Some writerly-readerly highlights from the past week:
Met Gary Shteyngart! At a conversation between Sasha Senderovich and him that took place at Baruch College of The City University of New York.
Received Missouri Review contributor copies including my most recent review-essay.
Spent a quality weekend morning drinking coffee & talking writing with a friend.
Received another rejection for my aforementioned humor piece.
Continued to submit my aforementioned humor piece.
Received an invitation to give a talk to writers on the subject of writing contests.
Finished reading a remarkable novel.
Put some finishing touches on the November issue of The Practicing Writer.
Not a whole lot of actual writing there, alas. (I could enumerate some of my “day job” activities, including “writing a new blog post,” but I’ve opted not to go into detail re: that work.)
How about you and your week?
