Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick updates.

1. Something I should be doing (but haven’t started, yet).

A diary may be too ambitious, but at the very least, I should be writing an essay, or vignettes. I have thoughts! They seem worth setting down and exploring. But as counter-intuitive as it may seem, despite all the cancellations and restrictions, I seem to be less productive than usual. (Yesterday was an improvement, and I managed to check off a bunch of things that were on my list. But the preceding days are another story.)

2. All of my remaining March events have been canceled/postponed (with the notable exception of this webinar, which, because it’s a webinar, I’ll teach from home). One April reading here in New York is still scheduled, but I won’t be surprised if it’s ultimately canceled, too.

3. Latest byline. I was cheered yesterday when I received my copy of the March-April issue of Hadassah magazine, which contains my review of Vanessa L. Ochs’s The Passover Haggadah: A Biography. I expect that the review will be available online at some point, and I’ll share the link when it is. For now, though, enjoy this sneak peek!
