Unlike at the BlogHer13 conference, where women donned dresses and heels despite the fact that 99.5% of the attendees were other women, at AWP most people wore jeans. And…Continue
Let’s face it: there are times when, as much as you love and want to write, you just can’t do it. It may be that life has swelled like a tidal wave and crashed down hard on you. You may be ill, depressed, anxious, or maybe someone you love has died and you need to…
