Three quick things this week:
- I’m reading Susan Shapiro’s Byline Bible and getting ideas for short essays, maybe to replace the genealogical memoir. I’m about to send one essay out. Wish me luck!
- I’ve been writing about the death of a friend. I was about to send it out when I decided it wasn’t yet ready. I’m taking a Creative Nonfiction course starting in January on the lyric essay. Maybe it’s what this piece needs.
- More and more I’m hearing from editors that they need more time to consider manuscripts, so if you’ve got work out there in the market, please be patient.
Be safe and take care.
