In the absence of a perfect blog title or a fully formed idea of where I'm going with this whole blog idea, I am just leaping in. Timidity doesn't seem to be particularly productive, after all. I've cast off the earlier heading "News and Events" in favor of the imperfect blog bit. And so, at least for now, I plan to share the occasional reflection, rant, celebration, disappointment, confusion--you know--the the stuff of life. I suspect I'll veer toward what's going on in my writing life, but since that seems to be connected to everything else, there may be more of the personal than I'm accustomed to making public. And if you're inclined to respond in any way, please do feel free to comment. It doesn't have to be perfect, either!
