Wow…what a year these weeks have been. Crazy times and such hard, dark days for our democracy. I hope you are staying safe and healthy. I feel warily optimistic (with the emphasis on the warily), but am raising a glass to brighter days ahead!

I’m about to get super busy with teaching–my second love (after writing). I teach Creative Writing at the University of Dayton, and we return next week–online for the first two weeks (at least). Also, for the first time in two years (and the first time ever ONLINE), I’m offering my LEAP & THE NET WILL APPEAR class. This class is now FULL. This is not a writing class, but a “life class” for anyone, all about making positive changes in your life, and I’m looking forward to practicing what I preach, and getting new focus and clarity.

I’m also excited to announce that I’ll be teaching another course for Word’s Worth Writing Connections this winter. My three-week  REVISION INSPIRATION class, for those who’ve hit the celebratory goal of finishing a rough draft, begins Tuesday, February 16th. There are also courses led by two other fabulous instructors. I hope you’ll check them out!

I’ve been reading such great books lately. Just finished The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn and it kept me up to 1 AM! Other recent books that would make fantastic gifts are The Daughter of Black Lake Cathy Marie Buchanan, Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi, The Pull of the Stars by Emma Donaghue, and The Exiles by Christina Baker Kline. I highly recommend them all!
