Mid-Week Notes

Three quick things:

  1. Some writer pals and I agreed today to meet up every August to write together at a retreat starting in 2020. Does anyone else do something like this?
  2. I’ll be taking a beginning Yiddish class this fall at Gratz College. It’s online using Zoom. It starts Wednesday–we’ve already got homework!
  3. Almost through my agent slush pile. Just a few more to go!

That’s it for this week.

  1. For 1/
    Our practice is 2X a year & it’s been a luxury of time – an overnight – from the generous writer in our group of four, whose owned a 2nd weekend home for many years. Next time is Oct. 23rd. We bring her all the prepared food or items to toss together & clean up. We begin by collecting at a table to state our weekend goals & ideas. We manage to be quite silent among each other, tapping away (or scrawling/scribbling.) We always bring swap items – interesting magazines, books no longer wanted, pencils collected on trips. And gifts for the hostess. We read (or not) from fresh pages at the End. It’s a deep way to connect & to accomplish.
    Good luck with your Slush & Agent Days.
    If I get a nibble on my verse novel, I may have an Agent Query for You. I know you are a sharp & savvy advocate for those you take on.

  2. That’s lovely that your practice has been enduring. Thanks for sharing and thanks for your kind words about advocacy. I do have a fondness for verse.
