Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer
Three quick updates from my desk.
1. Heartfelt thanks to everyone who has posted or sent me a kind message on the occasion of the 18th anniversary newsletter issue. A few of you have even let me know that you’ve chosen this moment to purchase my books, too. I’m grateful.
2. Wise words that resonate ⬇️
I appreciated these comments a lot when I saw them over the weekend. They express better than I was able to in a recent communication with my accountability partner how I feel now that a publisher on whom I’d pinned some “final” hopes for my picture-book bio manuscript has rejected it. At this point, I’m at the proverbial crossroads with the project. I’m not sure how (or if) to move forward with it. But I don’t regret all that I’ve put into it at all.
3. At long (long) last, I am the proud possessor of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.
They were installed along one wall of my office last Tuesday, and I’ve spent many hours over the past week unpacking and re-organizing my books.
Which, I suspect many of you will agree, is a pretty great way to spend a chunk of time.
