IMG_2111Hey to all the new readers and followers who found Catching Days by way of Freshly Pressed! Thanks for your comments and your likes. I hope each of you will be back.

And a big thank you to Freshly Pressed for highlighting Nichole Bernier’s post in the How We Spend Our Days series on days in the lives of writers. Pam Houston kicked off the series back in 2009, and a guest writer has written about one of his or her days (or in the case of Dan Chaon, his nights) on the first of each month since then. 49 writers so far. If you’d like to read more posts in this series or see if your favorite writer has written a day, here’s the list of all 49 writers, with links to their posts. I’ll announce the next writer in the series in the next few days with an introduction to some aspect of his or her writing.

As Catching Days approaches its five year anniversary in September, a big thank you to longtime readers and followers as well!

IMG_2083For all of you, here’s a preview of how I am, and will be, spending my days and what you can look forward to here over the next few weeks: what real, live book I’m reading (that’s been turned into a movie), what book I’m listening to on Audible (and why), what Shakespeare has to do with it, my upcoming writing week in Provincetown, what interesting development has occurred in my other writing, and a report on the why and the how and the ups and the downs of my recent efforts to BMH–broaden my horizons : ) And a look ahead at how I’ll be spending my days in October–at two cool writing conferences on opposite sides of the country. Well, all this might spill over into next month too…

What I also have to look forward to in the next few weeks (which fits in nicely with BMH) is a visit to each of your blogs. More soon, there or here.


ps-how are you spending your days?
