(Yes, I meant it both ways.)
Subscribers to my email list (signup in the sidebar to your right) got a lineup of my late spring and summer classes, and a reflection on how summer influences creative life differently from other seasons. If you missed the email, you can still find an updated list of upcoming classes and events on the Events page.
I've also added a page called Class Resources, which you may have noticed in the top navigation. This is primarily for my students, and collects links and recommended reading from each of my classes. However, non-students might still find it entertaining and enlightening if they're interested in learning more about writing, publishing, marketing, or any of the above.
Coming soon, I'll be posting a new short story! My Pinterest followers are aware I've been ramping up my plans to sew more clothes soon. I just ordered a mini sewing machine, which is about all I have space for in our cramped but adorable apartment. I feel like I've been in a frenzy of creative activity of all kinds lately -- sewing more, cooking new meals, transitioning into my summer wardrobe, gardening on the patio. But I recognize that sometimes all these wonderful, happy little bursts of creativity mask a deeper fear of working on my writing -- something that other people will judge and scrutinize. I don't much care what you think of my homemade skirt (unless you like it!) or my patio garden, because they're not my livelihood or the expression of my deepest imaginings. All those other expressions aren't a waste of time at all -- they're a precious and important part of living -- but last night I exerted a bit of discipline and set the sewing patterns aside to finish "Goners," a short story about time, brotherhood, and creepy women who emerge from the sea. I hope you like it.
