Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer
Three quick things.
1. THANK YOU
Seriously. I did NOT expect the absolutely immense outpouring of congratulations that followed last week’s announcement. THANK YOU ALL.
Before I sink into the all-but-certain mire of whatever is today's news, I want to share something HAPPY: an announcement about my first poetry collection, BIRTHRIGHT, which will be published in the fall. https://t.co/ICR5d6CoUh pic.twitter.com/zYNznBnKmV

2. My To-Do List
You’d think that I’d be focusing above all else on editing/preparing the manuscript for production this summer. But, no! I’m frankly busier with other things, such as arranging for a new headshot (photo shoot: booked!) and using this occasion to refresh/re-design my website (answers to my designer’s questionnaire: in progress!). But don’t worry: I know what’s most important, and I won’t neglect what’s at the heart of this endeavor: THE MANUSCRIPT.
3. In the Meantime
In the meantime, I’m delighted to report that one of the heretofore unpublished poems in the collection has found a home. It’s an especially timely poem for the upcoming Passover holiday, and it is scheduled to be published late next week. I’ll keep you all posted!
