Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick things.

1. Between the arrival of the Jewish High Holy Days and the anniversary of 9/11, I’ve been feeling rather contemplative during much this past week. And I’ve been remembering some past writings—some of my own, and some by others. Here’s a short piece that’s among the former: “The Twin Towers: A Personal History in Four Parts.”

2. But I’m also looking ahead. I spent some more time over the weekend revising my poetry collection and preparing it for some fall submissions/contests. Here’s hoping….

3. And if you’re at all interested in what I’ve been reading lately, you’ll find in my reading log some brief notes on the two novels I read over the past week. See entries #44 and #45. (Atypical pacing, believe me. And the second novel was quite short.)

So that’s a bit of what’s been going on here. How about with you?

  1. Rosh Hashanah just ended, but even though I’m Catholic I find significance in the Jewish New Year. Students are back in school, and as a writer a new phase in publishing begins.

    This summer has been one of learning and preparation for me & I’m seeing the fruits of the webinars & my labor beginning to surface.

    Everyday Joy, which includes my essay “Finding Joy,” launches the week of Sept.24th on Kindle, Covey Club accepted another essay of mine to publish soon, and I’m in final edit on my book, 17th Century Tottenville History Comes Alive scheduled to be on Kindle this fall.

    I redesigned my webpage, Book Reviews blog, and Tottenville History blog as my email list grows in anticipation of even more upcoming news.

    I, too, am looking ahead after the anniversary of 9/11.
