“Maybe You Don’t Need to Write Every Day.” Annie Scholl’s Brevity blog post comforts and validates me.
With our year’s worth of posts now finished a few more of my fellow bloggers have added their concluding thoughts over on the Poetry Has Value site.
“Explaining to Your Friends and Family What You Do”: a post by Aaron Gilbreath over on the Kenyon Review blog.
“Cultural critique is in a tricky spot.

And over on my other blog (My Machberet), you’ll find a fresh set of Jewish literary links.
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
Have a great weekend.
