A guest post that I wrote for goinswriter.com. 

Revising is improving—always improving, moving closer to the positive and true version of the story I want to be writing and living.”

There is no way I’d rather spend the last few official days of summer. It doesn’t matter that media & commercialism want to thrust us into fall and winter (we saw a snowman at Costco last week), I will cling to the #summer and the heat and the sun as long as I can. And, yes, @retrojam and I spent a Wednesday afternoon at the river. When you run your own business & make a living off of creative projects, you end up working 7 days a week most weeks. Instead of a regular weekend, we take time off when we can get it and, frankly, we wouldn’t trade it for anything. |

My kind of weekend morning. Getting up with just enough time to have a leisurely coffee before we start our day. He is off to work where he will be schmoozing and pouring #wine all day, and I am off to a #writing workshop where I will be talking creative nonfiction all day. Both of us perusing our passions. Also: we love having a new neighborhood cafe right down the street. Happy Saturday all! |

I’m so proud to announce that two essays from the October 2012 issue of @undergumtree are listed as notable essays in Best American Essays 2013. This is a huge honor for both the #writers and for my little #litmag. It’s even more exciting as my team and I work on the Oct 2014 issue, our 3-year anniversary issue. We have come a long way and I can’t wait to see what the next 3 years have for us.
