So I bet you thought I was dead, or had been taken by sweaty cowboys for ransom, or maybe ran off with a dirty, tattooed musician….
I’m happy, safe, and well. I’m sure you all were just worried sick.
The good news is I’m writing! Or editing. Or both, rather. Working on that novel like a MOFO. I needs to get ‘er done, you know what I’m saying? And now I have to, because I’m trying to enter a YA manuscript contenst by Oct. 1st. *nervous laughter*
I can do this, right??? RIGHT?
I’ve also done a little writing over on the Sisterwives blog. I’ve been introspective this week, specifically about the complexities of womanhood (which you can read here), the relationships between women, and the importance of forgiveness.
I also read a book. A GREAT one. You need to read it too. It validated everything I’ve ever felt after a friendship ended: the soul-sucking hurricane of loss, self-doubt, and confusion.
I not only told my own breakup story HERE, but also talked more about the book, which I HIGHLY recommend. It’s brutiful, and brave, and heartfelt. This collection of essays was masterfully woven together by the genius women behind The Herstories Project.

That is all. Now go buy the book and read the linked posts so I can get back to my manuscript.
