With the coming of the new year, a few new things have come to Babbling of the Irrational, many of them exciting. This month alone brings us a new featured contributor, who I have the honor of introducing to you all, as well as a change to our posting schedule. Let us get through with the official things before we go on to the introductions. Your editors, Michelle Drozdick and myself, will only be publishing one Message from the Editors in the new year, alternating between the two of us each month.
You’ve read her work on Babbling of the Irrational in poetry thus far, in “Chocolate Secrets”, “Deprivation”, and this week’s “Fantabulous”, Kylie Goetz is our newest featured contributor. Her first two pieces spoke of regrets, of love had and not, of what could have been, and personally, made my heart pang in compassion. In comparison, “Fantabulous”, as you have hopefully read before reading this, while still invocative, is more poetic than her raw early works, and later this month, Kylie will be making her prose debut in “The Beginning and the End”. We thoroughly enjoy her work and can’t wait to see what she sends us next.
I think I can speak for Michelle and I when I say that we are amazed that our site has been so popular these last eight months, and are happy that so many of you have taken such an interest in us. We can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for us and you, our faithful readers. Until then, happy reading.
