I need a nap! But I’ve been really productive these past few days—I’ve got over 2000 words written, which means my essay’s almost done, and today I had a really productive meeting with the folks at the NYPL. Even though I tend to shy away from conflict, I really value the opportunity to express myself, to hear others’ point of view, and to work collaboratively to find solutions. With effective communication, anything can be changed…you just have to SPEAK UP!
Did you know there’s a great new reading series in Crown Heights? It’s held at Franklin Park, and I’ve just been invited to read on June 14th. Don’t wait until then to stop by—especially if you’re a writer yourself and feel like sharing your work with others.
Lastly, Wish got a great review over at BrownGirl Speaks—this blogger really knows books, so I appreciate these words:
This is a worthy selection. It’s very rare to find a self published, debut novel with such depth, wisdom, and maturity and A Wish After Midnight is definitely a gem.
