Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer (and a Super-Short Break)

For those of you who may count on our post schedule, a quick heads-up: This will be the final post from Practicing Writing for a week. Expect the next post to arrive next Wednesday, May 18. This means that we’ll skip this Friday’s “Finds” post, the #SundaySentence, and next Monday’s “Markets and Jobs.” (No need to worry—everything’s fine, and I’ll be back!)

Now, for some quick updates.
