Well hello, Google+. Good for you for hanging in there! I wrote a new blog post, about how I'm recovering from the last few years...
I last wrote specifically about this period of time back in September. September! And I am pleased to report: progress. In the last few weeks, I've seen a lot of the things I'd hoped for in this break...

Where to find me at NCTE/ALAN, other than the poker tables.
(Also: a call for This Creative Life questions!)
At the end of this week I'm off to Vegas for the second time in a month. Can Vegas handle that? I don't know. This time around I'm there for the National Council of Teachers of English conference plus...

The wonderful Matthew Kirby helps me field your questions in This Creative Life's 2-part Listener Q&A episode. Binge on the full hour (and then some) this weekend, or save one for yourself next weekend. Either way, hope you enjoy!

In the biz, authors and publishers do their absolute best to come up with a title and a cover that both capture a story and attract new readers. Sometimes, no matter what's inside the book or how much...

I arranged a weekend with girlfriends at the Creekside Cabin. The customer service, the rate, the communication were all superb. The property was comfortable and worked well for us and a great time was had by all. We especially enjoyed the deck by the creek - we spent hours out there talking and watching hummingbirds. The huge outdoor hot tub was also wonderful. Everyone was so responsive and helpful throughout the whole process--and I was able to call Wyatt for concierge service from the bottom of Stewart Falls to double check on a shortcut trail. We really felt taken care of more than your basic vrbo situation. I will definitely work with Stewart Mountain Lodging again!

I'm self-employed, and Elite has been great. They are responsive and thorough, and easy to work with, and having them on my team has reduced my stress. I still hate paying taxes.
