Housekeeping, Housekeeping (was “And Then, Speaking of Poems . . .”)
So it has to be done now and again. At the end of last month, August 31, I added a note to my post on poetry to the effect that I’d updated my biographical information, such as is sent out with submissions, etc., to reflect that my combined new poetry and prose fiction publications had recently surpassed 500 in number. Not really a brag — suffice that it’s a lot, but I’d think hardly a record of any sort — but a little housekeeping thing that needed to be done. So today I’ve added another tweak, this time to this blog, in adding that update to my biographical “ABOUT ME” blurb at the top of the right hand column. And one other tweak: while it’s still in the future, and this one is a brag of sorts, I’ve added at the top of that bio a note about my to-be-published book TOMBS: A CHRONICLE OF LATTER-DAY TIMES OF EARTH.
For after all, if not I, someone’s got to do it.
