Meta Blogging: Pushcart Prize Ranking

Today, Brevity's Nonfiction Blog has a guest post by yours truly that Dinty Moore calls Which Magazines Earn the Most Pushcart Prizes in Nonfiction? The post is a brief discussion of the latest wrinkle in my rankings of literary magazines based on the number of Pushcart Prizes and Special Mentions earned each year over a ten year period. The list began several years ago as a ranking for fiction. Brevity got interested when I recently created a new list for nonfiction. Anyway, you can go there, read all about it, and follow the links back here . . .

"Like a dog that returns to his vomit is a fool that repeats his folly. Proverbs 26:11"

I like your site...
I put it my blogger on Tweet
But I never like the above proverb...
There are endless proverbs,
Which make you feel happy
When you read
Rather than to read word vomit...

I'm a pediatrician...
almost everyday children vomits in my clinic...
When I read the proverb above...
I can smell the acidity of vomit..
I got use to it ...
But still... "vomit is vomit"
Can you avoid it...?

You can't avoid when the sick child vomits
You feel you want to treat...
But you can avoid as a proverb
I can smell it even through it...

Excuse me to say please change
Let us smell roses
From your proverbs
And not to smell word vomit...
Which could induce vomiting...
Like me...I am sure
Many others might feel...
