Three quick updates from my desk.
1. Some years ago my mother shared a snippet of a childhood memory with me that my brain filed away for possible development into a children’s story (it involves the appearance of a Famous Person at her decidedly un-splashy apartment building). This past weekend, I called one of my mother’s childhood neighbors/friends to see if he could round out any of the details. He was able to give me enough to keep me going with the idea, which, if I manage to do anything with it, could be a fictional picture-book story. Stay tuned!
2. A follow-up from last week: I am now a member of the Author’s Guild!
3. And, right on time, I posted the August newsletter for poets, fictionists, and writers of creative nonfiction over the weekend.
