Finally, I've recovered and caught up with life after AWP. I would talk about my AWP experience, but the only people who really want to know about AWP go to AWP, and if you've been to AWP, you don't need someone to ramble on about it, so I won't. I will mention that I sat in on some good panels and some bad panels. I heard D.A. Powell read, which was fantastic, and went to a great reading by folks from Black Lawrence Press (check out Lisa Fay Coutley's chapbook) and Devil's Lake (check out everything in this magazine).
As part of the recovering process, I spent all day yesterday cleaning out my closet. It's a large closet-- it doubles as Matthew's office-- so there was quite a bit to organize. I still haven't gone through any of the maybe 30 books and magazine I collected at the bookfair. I just finished unpacking yesterday. It's been slow-going, but I'm getting there.
