When a little good news goes a long way, or, thanks for the vote of confidence, universe.

So, I’m writing, and I’m struggling. I’m fixated on stupid, non-plot oriented issues like “does my character shove her shoes into the corner or does she push them…” which is me so very not in what John Gardner called “the vivid and continuous dream” that a writer needs in order to inhabit the story process. So, I check my Facebook and Twitter. Because my lack of dream state is boring me.

And I find out that two of my essays have made two different “best of …” literary lists for 2015!

Thank you Creative Nonfiction, and thank you Atlanta Magazine (and ArtsATL)  for the votes of confidence and the resulting propellant into the dream state.
