Update: Babies, Grad School, etc.

Since this is my personal blog, I think I'll get personal for a post or two...

Things have been busy for me recently with the holidays, school and of course my ever growing family. My wife gave birth to our second child, a boy, about two weeks ago. All is well. We had him in the first week of school so my brain is now completely shot. I have been behind on a lot of writing stuff, especially my editing duties at The Shantytown Anomaly and Spec House of Poetry. If you are waiting on something from me, please be patient, I honestly have not stepped foot in my home office for three weeks now.

In other, yet related news, a few of you expressed interest on my pursuit of a graduate school writing program. I have decided on an MFA program and I will be attending McNeese State University's Program in Poetry, starting this fall. I will be able to teach and write and I can't wait to get down there.

More later. (possibly)

Congrats on the MFA program. And on the new little one. I understand how busy you've been. Good luck in getting quickly to a point where you can do some more writing.
