In keeping with my abiding obsession with Doctor Who, I feel compelled to share with you this marvelous trailer celebrating The Doctor's upcoming 50th anniversary on television.  Enjoy it!  I know I did.

Submission continued

It's been almost exactly one year since I began submitting my fiction and poetry to various publications.  This morning, I found this in my inbox:

"Hi Seth,

We'd like to include your poem 'The Japanese Garden' in our next issue of Ruckus!"

As Dale Gribble would say: "Shuh-sha!"

The letter continues, asking for a revision of the second stanza.  I am stoked that some stranger gave a close enough reading of the piece to see the need for this, but slightly stumped as to what to do about it.  I'll think of something though.

Ruckus is a local publication, run by students of the University of Washington.  You can read PDFs of past issues here.  I am intrigued to learn how my humble poem about grandmothers and frogs will fit in with the tone of the publication, and also excited.  Once the new issue is out, I'll repost the link and we can all find out.

In the meantime, I've got some revising to do.
