My Newsletter About the Writing Life
My monthly newsletter, Jottings, is intended to reach out to you, my readers, with information and insights—from angst to excitement—about writing and reading.
Jottings was originally a blog but it became a newsletter right before publishing my latest, and sixth, book, Word for Word: A Writer's Life, where I reflected on my own experiences as an author during the past decades.
Jottings is a way to share my insights and those of other authors as well as links to interesting articles, podcasts, and books about the writing life. Sometimes I'll excerpt and expound on my own work.
If you sign up for the newsletter, I'll mail you a free autographed, first-edition hardback of my gardening memoir, Four Tenths of an Acre: Reflections on a Gardening Life. Click on the title to learn more about the book.
