Greetings, faithful reader!
Generally, I avoid using exclamation points. They are one of the most useless punctuation marks ever invented. I don't need a little dot and a line to tell my audience to be excited or angry or emotional. However, I am recovering from a low blood sugar, and it's been a really long day. Plus I don't have anything very exciting to write. Therefore, I will indulge in the exclamation point to try to generate a little enthusiasm.
If you are wondering how my poetry reading went yesterday, I will tell you. I had a really good time. I think I read well, and my poems were well-received. They made people laugh, which is what I was hoping. My newest poem, "Bow Rye," made a really strong impression. I was shocked. Of course, there was hardly anybody there, but the reading was still good. The other poets were wonderful writers and readers.
Today I had a book signing at a local bookstore. Nobody showed up to buy my book. I did a book exchange with one of the other poets there. In the last day, I've picked up three new books of poems through exchanges. It's been great.
Tonight I get to watch The Lawrence Welk Show. I don't know why I feel so tired right now. I haven't really done anything today, besides drinking a chai tea and talking about writing. I did draw a new cartoon, but that's about it. I plan on continuing my trend of lethargy.
Saint Marty is ready for another nap.
