last time….when I was looking for a piece to work up for the writing workshop. Anyone have any ideas of stories I could rework for this thing I have to write about being a female head of household? The editor is very forgiving–anything in the general range of topic will work. I’ve been working all day on a piece that is turning out to be rather smarmy and over-thought. I’m not so much of an essayist–more of a story teller, I guess.
I was kind of thinking of playing with “where my mother is” a little bit but maybe there’s a better story out there. blech.
This thing was due in December but I got it extended to January 6. Pushing it….(though fair enough, once I know what I’m going to write, I’m very fast, so the crunch is for the idea, not the writing time.)
