(I know I said every fortnight. Shh, it’s okay.)
·I have a new job! I’m now a consultant at The Inkwell Group, Ireland’s leading publishing consultancy, offering manuscript critiques, online workshops, and other good things. Learn more on my editorial page.
·The ever-inspiring Anne Lamott told us that “God only has one shoe” and explained why we might not feel like reliable narrators of our own lives–something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. Her trust in the creative process (and the life process, really) is something I’m always striving toward.
·There’s been a real spike in submissions to “Where I Live Now,” the ongoing series about women and home that I’m editing for The Rose & Chestnut. It’s a wonderful thing to get so many honest, vulnerable, beautifully written essays from our guest writers. The latest piece is “A Room of My Own” by Liesl Dineen. (And I’d love for you to add to the series, too!)
·These watercolor insect paintings are fairly breathtaking.
