It's been quiet around here for the last few days. My apologies. There's been some excitement at the office, a pile of other to-dos for my other writing commitments, and I'm spending a lot of time on a little surprise for this blog (coming soon to a computer screen near you!)
Thank you for your patience, dear readers. Thank you for your kindness.
Thank you in advance while I take another few days to right my writing self again, and swing back into a routine here on She Writes and Rights.
I am taking the rest of this week off from the blog. I rarely do this, and I don't really want to, but I feel it's needed right now. I'm in need of more moments like the one pictured above, and less moments like the scene in my kitchen late last night when I accidentally broke one of our dinner plates and promptly burst into tears.
Tomorrow I'll post another article over on Prodigal, but I won't be back here again until next week.
Here are a few worthy reads to preoccupy you until my return :
Thanks, Joe, for the needed advice.
The denim dungeon (I've been there, too.)
Make a good first impression.
And this story for This American Life had me in tears and I haven't stopped thinking about it since. (I think I've mentioned before how much I love This American Life. Are you a fan? If you love stories and writing and humor and life, you need to give it a listen. It will be the best part of your Friday and/or weekend.)
