Three quick things:
1. Poetry manuscript update: Well, the first rejection has come in. BUT, it was a positive and encouraging one. So, there’s that.
2. I’ve written and submitted my latest “A View from the USA” essay for the UK’s Jewish Chronicle. It should be available by week’s end. I will share!
3. Barring a snowpocalypse, I am off to jury duty today. Which has brought back fond memories of a short-story I wrote a long time ago that is framed by jury duty. The story, written more than 15 years ago, was never accepted for publication—I like to say that it lived up to its title, “The Unchosen”—but I still have warm feelings for it. As I discovered when I reread it yesterday.
What’s new with you?
