Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

This week, just a few quick things:

  • It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Jessica Piazza’s Poetry Has Value project. How much of a fan am I? Well, I’m going to be blogging for the project for the rest of the year. Take a look at my introductory post–and please follow along!
  • Remember that Quiet Americans anniversary giveaway that I mentioned last week? The giveaway went live on Sunday. Here’s the link, if you want to enter.
  • And a dispatch from the day job: I enjoyed writing this post for the Fig Tree Books blog, about “rabbinic fiction.”
  • Hope that everyone’s week is going well!

In part, I’m inspired to do so by the structure and content of this terrific post from C.A. LaRue’s BoneSpark blog. For now, we’ll keep the rubric of “work-in-progress.” But don’t be surprised if these posts get a new title soon. And here’s an early effort to follow the blogging impulses now stirred.
