Within the next 24 hours, I will send in my medical review for full entry into the Peace Corps. It’s been a long journey already–simply filling out the paperwork. After tomorrow, however, it is all in the hands of the government. In the months ahead, I’ll learn where I am going and when I leave. It is going to be a 27 month endeavor. I can’t wait to get started.
I hope to finish as much as possible before I leave. I will finish this novel before the end of May. I hope to also edit all four of my novels until they are ready for publication. If I get to that point, I will let everybody know and present a link to get a severely discounted copy. I should be able to get all of them done so long as I don’t get called into early duty (which I wouldn’t mind).
While in the Peace Corps, I hope to still have electricity. If I do, I will continue to update this website with writing. If I don’t, I will only be able to update periodically when I get access to a computer. Either way, I will be writing a lot while serving. Who knows what will come of this adventure.
A poetry update today…
While substituting in an Art Class, I eavesdropped on a conversation between two third graders. The conversation was so fascinating, that I needed to write about it somehow. This is a lighthearted poem. It is also my first attempt at rhyming poetry.
Good luck. If they put you in Jordan I shall look you up. All the respect to the Peace Corps and all their volunteers.
