Writerly recap for October & November 2018

It’s mid-December as I write this, and I am just back from a wonderful quick getaway to Ucluelet on Vancouver Island. (I had a birthday. I hid.) This recap of October and November is a bit late, but I’ll use that birthday as an excuse.

By the way, if you want to receive this writerly recap as a bi-monthly newsletter, you can sign up for my Mostly Harmless Newsletter.
