Good Things

Elizabeth Chadwick agreed to let me interview her, and the bronchitis sidetracked me for too long, but I hope to take time in the next several days to GET ON that so I can bring you something exciting.

Day Al-Mohamed asked me on Twitter tonight to write for Unleaded.  That would be pretty exciting - their platform is such a nice variety and view, with very engaging writers contributing.  I'd love to be a part of that, even if just for one shot.

And, of course, there is this.  I'm still an awful interview.  But maybe I can learn.

This is the sort of thing I'm supposed to do, as I refine and perfect the work itself.  It's gratifying and encouraging, and it's bouying me through a period of doubt and difficulty, as I edit again when I didn't expect to get back into that and am still working alone.  Feeling like I'm proceeding without a net these days, I'm very grateful for these things.  I have a lot to be thankful for - now to do it all some justice.

Editing is going quickly - if I had readers, I'd know better how *well* I was doing.  But I'm doing what I can to put into the world what it has been giving me.  I hope it's good stuff I am giving back ...

Absolutely, we'd love to have you. Actually, I was digging around trying to find an email to send you our guidelines. :)

As to content, we're pretty open-ended. We'd rather people spoke about what they felt they had to give. Hence the wild variety (which I love).

ALTHOUGH, if I had an opportunity to ask for something... :) Since you JUST did an interview and you feel a little conflicted about it, I think it would be super helpful to have one from you about what people can do to better prepare for them and things to do to communicate in a way that works for the audience and for you (authors do have a REASON for interviews). :)

But anything you want is fine. And if you need two slots, we can do that too.
