A VERY Good Week For Me
Well, hello intrepid blog readers! I haven’t posted anything but good news recently (a welcome change from the usual diet of whining, moping, and cursing the agents/editors/children who don’t appreciate me adequately, n’est-ce pas?) — so why stop now?
I am happy (more like peeing-my-panties ecstatic) to announce that my essay, Coming Out of the Craft Closet, has been chosen by the very wise, very discerning, very fabulous editors of skirt! magazine to appear in the October issue!
For those of you in the know, this is the essay I wrote about my mother’s constant attempts to make me love crafting as a child… and my resultant, absolute detestation of all things handmade. Um, she hasn’t seen this one yet.
Quotes from Beta readers: “This is hilarious! Mom’s gonna kill you!” — Lari, another daughter.
“Wow! This is really good. Has your mom seen this yet?” — David, my loving husband.
I think it’s okay. I mean, Christmas is pretty far from October, right? She won’t hold a grudge.Will she?
Oh, God. What have I done?????
