Book Reviews, Giveaways & More: What's Coming Up on My Blog for Sept/Oct

Thank you for letting me indulge in my out-of-touch summer where blogs and poetry and writing were just oddly-shaped I barely remembered passing by.

Now it's September and my writing life begins again.


Here's some previews of what I'll be having on my blog in the coming two months:

An interview with the incredible writer, Brenda Miller, who just co-authored, The Pen & The Bell: Mindful Writing in a Busy World, with writer and poet, Holly Hughes.

Book Reviews! Including:  

Michael Collier's An Individual History (poems)

Christopher Johnson's Microstyle: The Art of Writing Little

Janna Malamud Smith's An Absorbing Errand: How Artists and Craftsmen Make Their Way to Mastery 
(I just received this and am very excited to read it, but will probably post the review in October)


A link for Northwest folks to win 2 free tickets to Dean Young's first reading since having a heart transplant.

A giveaway from the coolest store:  The Shabby Apple.  A fantastic store for cool clothing for creative individuals.

And we'll look at an amazing item from a women-run business,  {R}evolution Apparel -- The Versalette!

I recently purchased their main item that was a Kickstarter project, The Versalette, a garment you can wear as a scarf, shirt, skirt, poncho, use as a purse, and about 12 more other uses.  There will also be a hilarious story of my first attempt to use one and how now it's become an item I love.

So that's what's coming up for you this fall, along with Confession Tuesday and maybe a Thankful Thursday or two.

Thank you all for reading and checking in here.  I so appreciate knowing I'm not just writing this all to myself.



  1. Yours was the first blog I checked in with this morning, the first day back in my writing shed after a summer of delicious slacking off.

    Feel free to post a current pic or two of your writing space. I can never seem to get enough of the writing spaces of others :)

  2. Glad your blog will be active again. It' always been one of my favorite resources.
    I was worried that it might get twittered away.
