Mondays, man.


Good News Mondays are BACK. Not that they were ever here to begin with...but they kind of were. Whatever.

ANYWAY. Every Monday this blog will feature a GOOD NEWS article. Something like....EARTHQUAKE REGISTERS 9.4 ON THE RICHTER SCALE AND NO ONE IS HURT! You know. Something that's the opposite of what most of the rest of "the news" tends to be. Good s---t happens. It just doesn't get much attention. This is my little grassroots effort to change check back on Mondays for a shot of GOOD NEWS to start your week!

Have Mercy On Me, Father Goose!

Well, it was an honor just to be nominated. Oh, wait. No one was nominated. I volunteered. Ok, well it's been an honor to be in the company of so many amazing authors for the March Madness Poetry Competition!

in a nutshell- we are all assigned a random (read: totally insane) word that we MUST incorporate into a kid friendly poem of 8 lines or less. That's round one. Among the 64 of us are names like Jane Yolen, Kenn Nesbitt and Eric Ode. I am pitted against Charles Ghigna, aka Father Goose and quite possibly, am going down in flames. Though ya just never know, right?! Yay for subjective opinions!

If you want to check out our match....and/or the contest here:

And wish me luck!
