Hey y'all! Boy have I missed you and keeping up with what's going on in your lives, with your writing, your holidays, this crazy cold weather we're having, and all manner of things.
With the help of the shovel over there, I *think* I've just about dug myself out of life's avalanche which has had me buried for the last weeks of my unexpected absence from the Blogosphere and Twitterville. Whew! Won't go into details (everybody's got their own set of problems), but I do want to say THANKS SO MUCH for your emails checking in to see if I'm okay and sending well wishes. I always knew y'all were the real deal, and I really appreciate your friendship and kindness.
We've been working hard to get our winter issue of Rose & Thorn Journal out this Friday, so I hope you'll sign up for the quarterly newsletter (which is tres beautiful) so you'll get a reminder when new issues come out. Lotsa beautiful poetry, art and prose to warm you up this frigid winter season...so go sign up, ya hear? It's super quick & easy. :)
The new R&T blog features writerly stuff on Wednesdays, so add that to your hump-day To-Do list! Today there's a really interesting interview you writing people might enjoy. Here's a blurb: "Brian Wilkins is the editor of Scarab, a literary magazine for the iPhone." How cool is that concept? And there's also an interview with Kristina Darling that went up last week which gives readers a peek into the processes and thoughts of a poetry & prose writer.
I'm going to be on a shortened posting schedule for the time being, which will give me time to visit your blogs. I'll put up weekly recipes (good, cheap, easy), writerly nuggets of all kinds, and fun foibles & jokes as I find 'em.
