Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick updates from my desk.

  1. Remember that review assignment I mentioned a few weeks back? This past week I managed to draft it, after which my commissioning editor and I worked on some revisions. Now we both wait for the EiC to weigh in. Stay tuned!
  2. Three of my poems were re-upped in recent days on the 929 website as part of the site’s focus on the book of Ruth. They’re all included in Birthright, but you can find them on 929 as follows: “The Awakening,” “The First Night,” and “Ruth’s Regret.”
  3. The intensive flash-fiction workshop that I’ve been part of for the past several weeks held its last meeting last night. Over the course of the month-long workshop I was “up” twice, submitting two short pieces for feedback each time. Of the three pieces I’m leaving with (one is something I submitted, revised, and submitted again), I’m happy enough with one of them to have begun sending it out. I’d love to have good news to share with you about that soon…stay tuned.

    “Ruth’s Regret” is very powerful. Speaks to all women today in silent metaphor!
    The final third of “The First Night”: very powerful.
    Thank you!
