Hello, Friends,

I’ll be speaking with Jorge Meister samon Monday, so stay tuned for highlights of our conversation.

And I want to recommend this brief and thoughtful post about being a writer who doesn’t know how to keep writing given the conflict storming in our nation at present. From Star in Her Eye, my friend Heather Kirn Lanier’s blog; if you’re a creator, you need to read this beautiful piece.
