About the author:
Kevin J. O'Conner is starting to come to terms with his status as a poet. However, this time, he is trying something different. 'Dear Monday...' is Kevin's first book that has nothing to do with poetry. It is the first part of an ongoing project of love notes to the days of the week. You can follow the continuing saga on his blog, https://ordinaryaveragethoughts.wordpress.com.
As for poetry, The Imperfect Document, Kevin's third collection of poems, was published in March 2015. His two previous collections, Separation Anxiety and Journalism, were published in 2014.
When not writing poetry, Kevin can be found editing documents from far-flung places, attending open-mic readings, and making large quantities of soup. He lives near Seattle with his two feline companions (a/k/a the domesticats), Lucy and Trixie-who bear the names of 1950s sitcom characters only by coincidence.
Love Notes to the Days of the Week
Kevin J. O'Conner
'Dear Monday…' is Kevin J. O'Conner's first book that has nothing to do with poetry.
What started out as a Facebook post on a frustrating Monday quickly turned into something of an experiment, in the form of an ongoing series of love notes to the days of the week, posted as blog entries.
The notes themselves, each no more than about three sentences long, range from humorous observations about the day to existential queries, with various stops in between. They are purposely vague, as you might expect from love notes; this vague quality encourages readers to wonder what might be going on from day to day, and to draw their own conclusions.
'Dear Monday…' collects the first 365 entries in this series in book form.
