The Opposite of Cabbage arrived today, six copies through the post, and it looks and feels really good. So far, I haven’t found any typos although I’m sure I will have missed something. It’s still hard to believe that the book actually exists as a physical object, but the evidence is currently piled on my office floor. Whenever I turn round, I keep thinking it will have disappeared.
Oh, I've just heard... Apparently, you can buy it now (ignore the publication date of 1st March) from Salt here - http://www.saltpublishing.com/books/smp/9781844715138.htm. Don't all stampede at once!
I am writing a horrendously complex funding application – to do with work, not poetry. It has killed off my poetic imagination, but (I hope) not for good. I must now get back to it. Procrastination is tempting, very tempting, but finishing the form – besides being vital for a community project – is now important for my sanity.
