Have a great weekend!
I always love your Friday Fridge Clean-Out, Lisa! I highly recommend Beth Ann Fennelly's new book. I read her tips in The Writer last month, immediately ordered her book, and then entered The Writer's micro-memoir contest she was judging. Surprise! I opened the December issue and found my piece published there as one of ten finalists. Very fun!
Hi @Lorri - that is wonderful news, Congratulations! Thanks for reading the blog and letting me know.
