I now have 20 poems, edited and binder-clipped. Are they the best 20 that I wrote in November as part of the Poem-A-Day Chapbook Challenge? I have no idea — but there they are, clipped together in such a fashion that I can flip through them like a book and see which poems will pair up on opposite pages. The next step is for me to carry around this binder-clipped wad for a few days, read through it until I’m sick of it, maybe make a few more edits, print the whole thing out again (sorry, Earth), probably undo some of my edits, and then finally send it off. Will this be my first chapbook that actually gets published? I don’t know … but as always, the work of putting it together has been a good exercise.
