Friday Fare: 9/28/18

I’ve admired Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s writing ever since she was identified as the “mystery brunette” caught in Tom Hiddleston’s embrace.  And it’s gotten to the point that if I see her byline attached to an article, I will read it.  No matter what the topic.  She’s that good of a writer.  So I was thrilled to read that her morning routine is about as scattered as mine is.

J.K. Rowling is a goddess.  This just solidifies my assumption.


Finally, Senator Tammy Duckworth is an icon.  Was thrilled to see that Vogue wrote a profile on her.


Listening: Gillian Welch curated her own playlist on Spotify.  And it’s sublime. Here’s one of my favorite songs:

Reading: Just started reading Kara Richardson Whitely‘s latest memoir “The Weight of Being.”  As someone who has engaged in a lifelong struggle with weight, I very much appreciate Ms. Whitely’s books.

Writing Life: I did a read-through of my latest draft of Dragonfly.  And it wasn’t terrible!  It wasn’t great, but I’m hoping that I’ll be ready to query agents in Q1 of 2019!

– Shelley


What is Friday Fare? As a recap, on Fridays I post link love to the various bits of arcane shiz I discover on the Interwebs.  I liken it to a glimpse into my mind, but without the 80s song lyrics or mental cobwebs.
