This week's Dry Martini column: in which I run a little and rest a lot.
Over at Another Mother Runner: I have had enough winter now.
My biweekly column at Another Mother Runner is live! This week, I try to not complain about weather and tell you something weird.
Locus magazine, for whom I write about science fiction, fantasy, and points in-between, is now putting selected review online. Mine are here. Feel free to share and enjoy.
And, yes, I really am a huge geek.
Over on the Another Mother Runner blog, a few words about the end of the year. Spoiler: I haven't done as much running as I'd hope. Or, at least, running in an athletic sense.
I've been running around like a woman chased by bees for the last few days and haven't had a lot of computer time. So only two links, plus some shameless promotion.
And for the shameless promotion: Look! A Dry Martini column at AMR! This one is about a PR and a road trip.
This is my (recently reorganized) yarn stash.
Why am I showing this to you? Two reasons: 1) it will likely not look this good for too long and 2) because I recently spent a great deal of time thinking about yarn stash because of Clara Parkes.
You might know Clara. You might not. She is, above all else, a lovely human who it’s fun to be around. She also writes and edits books. And her most recent project is A Stash of One’s Own: Knitters on Loving, Living with, and Letting go of Yarn. It’ll officially be released on Sept. 12.
Yours truly just happens to have an essay in there, along with Meg Swansen, Lela Nargi, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, Amy Herzog, Ann Shayne, Gudrun Johnston, Kay Gardiner, Rachel Atkinson, Franklin Habit, Anna Maltz, Sue Shankle, Amy Christoffers, Clara Parkes, Jillian Moreno, Susan B. Anderson, Lilith Green, Rachael Herron, Kristine Vejar, Eugene Wyatt, Aimée Osbourn-Gille, Kim McBrien Evans, and Debbie Stoller. I can promise you that at least a few of these will be funny and a few will be touching and all of them will be good, because that’s how Clara rolls.
If you’re a yarn-y type or a word-lover or both, you should pre-order.
As for my stash closet: I learned that I really do not need another tote bag ever. EVER.
On taking the time to enjoy things, over at Another Mother Runner.
