Here are some things I'm giving a Whoop! about:
2. ICYMI, my husband Steve and I have put our Backyard Camino on pause. Still a vicarious traveler, I'm following a Harvard ornithologist's bike ride across America. He posts daily on Twitter @ScottVEdwards1.
3. Are you guilty of doomscrolling? Well, I might be a little guilty of doomwriting. I posted a couple of stories on Whoop Jenny! (Stones and The Hug) that had a grim perspective on neighborliness. I was trying to copy the mood of Shirley Jackson's short story, The Lottery. The normalization of inhuman behavior sneaks up on a society, and society starts at home. Spooky, isn't it?
4. Here's a Twitter thread that tickled me. It's about the life-changing magic of tidying up your writing.
5. Something funny my writing mentor texted to me:
"Writing is hard. Paint."
