Three quick things this week:
- I’ve signed on to take Intermediate Yiddish at YIVO with instructor Nina Warnke. Can’t wait to delve in again and also continue with my translations. Class starts mid-September. Nina thought I should take the advanced class, but I don’t think I’m there yet.
- A new picture book biography critique group starts this weekend. I want to unlock those craft secrets of writing a powerful (and saleable) manuscript!
- I’ve been thinking this week of a comment once made to me by another writer at a retreat: “Don’t you think you’d have more success if you didn’t write ‘Jewish’?” It still riles me.
Continue to be safe, wherever you are.
