Three quick updates from my desk.
1. In case you were wondering: The critique session that I mentioned last week did happen on Sunday, and IT WENT WELL. There’s a lot of work to do on my picture-book ms. (A lot.) But everyone was so constructive with their feedback, and the idea behind my project received so much validation. I’m extremely encouraged to continue.
2. I also mentioned last week that I’d received an essay assignment. I’ve been working on that project, and will continue to do so to meet my deadline (next Monday).
3. And as I also mentioned last week: I spent a lot of time this past week re-acquainting myself with Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited ahead of a book-club discussion that took place last night. Especially if you’re also a fan of the novel, I recommend this podcast episode, recorded last spring for the 75th anniversary of the book’s publication. I loved listening to it!
