The news is that my website is alive and well. Writing Is Living...

Creating a website is like gardening. You begin with a seed of an idea and then it begins to grow and multiply. As incongruous as it may sound, the pandemic was good timing. It gave me unlimited time to work on it. It occupied my mind almost obsessively, helping me through the separation from my family, in France and the United States, and friends too.

As I get ready to query agents for my book, I learn from other writers, take workshops, and attend symposiums, for example. I also use this blog to apply the [Nobel-prize-winning physicist Richard] Feynman technique: in brief, explaining what I learned helps me assimilate that new knowledge.

Cheers!
