The New Website Is Nearly Ready!

The New Website Is Nearly Ready!

Hi Everyone!  It’s been a busy couple of weeks.  I’ve been tutoring almost every day, and I heard from an agent who suggested an intriguing change for my novel… so another revision might be on the horizon.  Plus next week I’m teaching a class on Landing a Literary Agent at the Bethesda Writer’s Center.  (There’s still spots if you’re interested and in the area!)

Plus I’ve been busy with the baby.  We started experimenting with solids (with mixed results), and recently my husband and I took baby to the mountains for a four-day weekend of hiking. (She can handle about 5 miles in the carrier before she starts complaining.)


And somehow I’ve still been finding time to work on my new website (and stress out about it).  Over the weekend I had a crisis about what colors to choose.

I’m not a visual person.  Or a tech person.  Or a business person.  Sometimes I wonder why the heck I ever decided to give my blog a professional makeover.

But I’m feeling pretty good about it right now.  I’ve also realized that it’s never going to be perfect, and with that knowledge I may be ready to share it with you guys in the next week or two.

We’ll see.

I’ve still got a lot to do.  And a lot to learn.  Stay tuned.


The New Website Is Coming!

The New Website Is Coming!

Hi Friends! It was my birthday on Monday.  I spent it at a brewery with lots of friends and not one, not two, but FIVE babies!  (As well as a few kids and a dog.)  This is certainly a new era in my life!  But luckily an era that still involves day drinking.

My daughter was not sure how to feel about a pint of porter.


I spent the fourth of July at my local Panera, working on my new website.

That’s right, it’s more than a blog now.  I’m creating a website.  And I’m pretty excited about it.

It’s been difficult at times.  I’m not a tech person.  Or a visual person. Or a business person.  Sometimes I wonder why exactly I decided to do this.

But then I wrote some fun new content, and I got a really cool idea that involves…wait for it… VIDEO!

I’m very excited to share with you guys what I’ve been working on.

But it’s not ready yet.  And probably won’t be for at least a month.  I’m slow with technology.

I’ll check in again, but for now I better get back to work on my new WEBSITE!


My birthday present from my husband was… YOGA WITH GOATS!
