Fuck, I’m cold. Icy spindrift (or rain, or both) rolls down my face. I let go of the side rope to wipe it off, so of course the boat lurches and here I am: butt down in the bilge where the wave-slosh has been collecting ankle-deep. Ugh. I drag myself back up onto the seat. This is a royal storm of joy. My jeans are soaked.
|What I Write||
I write mainstream and speculative poetry and speculative novels. I have a passionate interest in how mythic patterns play out in people’s lives (especially ballads–they’re all betrayal and cruelty and tragic love, just like your life, right?) so that tends to be a big factor in the stories I tell.
I have three books and a CD of poetry and over 150 poems in various venues. Even a little fiction out there. See http://www.neilegraham.com/poemsetc.html for a complete list.
I will write the first draft of a poem a week, which I will share in a weekly report with my sponsors and supporters. As a stretch goal I hope to add at least 1,000 words a week to my novel-in-progress, The Silver Bones. Doesn’t sound like much, but it’s not easy to do while helping run the workshop!
I hope to surpass both the $ amount and the number of donors who supported me last year.
