I feel almost unqualified to ask this question, since I spend 58% of my time sulking, but in the remainder of my time I am happy. And I wondered if you are more inspired by your happy times or by your sulky or sad or pouty times. If you have those, of course.
Lately I think that I'm most inspired when the happy intersects with the sulky. I've even tried to write about it. For this reason, I am glad that I am not happy all of the time.

Take a peek at John Gallaher's new book cover. Its official release date is in April, but we'll be debuting the book at AWP Chicago, so you can get your signed copy before everyone else does. And then you can gloat.
Speaking of new covers, here's the sunny new issue of Barn Owl Review, which will also make its debut at AWP. One of the unique features of this issue is that it contains a crossword puzzle based on all of the writing inside. Read the issue, and then do the puzzle. What could be better?
