Friday Fare: 4/5/19

I didn’t *mean* to take a month off from blogging, but it happened – so I’m glad to be back and glad to share some links with you.

In no particular order, a couple author friends of mine recently release books.  I cannot wait to read Meg Hafdahl‘s “Daughters of Darkness” and K. Bird Lincoln‘s “Last Dream of Her Mortal Soul.”

This obituary won the Internet.

I am obsessed with reading up on the daily routines of creative types.  This piece about the daily rituals of artists like Joan Didion and Patti Smith did not disappoint.

I’m fairly obsessed with the Instagram feed and blog for Shutterbean.  I also recently made this recipe for Creamy Sausage Mushroom Pasta and it’s a winner.


Listening: Spotify has been my go-to lately for streaming music.  And I was thrilled to find the 90s Pop Rock Essentials playlist.  Good. Times.

Reading: I had the opportunity to go the Murder & Mayhem in Chicago at the end of March and came home with more for my TBR pile:

Otherwise, I’m reading Layne Fargo’s “Temper” and April Henry’s “Blood Will Tell.”  I also finally finished Gillian Flynn’s “Sharp Objects” and whoa … that was amazing.  If you’re interested in what I’m reading, read, etc., you can follow me on Goodreads.

Writing Life: Very good.  Great progress on a project I’m working on with some friends and steady progress on Dragonfly.

Happy springtime friends!

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.
