My husband and I are headed to Nantucket this week and not a minute too soon. I love New Hampshire, but this Florida girl needs the smell of salt air and a horizon line — there are way too many trees here in the Granite State. You have to climb a mountain if you want any kind of vista, and mountain climbing has never been my outdoor activity of choice. Plus, like most of us, I do a lot of mental mountain climbing indoors, and I can’t wait to rest my mind for a week. To that end, I will not be taking my computer with me on vacation, just trashy novels. Or I might just sit and stare at the waves. Regardless, I’ll post my next blog the week of Sept. 10.
When I come back, though, there are plenty of exciting things on my creative horizon and your support is what helps make them happen, so I thought I’d share. The book project continues, with guidance and encouragement from a NYC literary agent; plans to produce How to Draw a Nekkid Man (formerly I Will Be Good) in the summer/fall of 2013 are underway; The Moth is interested in a Christmas story; and speaking engagements and performances for the fall are lining up:
- Oct. 26: 30th College Reunion, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN
- Nov. 10: The Moth on the Road, Fitzgerald Theater, St. Paul, MN
- Nov. 13: Keynote speaker, She Did It! Conference, Babson College, Wellesley, MA; produced by betterafter50.com
- Dec. 4: Guest Lecturer, The Mothers Club, Cambridge, MA
If you have additional ideas for speaking engagements or performance opportunities where I might be a good fit, please let me (or my agent) know! In the meantime, I hope that you, too, have a chance to rest your mind this long holiday weekend as you look toward your own creative horizons. And now, I’m off! To celebrate, here’s an enchanting video that’s been making it’s way around Facebook — you might need to give it time to load. Enjoy!
