bit

i hate it when poets whine. i hate the po-biz. i didn't get the residency. i don't think i'm a writer. don't you?

can i tell you something? i've hit a wall. a wall of self-doubt. i won't bore you with the gory details.

I kinda like the po-biz. I've never applied for a residency. Do people actually say that third one? Seriously, just the thought of a supposed poet saying that sets my teeth on edge.

Eduardo, you're a gifted writer. Don't get discouraged! If I were a publisher, I'd publish you!

Hang in, E! We'll drink, eat, gossip at the loaf. You better bring poems for me to read. Because I've been dying to see a bunch of your poems all together instead of wandering around in ones and twos.

Deal?

I hate when that happens. It will pass. ((Hug))

Did I hear someone mention gory details???????

Share. Don't tease.

If it's about your book, sleep your way to the top. That's what I did.

Self-doubt shit happens. It alternates with the confidence and authority. We all do both. Any poet who doesn't have some self doubt some of the time is lying.

Go to BL in August, as Leslie said. Have a great time. It will clear the head.
