Flannery O'Connor quotation

From today's Writer's Almanac, from Garrison Keillor:

Flannery O'Connor said, "Everywhere I go, I'm asked if I think the universities stifle writers. My opinion is that they don't stifle enough of them."

wishin' and hopin' and dreamin'

I wish and hope and dream of writing time someday! Someday...

Seriously, teaching has been taking up most of my time. I haven't even been writing on any of my blogs lately. I visit my homegirls at my favorite message board, blog for my class blog (URL is private, sorry!), read for class, and prepare lessons for my classes. The good news is that I've got six weeks left! The bad news is that there's only six weeks left to get it all done!

Some good news to report:
  • Nicole Johnson, my favorite actress and author of my favorite book Fresh-Brewed Life, got married recently! You can catch up with her on www.freshbrewedlife.com!

  • Jen Abbas, author of Generation EX: Adult Children of Divorce and the Healing of Our Pain, is working on a new edition of her book for another publisher! Yay Jen! You go girl!
  • We are still waiting to hear about whether or not DH will go active duty Air Force, rather than reserve like he is now. That uncertainty sometimes drives me completely insane, but other times I shove it out of my mind and don't even consider it.
