One of the organizers of the reading series Flash Fiction Forum wrote to me that she ran across "The Madwoman on BART" on matchbook and would love to have me read it in their series. I said yes, even though it means missing a meeting of my writing group, which is always super-useful. It's in San Jose and this one's hybrid--part in person, part Zoom. I think I'll take Zoom; it's a long drive for a short flash.
A rejection from a magazine that semi-solicited me. That is, they solicited me, but I think along with other people. Always a bummer.
Slowly but surely getting household tasks and health tasks completed. Root canal yesterday and more health appointments this week and next. Seems never-ending at my age. We went to a dinner party on Sunday (!), and out to breakfast this morning (!). COVID statistics in Alameda County pretty good right now. We're planning some trips. Ojai in August, where I'll take a writing class. Aberdeen some time in the fall or winter, where Ben will be doing a master's degree. Exciting news.
