1. Volume Matters

Each morning, my husband and I stumble bleary-eyed toward our espresso machine. His drink is a single shot, the shorter and blacker the better. My drink is an Americano, the taller and milkier the… Continue reading

2. Pump Up the Volume!

I recently had a dream about teaching writing. In my dream the kids wrote and wrote and wrote for hours on end as I floated effortlessly from student to student. You could hear… Read More

3. GOATS EAT CANS IS COMING!

With the Forts series wrapped up, I've moved onto something else, and believe it or not that something else is getting released in March!


Goats Eat Cans is coming soon!

What the heck is Goats Eat Cans and why should you care about it?Trust me when I tell you that you're going to like this thing.

If you hated Forts and you hate me for writing Forts, you're still going to like this.

Goats Eat Cans isn't Forts. It's nothing like Forts.Nothing at all.

4. HITTING THE ROAD WITH GOATS EAT CANS!



As the above graphic states so wonderfully, for the next couple months I'm hitting the road with my new book, Goats Eat Cans Volume 1, in a desperate attempt to sell some books! 

That's right, it's carnival barker time, bitch. 

NOTE I shouldn't type the word "bitch". I'm way to lame to pull it off. END NOTE 

The tour is being spread into two sections - the first of which is being sponsored by The Virtual Book Tour Cafe and the second of which is being sponsored by my pals at The Literary Underground (basically a bunch of people I now owe favors). 

Along the way I'll be doing guest posts, and giving away stuff, and working my ass off to convince you that $1.99 isn't too much to spend for three hundred pages of fart jokes and references to Kim Kardashian's posterior. Sometimes those things are one in the same. 

The dates and links are listed below.

5. Area, Perimeter, Volume -- a math poem



AREA, PERIMETER, VOLUME

Gardens and fences
and new tile floors,
towers of blocks
and a bulletin border.

Perimeter says "RIM"
and area is flat,
volume takes space...
I know all of that,

but keeping them straight
in my head is a problem:
square? cubic? units?
perimeter? area? volume?

Some day I'll grow up
and need carpet and tile,
frame art and fill boxes...
THEN this will be worthwhile!

© Mary Lee Hahn, 2012




Poem #25, National Poetry Month, 2012


Area and perimeter are SO hard for fourth graders to keep straight!




Cathy, at Merely Day By Day, is joining me in a poem a day this month. Other daily poem writers include Amy at The Poem Farm, Linda at TeacherDance, Donna at Mainely Write, Laura at Writing the World for Kids (daily haiku), Liz at Liz in Ink (daily haiku), Sara at Read Write Believe (daily haiku), Jone at Deo Writer (daily haiku)...and YOU?

6. GOATS EAT CANS IS FREE!


In honor of the long awaited release of Goats Eat Cans Volume 2, Goats Eat Cans Volume 1 is completely and totally free as a Kindle download for three days!

Three days!

Three measly days!

For three days this thing won't cost you anything more than the time of your life that you'll eventually waste reading it!

For three days you can take money from my pocket and food from my table!

For three days you can rip me off and feel good about it because I'm asking you to do it!

Hell, I'm begging you to do it! I'm on my hands in knees in a leather outfit that leaves little to the imagination with my pasty white cheeks in the air, and I'm just begging to be spanked. Hit me damn it! Hit me and watch my ass ripple like the midsection of the world's most unattractive belly dancer!

CLICK HERE and punish me like the sad excuse for a man that I am! You know you want to.

Oh, and when you're done with that, maybe you could CLICK HERE and plunk down a couple bucks for Volume 2 to thank me.

Crazy ass-obsessed cheapskates.

7. Spiritual Midget--thanks Julia!


I love Julia Cameron's writing. Back a few years ago, I was lucky enough to hear her talk in person in Sedona, and she is quite funny as well as, comforting to my artistic soul. She has a great term "spiritual midget" that I am relating to right now. I know I preach we should create for ourselves and our own joy, but does it make me a spiritual midget if I really thrive on the compliments I receive for my work? Let's face it, if you create a piece of art you are so jived about, and you post it to your blog, don't you feel a little crushed if no one else is jived too? (Or put a pieces in a gallery where they use one of your paintings to hold over a light fixture...yes, that was happening). And when they are jived, it's like icing on the cake, isn't it? I mean the good, vanilla sugary kind? This week I had several artists who I admire tell ME they like my work. That was very vanilla sugary. May even have made up for the light fixture fiasco. It's very validating and maybe, secretly, we DO need some of that, spiritual midgets or not.
