A Few Things on Tuesday Night

I thought I would pass on a few things that I have enjoyed reading lately.

This blog post about Ray Bradbury on list making and it's connection to writing is worth a few minutes of your time.

Views from a Window Seat is chock full of such beautiful, and helpful, thoughts on writing. So much to love.

Marilyn Nelson is going to be at the Festival of Faith and Writing in Grand Rapids, Michigan in April. Wish I could go, but the schedule is full. Others speaking are Anne Lamott, Scott Cairns, Rachel Held Evans, Richard Foster, and Pam Munoz Ryan. And the list goes on.



  1. I'm reading Jeannine's book now, Dori, just savoring a little at a time. Isn't it wonderful? Thanks for the other "news" too. I'll check out the Bradbury article, too! Happy Valentine's Day week!

  2. Lovely to see my book just above Marilyn Nelson's Carver, which is one of my all time favorites. Thank you! That Festival of Faith does look amazing. Too bad we can't be everywhere!
