What Now?

Well, very soon, an updated version of this website! 

In the meantime, a tiny and terrific book by Ann Patchett titled exactly that–what now?   It’s based on a graduation speech she once gave at Sarah Lawrence College, and it’s laced with sweet, funny, pithy nuggets of advice–or at least advice that has worked for her (she’s a very un-pushy person).  Just to share one: “For the most part wisdom comes in chips, not blocks.  You have to be willing to gather them constantly, and from sources you never imagined to be probable.”  Words for a writer, or anyone wanting her life to be a surprising, always unfolding proposition, to take to heart.
