Despite a ferocious cold that has lasted two weeks already, I made it into the Bazaar Cafe in San Francisco for Jamey Genna's reading series last night. It was fun to read microflash that I hadn't read before, great to meet new writers and a musician—all stellar.
My husband Steve just published an essay at Manifest-Station on his trip to the ER on Thanksgiving. Trump's a major character. So am I.
I had a microflash accepted at Threadcount, a very cool magazine that has published a ton of writers I admire. Can't wait to see my piece online in May. Here's their archive, well worth browsing. Love their covers too.
I have a new nonfiction microflash up at ENTROPY, in a cool series on birds they've been running. I didn't write "Avian Portent" as a New Year's omen, but it fits 2017.
I predict it will be a year of demonstrations, I hope effective ones. Steve and I are going to the Earth2Trump demonstration in Oakland on January 2 (Ben's joining us for that one) and the Women's March in Oakland on January 21.
And I'm looking forward to reading with some great writers at the Bazaar Cafe in San Francisco on Sunday, January 15. Details here.
