AngelSpeak on Hiatus

In case you weren’t aware, we’re in the middle of a full-on kitchen remodel over here. The bad news is: I have little time for regular posting while the madness invades my home. The good news is: it should all be finished by the end of the month. So, AngelSpeak is officially going on hiatus until May 1 when I will return in full force with Poets & Writers’ prompts, interviews, book reviews and more. Until then, keep your hats on!

And thanks for being such loyal and amazing readers.


So, This Is What Happened.

I took a trip overseas for a couple of weeks. The first week, I was dedicated to daily posting. Because this blog is dedicated to literary topics – I struggled a bit. I struggled because I was out of my routine. I wasn’t keeping up with my reading. I wasn’t keeping up with my writing. The second week, well, I went to Munich. And I know it’s completely understandable that one might get a bit sidetracked while walking the streets of Munich. But then an unexpected thing happened. I become unplugged. Rather than checking my email, my facebook, my blog stats, I was outside walking, exploring, taking pictures and sitting in the park.

I’ll admit. It was a little uncomfortable at first. My attention span has apparently shrunk to next to nothing. And that, I have to say, is more than a little disturbing.

Did You Miss Me?

Hello, lovely readers,

I’ve been in renovation mode this week – which means something absolutely MUST go wrong. This time – it was the severing and subsequent burying of my phone line under several hundred pounds of fresh concrete. I’m pleased to report that AT&T has found a fix and I am officially back online. Poetry Weekly and other related posts will be forthcoming over the weekend. Also keep a look out for an interview with poet Annie Finch and a new edition of Editor Spotlight.

Until then, happy surfing!
