Three quick updates from my desk.
1. I’m “up” again this week in my kidlit critique group. I was unable to send the group an actual manuscript by deadline, but since I’d been encouraged to share even snippets/background about a potential new project, I was able to send out something. We’ll see what everyone has to say when we convene this weekend.
2. ICYMI: The latest (February) issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0 has gone out to subscribers. (If you’re a subscriber and you haven’t seen it yet, please check the “promotions” or “junk” folders in your email.) You can also read this issue—which marks the beginning of the newsletters 18th year of publication!—right here.
3. Guess what began yesterday?
The spring-semester class that I’m teaching!
Here’s a photo of me moments before our first Zoom meeting began. (Yes, I bought a bright new sweater for the occasion.)
I think that this first class went well.
