It's 1:30 pm and I can cross "finish draft of syllabus #3" off my to-do list.
This leaves "write a poem for Tuesday night poetry group meeting" at the top of my list.
So here is the conundrum: I am in my office, and will need to stay here for the rest of the day. Thus, it looks like I will need to (gasp!) write a poem in my office, instead of up in my studio sans distractions (except for four cats) and in super comfy clothes.
I wonder if I can do it.
The new poem I'm fondest of right now, "The Flyers," was composed at the Hampton Inn in Bowling Green, Ohio. But otherwise I just don't take it on the road. I revise on the road, in my office, etc, but that's about it.
I will either end up with an interesting experiment or no poem at all. In the meantime, I will thrill myself by reading selections from my English 452: Modern American Poetry coursepack. Perhaps I will get a nap out of this as well.
If only I had this bad boy in my office...
Any other poets/writers HAVE TO be in one particular place when writing, or am I just a delicate organism?
