Hi Judith. I saw you got my book in one of your comments. Did you read it? Did you also review it on amazon and or goodreads? Wow. I am sorry if I missed all that goodness. :)
I was suggested to speak to women studies in university - I don't know many in academia, do you have any idea how one might reach out to women studies and how it works with their speaker circuits / programs ? thanks much. See you soon!!!
Thanks for asking Judith. I am teaching Transformative Blogging for women, blogging when I can at Feral Mom, Feral Writer, and in love with making photo-poem micro movies. I've started a series of blogs in support of women bloggers on my main site. I've also just commited myself to taking this year to work on a book based on the blogging courses. A rich and happy writing life, as it sounds like yours continues to be...I am so glad to have made the connection with you. To gritty, pithy writing and all that it offers!
Loved your Valentine post at Huffington Post...so beautifully honest and moving. Wish I'd had chance to work with you at UCD, graduated back in 1991. I worked at WRAC as it was called back then as an intern and minored in Women's Studies so long ago. Off to check out your blog. Thanks again...and I think that love story belongs as much today as in the 60s.
Thanks so much for responding Judith. I've been keeping an eye on SheWrites even though I haven't been active, too much going on in my life, and have noticed how well you're doing, Huff Post etc, and how well you're integrated into the doing around here. If the small press that has my book right now doesn't take me on, I will be joining your ranks.
Hi Judith. Thanks for the invitation to be friends and my apologies for not responding sooner. There aren't enough hours in the day to do everything I want. Hope this season, and your project, are both moving along at a happy clip for you
Thanks for connecting. We have a lot in common! Would love to email at some point about your experiences in women's studies and all of the changes in academe. Did you ever go to NWSA (I'm currently the VP, it's a different organization than it was when I started attending in 98).
Hi Judith, Clinical neuropsychology was my academic area. My first NF book was a text but my latest "Trouble In Mind" is a trade book: a collection of cases like those of Oliver Sacks. Like your area a rich ground for novel ideas!
We're delighted to have you join us in the novelist group – please accept my belated welcome (I’ve been finishing a novel on deadline, and traveling to boot).
If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.
We do a live chat the first Wednesdays of each month at 1 EST, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.
Hi Judith. Thanks for the welcome. Right now, I'm just blogging about my life in transition after university and my travels here in Korea. Most of my energy before that went into political journalism, which was a whirlwind education. I started a writer's group here in Korea so I'm just getting back into poetry again. I'm hoping being connected through SheWrites will spark some of those creative urges again.
Can't wait to read your memoir! I first loved food and food culture when I moved to Davis and started hanging out at community dinners at the Domes and working at the co-op. It's neat that we have similar geographies- I wonder if I'll recognize some of the foods and places in your book.
