As a starving grad student, I’m ever in need of funds.
So, if anyone needs an editor or proofreader, I have over five years of experience as a professional editor, a BA in English, and an MA in Education. If any of y’all know of someone who could use an editor, I’ve created a flyer with basic info. Drop me a line and I’ll email it to you.
I am just so tired.

so, i’m reading Black Book of Poems and i haven’t been this frustrated with poetry since the first time i read Milton. i keep having to pause and roll my eyes, and i do not understand all the rave reviews. these poems are so forced! so trite! i feel like i wrote this kind of stuff as a preteen, and then i feel guilty for feeling like that, but seriously.
all the rhyming. ALL THE RHYMING. every single poem so far has rhymed, for fuck’s sake. SO MUCH FORCED RHYMING.
i’m gonna finish it, if only so i can add it to my book log. (which, yes, i am keeping again. 17 so far!)
and, to be fair, there are some good lines in here. they’re just difficult to find because of all the R H Y M I N G.
so, i’m gonna submit a manuscript to a poetry competition. I have 2: one for general poetry and one for fairy tales. I like them both equally, so I need help deciding which to submit.
anyone wanna read ‘em and discuss with me?
