Today I ended one of my last writing workshops until the winter. I am adjusting to what may be ahead for fall and work. In the meantime, I am gearing up to launch another round of things in the shop, and working on a few fun projects. I am starting a new book, and feel myself returning to another. And right now, I am sipping a glass of wine in celebration of Black Is King, which makes this Friday an exciting one.
I’m excited about a weekend of writing, fun, and plenty of dancing.

P.S Are you signed up for the newsletter? In short, it’s a love letter from me to you, in the form of an essay. It’s always free, but you can give $5 a month as a “Care As Community” member, to help sustain the work during this time.
