A Month in a Writer’s Life – May & June 2019

It’s been a while since I posted regularly. After nearly finishing the A to Z Challenge, I needed time to recuperate from intensive blogging, and I had to catch up with my writing.

Another year goes by…

Another year goes by…

A couple of days I got an automatic post from Facebook inviting me to view my 2014 summary and – of course – share it with my friends.

I shrugged and created my own: a simple collage of seven anthologies published this year….
