Mid-Week Notes

Three quick things:

  1. I am saddened and horrified by the circumstances and outcome of yesterday’s Jersey City shooting. I grew up in the same county.
  2. On a more positive note, I have now read two paragraphs of a Sholom Aleichem story, “Hanukkah Gelt,” in Yiddish. I am elated!
  3. I have planned a return to creative writing over my winter break: revising a novella and continuing to write the rough draft of a contemporary YA novel in verse. Do any of you have writing plans over the holidays?

Have a great week, everyone!

  1. The shooting was horrific. Congratulations on reading in Yiddish! That’s a great accomplishment. I’m planning family time over the holidays, but will get back to writing in January with a vengeance. Happy holidays to you, Barbara.
