i am glad

I am glad.

I am glad that I was able to attend AWP 11 in Washington, D.C.

I am glad that I got to hang out with so many awesome folks, even if only for a quick hello in many cases. I will try to name them all, in no particular order:

Christy Crutchfield, xTx, Brian Allen Carr, James Tadd Adcox, Rebekah Silverman, Roxane Gay, Christopher Newgent, Ryan Bradley, Laura Ellen Scott, Erin Fitzgerald, Brooks Sterritt, Matty Byloos, Ben Loory, Scott McClanahan, Ben Tanzer, Sarah Rose Etter, Jesse Bradley, Sean Nevin, Jen Michalski, David Erlewine, Robb Todd, Adam Robinson, Blake Butler, Amelia Gray, Greg Gerke, Lauren Becker, Scott Garson, Molly Gaudry, Steve Himmer, Matt Seigel, Amber Sparks, Tim Jones-Yelvington, Matt Bell, Dan Wickett, Matthew Salesses, Christopher Heavener, Robert Swartwood, Heather Fowler, Gabe Durham, Jensen Beach, Mike Young, Nicole Scarpato Monaghan, Corey Zeller, Aaron Burch, Giancarlo DiTrapano, Anne Holmes, Lily Ladewig, Seth Landman, Gale Thompson, Noy Holland, Guy Pettit, Len Kuntz

I am glad that I did not forget anyone, but if I did, know that I was glad to meet you.

I am glad that I was able to be a part of the Divination in DC reading at 4P. Awesome. Thanks again to PANK, Mud Luscious, and Annalemma for putting it together.

I am glad that I was able to attend the BLIP/MMR/PR reading at Johns Hopkins. Also awesome.

I am glad for this piece of writerly advice I received at The Black Cat: KISS ASS. Kiss EVERYONE’S ass.

I am glad that I went.

I am glad to be home.

I am glad.
