Yep, it’s true, I’ve been away from this here blog for quite a long time. No, I haven’t quite forgotten about it, but life has been extra busy and demanding of my attention lately.
Now I’ve moved, settled in to my new place, if only temporarily (isn’t everything?!) and I’m ready to focus on this next chapter of my life. Here’s some of what’s cooking:
I’m in the midst of applying to Writer Residency programs across the country – they are extraordinary programs where I can live and spend all my time writing, writing, writing. It’s what I want to do right now, along with so many other things, like traveling and singing and getting my website up and running so I can spread the word about workshops and counseling I want to be doing. There aren’t enough hours in the day to do all that I want to do, which also includes plenty of just ‘being’ and not ‘doing’ anything!
Here comes the point of my blog post today. The residency applications are quite extensive and I need to submit about 20 pages of samples of my writing. I imagine I’ll take some posts from here and some from recent workshops I’ve attended with Ann Randolph.
I’m asking you to weigh in and give me your input on what you think some of my “best” writing has been here. No need to spend a lot of time on this; but if you think of a post that you particularly liked or one in which you thought the writing was particularly outstanding, I’d love to hear about that! I’ll be going through pages and pages of my writing to pick out what I think is the best, but I know that feedback from others can be so valuable in this process. If you are so inclined to give me some, I’d be very appreciative for it!
Once my applications are complete and I’ve got my website up and running, I’ll be back here posting, I swear I will! Stay tuned and thanks for reading.
With a grateful heart …
