heat hovering over us throughout the good ol’ US of A has drained our brains. It is nearly impossible to think, much less think straight. So I will understand if you wrap a cold towel around your head and go back to whatever you were doing to cool off. In fact, use your cold-towel wrapped time for thinking.
The Writer’s Market and Poet’s Market (2013) is still looking for articles and I bet, if you put your feet up and drink lots of ice cold tea, you can think up something brilliant! The deadline’s been extended to August 8th, so you have a couple weeks to mull over ideas.
But even more exciting, the Poet’s Market is accepting poems for the 2013 edition! You could get $50 and a copy of the 2013 Poet’s Market, not to mention the cool bragging that goes along with publication.
So go find whatever’s left of your brain and crank out some ideas. Try to remember to write something down. And when it cools off, you can worry about the details. ‘Cause honestly, it may actually be hot enough for me.
