the New York reading that I decided not to attend

'cause I only have so much money to do so much traveling and sometimes you gotta say no so you can say yes to something else.

but if you're in NY-- go support mom writers

I've written 1/2 a book

Children's biography on Rev. James Lawson. Have another interview scheduled to clarify and hopefully get some photos and then finish it. Then to a publisher. Whoa. Truly interesting heroic man.

On then to Diane Nash and it just so happens that the press that is publishing an anthology with one of my stories is looking for young adult novels with a female protog to publish next year. Hmmmm. . .

Next year is the 50th anniversary of the Freedom Rides so I'm trying to write something to send to publications now.

Ireland back on the map

The woman editing the anthology coming out of Ireland fell ill and the project was stalled. I thought it had been abandoned. But it's coming out and the book launch in Ireland is still going to happen so that makes 4 anthologies that will have a Gwendolyn Joyce Mintz work in them this year and that means I just might find myself in Kiltyclogher:)

The long way home

repacking/organizing the last of my stuff that was in a storage room 'cause well, it's time to go. But Chattanooga and Memphis maybe a jaunt to Chi town 'fore I get back westward.
