I know that some of you were probably expecting a new poem/prompt today, but instead I want to explain why I will be taking a short break from the Mixtape posts.
I have had very little creative energy lately, which I’m hoping will be cured by my annual pilgrimage to the Iowa Summer Writing Festival next week. In the meantime, now that school is out, I am going to attempt to reduce the amount of time I spend worrying about keeping up with “projects” or internet-type things I feel I should be doing and increase the amount of time I spend reading and writing.
I’m sure that I will update from Iowa – and the Mixtape will be back – but I am giving myself the next two weeks off to concentrate on what a writer needs to do – write. If I have something to share, I’ll be here. Otherwise, I’ll see you in July.
