What a week



This week has been a whirlwind. On Tuesday, we hosted the neighborhood bookclub. This likely doesn’t sound like much, but it took a considerable effort to have 20 people over for dinner after a work day. That said, everyone sat shoulder to shoulder in our living room, holding tiny plates of shrimp and sandwiches. There was quite a bit of feedback on “Counting Coup,” which was both wonderful and always awkward to sit through.

It’s hard to hear critique of something you love without being defensive and a jerk in response. I’m learning. I’m trying. I’m far from perfect. (And neither is my writing.)


On Thursday, I was interviewed on the local PBS station about “Counting Coup” and it went well. It was terrifying at first, but quickly became fun. The host, Ted Simons, was a doll. Personable, kind, and generous. I hope I get to be a guest again.

As far as writing goes, this has been the best week yet. Thank you for your constant support!

  1. Catching up on my blog reading (with luck I’ll catch up on my correspondence soon too! ha!) and popping in to say THIS IS SO FREAKIN’ AWESOME! Congratulations for all of this: hosting 20 people for dinner (wow!), participating in a critical discussion of your own work (I’m sure they had so many positive things to say!), and doing the TV interview.

    Also, how cool that you have a neighborhood book club! There have been attempts to start those in my neighborhood, but they always devolve into (or, more frequently, start as) gatherings of women who want to get buzzed on wine and complain about their husbands—they don’t actually read the books!
