  It's here it's here!
Working Writer's Day Planner
My contributor's copy arrived today! The Small Beer Press Working Writer's Day Planner is an awesome resource for writers, including information about grants, submission deadlines, markets, writing prompts, and interviews. That's my photo "Bug Season" in the middle left of the cover pictured above; this photo, and two others of mine, are included inside the planner.

My first photographic work in print! I'm proud that any work of mine has been published by Small Beer Press; that's the dream, kids, that's the dream. At the moment I don't have any writing that's worthy of submitting to them; maybe someday. In the meantime, this.

A modern-ish day friendship bracelet - a wrist cuff made for me by my super-talented friend over at Yarnberd . It's made of an old sweater, and old buttons. Thanks, M!

It is as the Talking Heads say it is. In the meantime, until I find that city, enjoy a view of Charleston from down by the river (where I do not live in a van).
