Just got a check for $100 from ZONE 3, where my essay "Some Things I Forgot" appeared. Lovely because I'd forgotten it was on its way. Lovely because I love ZONE 3 and would have published there anyway.
And nice tweets from writers I don't know in praise of "Leftovers" in ATTICUS REVIEW, and an email from a flash writer I do know praising my flash sequence on Freud's Dora, which she read in NOTHING TO DECLARE: A GUIDE TO THE FLASH SEQUENCE, the only place it's available now, an anthology that I love but thought no one was reading!
It's also a beautiful day, temperatures in the 80s. Steve and I just had lunch on the outdoor patio of a cafe with a talented writer/former student who's just finished her m.a. Strolled to the local indie bookstore (Books on B in Hayward) to order a couple of books, stopped for ice cream cones on the way back. The last week of classes at Cal State East Bay. Summer is starting.
