Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer
Working While on Vacation
So, yes, I stole a few days last week for a vacation.
And in case you’re wondering, it is very pleasant to have a (big) glass of champagne at the ready as you reread a book that you’ll soon be teaching.
(But even without the champagne, I’d have loved Julie Orringer’s The Invisible Bridge anew. Can’t wait to discuss it with my group tomorrow!)
An Elusive Acceptance!
Also while I was away–a slew of rejections arrived.
But there was also one acceptance! Yay!
More to be revealed about that soon, in my next update for the Poetry Has Value project after this month ends.
Absent from #AWP16
Unlike thousands of other practicing writers, I am not California-bound today. I am not heading to #AWP16, the 2016 conference of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs. But I’ll be lurking virtually via hashtag.
And, of course, I’ll be sending out the April issue of The Practicing Writer right on schedule. So, there is that for all of the other homebodies to look forward to!
