In the meantime, here's what I'm writing as February dissolves into March:
- A new holiday tale about how my late husband, Ken, carried on with Christmas preparations after I tripped over a cat on the stairs, and fractured my left shoulder.
- An essay about how baton twirling and psychologist Albert Ellis helped me overcome a longstanding anxiety disorder.
- A piece on common grammar, punctuation and language usage errors that even experienced writers and editors let slip by.
- A story about Grandma Gertie's Brown Betty, a baked pudding I adored as a child.,.and think I'll prepare this afternoon...nothing like a cinnamon scent to warm up a house on a bitterly cold last-gasp-of-winter afternoon.
