So, in light of having gotten through the formidable time known as The Holidays, (I think I am telling on myself here, that I am indeed a Grinch), but I am pretty sure I have been feeling erratically lately. And I am pretty sure I just used one of my co-residents as a confessional Kleenex.

I'm not really sure how it began, but I've been reading this book "Lifeskills for Adult Children." So turns out that most Adult Children of Alcoholics have the tendency to "lie" to themselves, thus not expre...

Loneliness And the Art of Reading

Posted by maria nazod on Tuesday, December 21, 2010,
I realize as I veer closer to my time back in Ptown, that I have felt an acute something: loneliness. I realized, being in a room for the last three months, excepting visits back to the Cape, then Georgia, I have pretty much been here, all alone. I'm pretty solitary by nature; I generally like being by myself, and electing when to be social, in which case, I can appear to be the most social human ever. Rest assured, I am not. 

In the meantime, however, amid all the submitting to literary journ...

Slouch-Surfing The Wave of Rejections

Posted by maria nazod on Monday, December 20, 2010,

So, this week my site grossed a total of 80 visits. I want to thank you folks for checking me out. You are inspiring me to blog more, to keep up with adding content, and so forth. In the recent weeks, I have begun to submit my poems to magazines aggressively once again. Upon submitting to journals, fellowships, and contests, there is a preternatural pattern that occurs--probably the ONLY discernible consistency in publishing--it is called rejection. 

 

Anywhere from a few weeks to a month upon ...

Iamb What Iamb: Reflections From Santa Fe

Posted by maria nazod on Sunday, December 19, 2010,
Greetings All,

I realize that I've not posted a blog in some months, now. However, upon examining the site traffic on MariaNazos.com, I was pleased (and a bit puzzled) to see that my site visits have doubled, almost tripled in the last few months. I'm trying to figure out why this is, but after trying to examine the reason, I realized, ultimately, I will never know.
