Sorry for the slowdown this week, readers; Hurricane Sandy combined with a few crushing piles of papers to grade this week, and I wasn’t able to devote the time to writing blog posts here at Writerly Life. But rest assured, all is well and I’m back in the saddle, eager to keep the writerly life going.
For those of you caught in the wave of destruction Sandy has brought, Writerly Life is with you, and I wish you all the best. Keep warm, stay safe, and think about your own writing projects as a way of preserving normalcy in your life for the difficult days ahead.
And for those of you looking for a little writing inspiration today, or just some distraction from the labor of the day, it’s time to get your mind in a creative way. I’ve got a roundup of some interesting articles and links to stoke your creative fires.
