Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

In brief:

1) Last week brought the final day of my work for Fig Tree Books. Happily, a new freelance assignment came in the same day. (And I didn’t even have to pitch to be offered it!) So that was encouraging, and I hope that it’s a harbinger of more to come. Not that I’m expecting assignments to continue rolling into my inbox un-pitched. I’ve been spending a lot of time developing and sending pitches, and I’ll continue to do so.

2) Meantime, I’m waiting for a decision to arrive re: a fall residency I’ve applied for. Please keep your fingers crossed for me!

3) And I’m working, working, working on getting my full-length poetry manuscript ready for its summer debut at a conference workshop. I need to send in the ms (I’m allowed 50 pages) by month’s end. Let’s just say that this is very challenging work. (Advice appreciated!)
