So, I dipped out on you for a little while. And, as anyone who blogs can tell you, when you miss a couple of weeks, it becomes easier and easier to miss more and more weeks. I had a good run over the summer, but when the new semester settled in, I got busier than I thought I would. I also made a vow to finish rewrites on my novel before the end of November, and I made that deadline!
There are some blogs swirling around in my head, so you’ll be hearing from me more often very soon, I hope. As you know, I’m a college English instructor, and our finals are next week. So it may be after that. But we can all start spending some time together again very soon.
If you are a blogger/ writer, and you ever have walked away from it for a while, here is a tip for getting back into the swing of things. Good news always helps–especially if that good news is writing-related. I’ve already told you I finished working on the rewrites for my novel. That’s one thing. But I really popped on to share this:
Tethered by Letters has picked up one of my poems and they are publishing it this month in their quarterly journal. The cover is super cool. It may be the coolest cover to ever have any of my words behind it (shhhh…don’t tell). Check out the announcement below, and then head over to their website for a look around–and maybe a purchase (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).
I hope you have all been well, and that autumn was good to you. I have really missed writing here. I promise I’ll be back again soon.
