I am taking this week off from LJ updates to focus on my revisions. I’ll check back in here around Thanksgiving.
On Friday, I leave for Pittsburgh for the National Council of Teachers of English annual conference. This is one of my very favorite conferences to attend and I am stoked. If you see me there, please say hi. Here’s where you can find me:
