I am proud to announce that I once again participated in the poetry marathon this year. As I stated last year the marathon lasts for 24 hours- 24 hours of posting poetry, but there is the option to do the half marathon which is the 12 hours. This is the option I chose last year, and decided to choose once again this year. Twelve poems in twelve hours. It still wasn't easy. It took some hard work, but I'm proud and grateful at completing it. I'm more grateful for the opportunity to do it again. Better yet I may have a chance to get two of my poems in a poetry anthology they are putting out this year. There is no guarantee that all poems will be accepted, but I am excited at the chance and possibility of getting two poems published there. This has been a wonderful experience.

Podcast Interviews.

Hello readers. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to post, but if I'm honest it's been a struggle in learning what a writer should post about in her blog.

This column I posted on Steemit is based on my hope to get back on podcast interviews. First of all I need to get to finding them again, even as I need to begin with the local media here in New York city. Being an author since 2011 I was very nervous during the interviews I did manage to land. I thought I sounded nervous as well which is what I discuss in this column.

I think it's fair to say that anyone can get nervous before doing any interview even on podcast so it's not unusual to admit being nervous. And these interviews were about five years ago. But if I'm to promote my series of books I need to get back into fully promoting them and that will include planning interviews again at some point. Well at least I can hop…
