Now it's really really forthcoming


Several days of relaxation and etc ruin me, a little. Yesterday while I was hooping on the beach I had a crowd of about 20 people watching me. Someone asked for my card, and if I could be booked at parties. I don't have hooping cards, and I have no idea how much I'd charge for hooping at an event, or how I'd even draw up a contract. There would have to be all sorts of specific clauses detailing that no one could touch me, that I'd have to have a certain amount of space to perform, and that I wouldn't hoop on weird raised platforms, and that were I to accidentally doc someone with my hoop, I wouldn't be liable for any injuries.

But I have other things on my mind--like my book (Terminal Humming, Edge Books), which was sent to the printer yesterday. Proofs by the end of the week, actual book in my hand, and hopefully yours, very soon.

That's great Lorraine, congrats on the new book.

But no link here at your blog to Phylum, who published your 1st chapbook? Man, that is cold...

@ Stan--thanks!
@ Richard--Hi, and thanks! My links list is due an update, for sure ; )

Fantastic Lorraine! Can't wait.
PS Hooping as a side job for a poet? Maybe a good gig!

@ Ms. Supervillaniness--thanks! Hooping as a side job for poet (which is a side job for, er...)

@ Matt--yes, that should certainly be included in the contract!

Can't wait for the book to be in hand!

As for hooping . . . I'd pay for lessons - my daughter says I'm a "Boring Hooper."
