I've been a bit MIA from the blogging world. Learning the ropes of the new job has taken up a lot of my time, but over the weekend, I finally felt like I was ready to tackle my fiction again. And to that end, I looked at a short story I've been working on, made a few more changes, and found two more markets to send it to. Also found another market for a personal essay I wrote a few months ago, and got that in the mail, as well.

Next up is a bit of research. I'm a bit worried about accurately portraying Italy - especially the Piedmont region which isn't as well known as say, Tuscany. But that's the challenge.

I think my blog has become a bit boring lately...will have to look into changing that. :-) Stay tuned for what I come up with!


  1. Fun research. Glad to hear you are mailing stuff out.

    Here you on the blog front. I wish I could be more consistent.

    Do you have a work email address yet?

  2. Hello! I've been MIA too. Life is just so busy!!

  3. Have you hunted down bloggers and blogs dealing with that region? I'm sure locals would be happy to help you with the local flavor.

  4. I go through periods with my blog where I feel like I'm just saying the same thing over and over and must be boring people to death!

    Good luck with the short story!

  5. Oooh, excellent idea to find bloggers in the region, Devon! People love to help for this kind of thing. I bet you'd find lots willing, Melissa.

    I hear you on being busy. 'Tis the time of year!


I love to hear from you!
