Man Stands for long time....



.....with mouth open before roast duck flies in.

A wee motivational post today, as today is the day when I have been informed of my second ever poem publication! Hip hip - hoorah. It's going to be in the next Revival Press Magazine, launching next Thursday, and they've invited me down to read it out in Limerick (kinda funny limerick would print my second ever poem to be printed - since it's also the site of my second ever reading) and everything.

The above saying comes from my desk calender for today, and it's actually true - because, you see, they didn't hack into my computer to find the poem, nor did they call over to my house on the off chance I might have something. In fact I sent it to them.
Very forward I know, but these are modern times and they call for modern means.
Anyhoo - thought I'd share the news...... although - does that mean I have to tell ye about all the rejects in future? No, I couldn't burden ye with all of those, I wouldn't have it on my conscience...

Thanks Rachel, :-)
Thanks Brian and congrats to you too!
Likewise congrats to you too EW!
Thanks Oub - I know your "Pah" translates to "I'm so delighted for you I hardly know how to express it"

Domestic Oub said...

yeah... something like that..

Peter Goulding said...

Ah well done Niamh. Can't believe its only your second published piece.

Titus said...

Congrats. [Legal notice: this congratulatory message is meant earnestly and implies no further obligation on part of published poetess to inform adoring public of future rejects]

Niamh B said...

Tks Oub *hug*
Tks Peter! It's a nice feeling.
Tks Titus, I'll be sure to ask them!
Tks TFE - we sure are great, (though they also leave out the odd poet that's too brilliant for words) will i see you at the ceremony then? will we get crowns or how does it work? like I said - new to this.
Tks Lorenzo - much appreciate the legal disclaimer there too, will apply that to all of em, if ye don't mind.

NanU said...

Delightful, Niamh! and many more trips to Limerick to come...

Totalfeckineejit said...

Yes Niamh, we get crowns, a tattoo, and a spin dryer.Fab n'est ce pas?

I can't go as it involves leaving the house.

Emerging Writer said...

YOU might have to pack your tiara just in case they forget your crown.
But what a great lineup. Truly a magazine of tate (with temporary slip up re DO, no doubt soon to be rectified)

Domestic Oub said...

Et Tu TFE??!?!?

Totalfeckineejit said...

Bless you, D'Oub.You got a cold coming on?
Swap you my Revival spot for your Jonathan Swift Award!?

Niamh B said...

Thanks NanU - surely yes, there'll be the second novel, second album, second film... just have to get the firsts outta the way.
Great TFE - hope I get to pick what Tattoo they put on?!?
Yes EW - will pack the tiara just in case.
Oub - you can depend on no one these days...

Domestic Oub said...
