Wow! April is almost over and it's been like a ghost town over here in Happy Writing land. Never fear, I am alive and well, if in a bit of a dry spell. April has been a bit of an emotional month for me. As you may recall, if you have been coming around here for awhile, I lost my brother back in August. He was young and his death was unexpected. For various reasons, our family decided not to hold a memorial service for him at that time. Instead, we planned a celebration of his life a few weeks ago following his birthday and preceding Easter. It was a bittersweet time and leading up to it and since, I've spent a lot of time in reflection on my own life and have been trying to make healthier decisions and live a life I can be proud of. However, all this reflection time has made me neglect my website. I am working my way up to posting here regularly again and I have a whole slew of posts that I am itching to write when I have time. So many exciting writerly things have been happening!
In the meantime, however, I would like to share that an extremely short piece of mine is up in the newest edition of Scissors and Spackle
. This is a very experimental piece for me and I am thrilled that it found such a loving home.
