Happy March 1st! How was your week? After a really nice Saturday and a busy Sunday, I’m a little bummed about how much I just dragged ass all week. I just could not get caught up or find the energy to accomplish much of anything beyond errands and administrative tasks! My creative energy was seriously lacking. Well, not was…is.
- I am one of the 2013 A Practical Wedding writing interns! This is basically the highlight of my year. I will have my first post for them going up next week!
- I will be at SXSW next week (I’m mentoring again this year) so if you will be there and want to hang out, get in touch!
- I’ve been thinking of microblogging during the month of March. I have a lot on my plate right now, and most of it is stuff I wasn’t anticipating at the beginning of the year when I decided to start working on a new direction for this blog and taking on contributors. (Whoops!) I’m looking at a really busy March and April but things should level off after that. There are a lot of creative benefits for me from doing something like that, and people seem to respond well, so…that’s going to be a thing this month. (And there might be regular long-form posts and guests posts as well; we’ll just have to see!)
All right, onto some good reading material!

Too Brilliant to Bathe [The New Inquiry — Uh…this is what I’ve been going for lately. I finally got my eyebrows waxed this week after the longest I’ve ever gone without since I first started caring about my eyebrows…all I can say is I wish I had taken “before” pictures. I’m getting my hair done tomorrow. I hope SXSW appreciates all this effort!]
